SiriusXM Love is a music channel that plays love songs from soft-AC artists and airs on Sirius XM Radio, and Dish Network. It airs on channel 17 on Sirius XM Radio. On XM, it replaced former channel The Heart on November 12, 2008. On Sirius XM Canada, the channel retains the old Sirius Love name, Until February 9, 2010, it was heard on DirecTV channel 819.

From 2009-2014, Sirius XM Love was pre-empted annually during the Christmas season and replaced with "Holly," a seasonal format devoted to contemporary pop Christmas music. This format change typically occurred during the first two weeks of November and continued until the end of the year. (Holly is also available year round through Sirius XM's online service.) In 2015, Holly pre-empted Sirius XM's Velvet instead, allowing Sirius XM Love to retain its normal format through December.

On May 22, 2015, Sirius XM Love became a limited-run James Taylor Channel.

Popularity[edit]

During the holiday season, the Great Wolf Lodge chain of waterpark resorts will change to Sirius XM Love when it has been switched to Holly for the holiday season and to contribute to their "Snowland" event that takes place at every Great Wolf Lodge every year. It probably changes back to their usual music after December 25 when Snowland is over and Wiley's Winterfest has begun. Many stores and businesses also tune into this channel during the holiday season as well if they subscribe to Sirius XM radio.
