According to a recent post on Reddit, SiriusXM is developing a Windows 10 app scheduled to arrive sometime in 2016. In an email sent to Reddit user, proneto911, a SiriusXM representative confirms the development of a Windows 10 Universal app:
“Yes, we are currently developing a SiriusXM Streaming app to support Windows 10. The app will be available in 2016 for Windows 10 smartphones, tablets, and computers.”
Howard Stern is a big draw for many SiriusXM customers and the self-proclaimed “King of All Media” recently extended his 12 year contract with Sirius to continue The Howard Stern Show for another 5 years. Boasting over 29 million subscribers, Sirius XM has over 150 channels streaming music, sports talk, and other ad-free content.
Although there are browser-based streaming options, SiriusXM previously did not provide an app for Windows Phone 8.1. This will be a first SiriusXM app for the Windows ecosystem as SiriusXM currently only offers a streaming app for Android and iOS. Microsoft did say that Windows 10 apps will be gaining more traction, but there is still a long way to go.
