At SiriusXM we love the talented people that create the music we play. The U.S Music Royalty Fee is used to fund royalty payments to the music industry, which includes the writers and artists you hear on SiriusXM.

You expect SiriusXM® to provide the best in audio entertainment and in the past several years, we’ve focused on expanding our programming to deliver even more A-list talent, variety and channels you won’t hear anywhere else. Our subscription packages offer more and better value to our listeners today than ever before, but in order to keep delivering the best possible experience there will be a monthly rate adjustment. Rest assured that even though this is the first monthly rate change for the All Access and Mostly Music packages since first offered in 2011 and 2008, respectively, this decision comes only after thorough deliberation.

We understand you listen to SiriusXM for the variety of premium content available – giving you an incredible value with commercial-free music, plus sports, news, comedy, talk, entertainment and more. That’s why we stay focused on delivering outstanding programming that gets better and more exciting every day. Recent additions to our lineup include Ellen DeGeneres, Stephen A. Smith, Hoda Kotb, Jenny McCarthy, Andy Cohen, Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, NBC Nightly News and Meet the Press. Plus we launched new shows on PGA TOUR® Radio and new channels including Pitbull’s Globalization Channel, Bleacher Report Radio, The YouTube 15 and SiriusXM Insight.

Only SiriusXM delivers unique, exclusive programming you can’t hear anywhere else – the Foo Fighters New York City concert, Barbra Streisand’s exclusive channel, AC/DC Radio, Skrillex’s private concert and more. Our Town Hall series lets listeners like you ask questions to iconic musicians and celebrities like Carlos Santana, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Chris Rock, and legendary golfer Gary Player.

And the best is yet to come. We are building an exciting future that includes even more exclusive subscriber benefits and greater flexibility in the way you can listen to SiriusXM. Be sure to take advantage of all the benefits available to you to get the most from SiriusXM, including special invitations and complimentary tickets to exclusive performances and sporting events near you.

On behalf of everyone at SiriusXM, thank you for your loyalty, and for being a SiriusXM listener.
