SIRIUS XM has launched its Android app, offering much of the programming on America’s only major satellite radio network. Of course, the app doesn’t offer Howard Stern, SIRIUS XM’s largest draw and one of the primary reasons that many early adopters signed-up, and some of the live sports broadcasting that attracted another chunk of subscribers aren’t available either. But at least there’s still news, lots of music, and Open & Anthony if you’re into that sort of thing.
Head over to Siriusxm.com/Android to get your taste of satellite radio. The app is currently installable via APK and comes with a free 7-day trial. Using the app beyond that will cost extra depending on your subscription status. SIRIUS/XM subscribers will have to pay an additional fee to add Premium Internet Radio onto their current service.
Anyone with a compatible phone/region can download SIRIUS now. Correction: that’s anyone without a Backflip because you’re not allowed to install devices outside of the Android Market on that phone.
