Jump to: navigation, search

Since 2008, Sirius XM Radio has had a similar channel lineup, with a few differences based on whether the individual has a Sirius Satellite Radio or an XM Satellite Radio. Although the two services merged in 2007, for technical and legal reasons separate radios continue to be manufactured for the separate services despite the programming lineups having merged.

The following is a list of channels on Sirius XM and Sirius XM Canada. There are a total of 151 full-time channels on Sirius XM, 130 of which are on Sirius XM Canada. Not included are channels that are specifically used for live sports programming, as well as former music channels that were merged with a duplicate music channel after the merger.
