The '90s on 9 (or just The '90s) is the name of Sirius XM Radio's 1990s music channel. The service signed on September 25, 2001 and broadcasts on Sirius XM channel 9, as well as on Dish Network channel 6009. It was also on heard DirecTV channel 806 until February 9, 2010. On November 12, 2008, it was added to Sirius, replacing the original Pulse on Sirius channel 9, whereas the new Pulse, formerly Flight 26 was added to channel 12 on the Sirius side. This is Sirius's first all-1990s channel since I-90 signed off on November 4, 2002. The old Pulse carried a 1990s & hot AC hybrid, whereas the new Pulse just carries modern AC music. In addition, it also replaced the online-only Super Shuffle channel on Sirius, last heard on satellites in mid-2008.[1]

The channel focuses mostly on hit-driven R&B, Hip-Hop, Rhythmic, Dance, Rock, Teen Pop, Pop, and Alternative tracks from the late 80s and early 1990s (1988 to 1999), although songs from early 2000 have also been seen, when the decade's music scene was beginning to evolve and would later embrace new genres and styles. Occasionally, lesser-known 90s songs are played, preceded by the 5 CD Changer, set on random tagline. The channel is commercial-free, and as of February 3, 2014, jockless, when both Jo Jo Morales and KT Harris were let go in a cost-cutting move.[2][better source needed]
