    I called siriusxm about this. They had no clue what I was talking about. They thought the Roku was a channel on their service. Turns out that customer support for siriusxm is in the Philippines. I believe you will need an internet account for the station. Just having it in your car won’t do. I couldn’t confirm this because the Philippinos had no idea what I was talking about.

      Sorry about that – thanks for letting us know. We’ll reach out to them for clarification.

      You are correct, you do need a subscription to the streaming service. This can be added to a satellite-only subscription, is included as part of the All Access subscription, or as a stand-alone streaming-only subscription.

    Sign up through their website, just need your VIN or radio ID. its only $4 more a month if you already have service in the car.

    Loved that you added Sirius, I already have 3 Sirius Radio Subscriptions . I have a question for Roku ? You have to keep logging in to this channel ,after not using on continue basis ? I had been listening to it, turned it off , came back to listen 1/2 hour later & had to login again ?! Help ?

  • Steve

    I am not seeing the Sirius channel on my player. I have a Roku XD. In the blog post it states that all Roku users can add it. Is this channel available for my player?

    Here is a tip which has worked for years. After your free trial runs out, call up to cancel your account. They will give you a reduced price for 6 months. Mark the day on your calendar and before the 6 months is up do it again. This will more than pay for the internet service plus help keep a few extra dollars in your pocket. :)

    I LOVE that I can Listen to the ” Online” Channels , Thru Roku Sirius Channel , & Not have to purchase a New Sirius Internet Radio to listen , instead of listening thru Computer !! I Even called Sirius & had Internet channels Added at No Extra Charge on my 3 satellite radios !! My Lucky day !!

    The app is great and long overdue …… however I do not enjoy the log out bug!!

    When the user stops streaming for a few minutes the App logs you out thus requiring a full log in again. It also loses your favs during the process.

    I love my Sirius XM comes alive!!

    The Screen Saver is not very creative. And the need to login each time for use is really bad implementation. As a subscriber to SiriusXM I would like to request that Linking your Roku player to the SiriusXM service be explored for authorized use over Login.

      Yeah, the screen saver is gaudy, but everything else is looking good… here’s hoping they adopt a “now playing” screen saver with the next update.

  • RickWritesNow

    Love it! Thank you. But please fix it so you don’t have to log in each time.. Typing your info using that little Roku remote takes about 10 minutes. Other than that.. brilliant. – (but.. really, do something about the login thing)

    Extremely tired of having to log in each/every time I use the app. Also is SiriusXM using a developers kit from 2 years ago?….the app is unbelievably lacking in features.

    My brother quite happily found the Sirius XM app within a few days of its release and is on his 30-day trial. He really likes the service except for one thing — its constantly logging him off. He is handicapped and has limited manual dexterity. This is difficult for him.

    I just had an extremely frustrating experience both chatting and speaking live to Sirius XM customer service. Neither of them seemed to know what a Roku is. In the end, though, they both said that the app is set to log people out after a period of inactivity and requires them to log in when starting it up again. They said “there is nothing we can do”.

    This is nonsense, of course. None of the other Roku apps require this constant authentication. This feature was put in by the programmers and can be removed by the programmers.

    Fmeh – programmed by monkeys. Old interface SDK. Loses session information between uses so you have to log in to the account *every* *freaking* *time*. Audio stream sometimes stops for no reason. Metadata/album art frequently out of sync with audio. Pretty pitiful offering considering what the Roku platform is capable of.

    Commercial-free = thumbs up!

    Lots of complaints about being logged off = thumbs down :(

    Maybe I’l try it when the bugs have been ironed out…

    i like the sirius app, i just found it today, and used it for four or five hours without getting logged off, i did notice that the music started to slow down…noticeably, probably 3/4 to 7/8 speed. i got out of the program, and then back in (didn’t have to re-enter username/password) and everything was fine. i played for about an hour more, before moving on to something else.

    any clue as to why the music would slow down?
