Electric Area is a Trance / Progressive House Dance/Electronic music satellite channel operated by Sirius XM Radio, broadcasting on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 52,[1] XM Satellite Radio channel 52[2] and Dish Network channel 6052. It was carried on DirecTV until February 9, 2010. On May 5, 2011, Electric Area can now be heard on channel 52[3] for both services and Dish Network 6052.

It was previously on Sirius channel 33, and called Area 33. (Prior to that it was called Area 63 and was on channel 63) Area features some of the world's most renowned DJs such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Carl Cox, Erik Morillo, Paul Van Dyk, Benny Benassi, Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez, Ferry Corsten, Thomas Gold, Serge Devant, Deep Dish, Annie Mac, Sasha and John Digweed. On June 24, 2008, Area 33 was moved to channel 38 to make room for the move of SIRIUS Disorder, which was on channel 33 (now The Bridge). On November 12, 2008, Area dropped its "38" position on the logo because of the Sirius-XM merger, and replaced The Move on the XM channel lineup. Most recently, Mediabase delisted the S038-FM channel's playlist, along with co-owned Pop2K; Mediabase would readd the station to its Dance panel in January 2014.

On September 12, 2010, the channel was renamed Electric Area to expand its exclusive dance music format.
