Frequently Asked Questions
Why does SiriusXM stop after a while when you’ve been listening online or on the app?
We do this so we’re not streaming to computers or mobile devices that have no listeners—and so that folks who are listening can enjoy optimum performance. If you receive a pop up notice asking if you’re still listening, just select “Keep Listening” and audio will resume. If you don’t click through, the player will shut down within 5 minutes of the alert.
Can I listen to SiriusXM without a radio?
Absolutely. SiriusXM offers streaming-only subscriptions that let you listen on computers, tablets, phones, and other enabled at-home devices. No radio required.
