Sirius XM Hits 1 is a Top 40 radio station on Sirius XM Radio channel 2 and Dish Network channels 6002 and 099-02 (099-02 is only for Hopper users). It plays no commercials. The channel was formerly known as US-1 until 2004. The name is a take-off of VH1, whose name was originally an abbreviation of "Video Hits 1". Vh1 Satellite Radio once existed on XM but the channel was discontinued prior to the merger.
On May 4, 2011, at 12:01am EST, Hits 1 moved to channel 2 for Sirius radios, XM radios, and on SiriusXM Online. On Dish Network, SiriusXM Hits 1 is carried on channels 6002 and 099-02.
HitBound is a weekly program airing on Saturday at 9am and Sunday at 12pm highlighting new music on SiriusXM Hits 1. HitBound is primarily hosted by Mikey Piff but will occasionally feature guest hosts (usually artists with music featured on the show).
Songs that debut on SiriusXM Hits 1 primarily start airing on HitBound before "graduating" to The Weekend Countdown.
On occasion, popular celebrities or artists will guest host The Weekend Countdown and HitBound (promoted as a "Weekend Takeover"). Notable HitBound guest hosts include Timeflies, Jason Derulo and Britney Spears (as a "Weekend Takeover").
