    SiriusXM Introduces SiriusXM 2.0 with New Music, Sports and Entertainment Channels, Including SiriusXM Latino

    New programming available now online and over satellite to new SiriusXM Edge radios
    Additional programming includes new commercial-free music channels, and sports and comedy channels, such as channels produced with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ESPN SportsCenter, George Carlin and Upright Citizens Brigade
    SiriusXM Latino launches most comprehensive lineup of Latin channels in radio including commercial-free music, Cristina Radio featuring iconic talk show host Cristina Saralegui, RadioFormula Mexico, Playboy Radio en Espanol and more

    NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) today announced an expanded channel lineup of new and exclusive commercial-free music, sports news and comedy. The expansion includes the debut of SiriusXM Latino, a suite of new Latin channels featuring a deep variety of commercial-free music, plus programming from leading providers of Spanish-language sports, news, talk and entertainment.

    (Logo: Login )

    The launch of new programming is the first phase of SiriusXM 2.0, a major upgrade and evolution of SiriusXM's satellite and Internet delivered service that will ultimately span hardware, software, audio, and data services. By employing highly efficient modulation and compression techniques introduced as part of 2.0 technology that effectively delivers 25% more bandwidth capacity, SiriusXM will expand its audio and data services without affecting the broadcast quality of existing channels.

    Subscribers can access these new channels through SiriusXM Internet Radio and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and mobile devices. The new channels are also available by satellite through the new SiriusXM Edge, the first satellite radio able to receive the expanded programming lineup. Edge is on sale now at Shop XM Satellite Radio and available at 2,500 retail locations nationwide by this holiday shopping season. Additional programming and expanded listener capabilities will be announced in coming months as SiriusXM builds on the promise of its new 2.0 technology.

    "SiriusXM 2.0 is an exciting new chapter for our company and subscribers, and today is the first important upgrade: going live with new programming that reinforces our commitment to offer the best in audio entertainment," said Mel Karmazin, Chief Executive Officer of SiriusXM. "The new suite of channels, including the most comprehensive Latin programming lineup available in radio today, makes our combined offering of English and Spanish audio entertainment second to none. We eventually expect the exciting new features and capabilities being added to our service to offer the opportunity for lower subscriber churn and higher sales of internet radio packages. We also look forward to extending 2.0 content and features soon to our OEM car partners, bringing them and their customers the next generation of satellite radio technology."

    An easy way subscribers can get all SiriusXM programming is through the All Access Annual subscription plan: it offers all satellite radio programming, including premium channels, access to all online channels, and the ability to listen to all programming available through smartphones and mobile devices, for $199 a year, a significant savings.

    "The expansion of our commercial-free music offerings, the launch of SiriusXM Latino, the near-doubling of our comedy channels, and additions to our live sports talk, deepens the channel offerings available to SiriusXM subscribers and adds to our unparalleled audio entertainment lineup," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.

    I don't know why they needed more comedy channels. Seems excessive to me...but what do I know?

    I tend to agree. But I do know that Raw Dog is one of the most popular channels on the service.

    I think these entertainment channels as a whole likely do pretty well. There are so many alternative to the music these days, but these entertainment channels and sports lets face it Sirius has a lock on that! Honestly those are the only reason I even keep Sirius XM anymore.

    They obviously found a spot in the lineup where they were missing a Single-Artist Channel, so Carlin Radio it is.

    Tiesta’s Club Life Radio spells the end for Party Mega Mix

    We’re happy that you enjoyed Party Mega Mix. In its place we are now offering “Tiesto’s Club Life Radio” an electronic dance music channel. The upbeat, party music that was heard on Party Mega Mix can now be found on many SiriusXM channels including Hits 1, 20 On 20, 80s on 8, and 90s on 9.


    The party never ends with SiriusXM’s Party Mega Mix, an upbeat party soundtrack from artists like The Black Eyed Peas, B-52’s, Katy Perry, Run DMC, Usher, and more.

    To SiriusXM: Never say Never!

    I guess Party Mega Mix is the "Super Shuffle" of the streaming world.

    Yep, before the channel was just titled "Yoga".

    Geez! I thought Party Mega Mix was the flagship music channel on 2.0. What I liked was the mixing of old stuff (Rapsberries, Badfinger) with the newer stuff. I guess there isn't enough room on the 2.0 band for Party Mega Mix and this Tiesto's.

    SIRIUSaboutXM DRC Special Contributor

    And yet, 4 channels online are empty right now: Limited Engagements 2,3 & 4(since Holiday channels ended) and Simon & Garfunkel( ended)

    I liked this channel, too- a nice mix of pop, rock and country from every decade. Very similar to Beach Party Radio
