XM Classics was a channel on the XM Satellite Radio network that specialized in playing traditional Classical music. It was available on channel 110 on XM and channel 864 on DirecTV. The program director for XM Classics was Martin Goldsmith (previously the longtime host of the public radio series Performance Today).

In November 2008, following XM's merger with rival satellite radio provider Sirius, XM Classics was replaced with Sirius' Symphony Hall channel.
