In emails sent to former satellite radio subscribers, SiriusXM in the U.S and Canada is offering lapsed customers free access to sixty channels for two weeks starting August 30th.

The free channels include a variety of commercial free music, sports, news and entertainment stations. Sorry no Howard Stern!

After the trial period ends, former subscribers in the U.S. will have the ability to renew their subscriptions for 5 months for $25. In Canada, readers tell Digital Home they have been offered a year of service for $99.
