From sports to blues, pop, rock and opera, Sirius XM has it covered.
August is coming to a close along with summer. The sun’s a little cooler- even without an eclipse-and you may find yourself reaching for a warm sweater in the evening. The good thing with new content though, whether it’s in the form of streaming video, movies, shows or radio, is that unlike summer, it’s here to stay.
This August, SiriusXM added new radio channels to its roster and moved some others to new locations “on the dial”. Here’s the scoop on what’s made a transition to a new home and what’s new.
