List of Sirius XM Radio channels

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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.

Most internet channels can be "personalized" through a menu of sliders referring to specific elements which can be adjusted. This does not apply to such stations as the "party" stations.

For example, Classic Vinyl can be adjusted as such:

  • Classic hits (plays classic rock hits from the sixties to seventies) versus depth (plays lesser-known tracks)
  • Earlier (sixties) versus later (seventies) Vinyl
  • The amount of British artists on the station

Also available is the ability to have the station only play music without interruptions.


"xL" is a Designation and Rating in which that Means that the Channel is Uncensored and contains Explicit Language or Mature Programming that may be Offensive to Some Viewers and may be Unsuitable for Children to Listen to. On Sirius, It doesn't use the "xL" Rating, it just names it as "Uncensored" or "Uncut". But on XM, It does contain the Marking. On DirecTV listings, XM rated the XL Channels as "TV-MA" for Profanity.
