SiriusXM is coming for the milllenials Image: marcus ingram/Getty Images for SiriusXM By Heather Dockray2019-04-20 17:49:19 UTC
If you’re one of the millions of people in America who don’t own a car and have to rely on terrible public transportation (points to self), SiriusXM is out-of-reach.
Recently, however, the company released a new plan called SiriusEssential that would give people access to SiriusXM on mobile or for listening at home. At just $8 a month, the plan gives people access to over 200 channels.
Unfortunately for some listeners, the plan will not include premium channels including the NBA, the NHL, the NCAA, and Howard Stern. Listeners who want access to those channels would have to sign up for their Premium Subscription plan, which goes for $13 a month.
Still, it’s well-priced, especially for millennials, many of whom don’t have cars and who turn to alternative streaming services on Spotify or Pandora for their music needs.
Listen. We all know what makes SiriusXM good — their 24/7 Dave Matthews Band Channel. All DMB, all the time. I would purchase a car solely for the opportunity to jam so damn hard to “Ants Marching” on SiriusXM at any hour of the day.
