About XM Radio
The advent of satellite radio has helped create an all-new radio experience for avid listeners. Sirius XM, the company behind XM radio, operates satellite radio with hundreds of channels including channels for talk radio, sports listening, and many genres of music. Many cars come equipped with XM Radio service, and the commercial-free radio experience has only increased in popularity. Satellite radio officially started in 2001, and the two largest companies, XM Radio and Sirius Satellite, merged to become one powerhouse radio corporation called XM Satellite Radio. XM Radio is a great option for listeners that only like listening to a particular type of music or prefer hearing news only stations. XM Radio is also a great way to discover new artists you might like. You cannot only receive XM Radio in your car, but in your home too, through your computer or home theatre system. If you like listening to music from the 70s, then you can program your XM Radio to only play oldies, or listen to all the latest pop or country tunes. All metal stations are a hit with fans of hard rock music, with stations like Liquid Metal and Octane to pick from. Whether you like coffee house style jazz or opera music, there is an XM Radio station for you. People love the variety when it comes to talk radio, news, sports, and even comedy stations on their XM Radios, and subscriptions are affordable and offer listeners a variety of different options; there is even an Oprah radio station for fans of the popular American talk show host.
