SiriusXM’s premium radio service is now available for free
SiriusXM is now the latest company to start offering free premium service during the coronavirus pandemic. At the end of March, the satellite radio company announced that it would offer free premium service until May 15!
Listeners will now have access to 300 of their unique radio channels. The premium service also includes access to a handful of dance and electronic music channels, such as BPM and Diplo’s revolution.
BPM – one of the most popular EDM channels in SiriusXM’s catalog – features segments from big names like Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki and The Chainsmokers. Likewise, Diplo’s revolution regularly features segments hosted by Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Party Favor, and more.
You don’t even need an account to access this free service. Simply download the SiriusXM app or go to the free web player to start listening.
Make up for lost pleasure
This move by SiriusXM is an attempt to keep everyone at home and practice social distancing. It is difficult to isolate yourself for long periods of time. Incentives with free services are therefore a method that many entertainment companies use.
Apple offers 90-day free subscriptions for its music streaming platform, as well as 90 free days for their Logic Pro X audio software. Other companies like Bandsintown and Bandcamp have set up relief funds to help musicians affected by this pandemic. And that’s one of the countless live streaming events that have sprung up to make up for lost live income and fan experiences.
