Sirius XM iPhone app released: No Howard Stern, MLB or NFL; Opie and Anthony make the cut


Big news today, Sirius XM fans. The Sirius XM iPhone app has been released, and is available to download right now. The app itself is free, but you’ll need to be a Sirius XM subscriber to use it. Obviously.

Let’s get the bad news out of the way: there’s no Howard Stern on the app. There’s also no MLB and NFL. So if you were looking forward to using your fancy new iPhone 3G S to listen to Howard Stern, well, tough luck.

The good news: there’s plenty of other fine content to listen to. There’s Opie & Anthony and Ron & Fez from channel 202; Oprah; CNN and Fox News; and all that music, music that you can later buy from iTunes if you so desire.

As you may well know, I’m not an iPhone owner, nor do I have an iPod touch, so I can’t try it out myself.

Now, the Howard Stern fans will pan the app—“this sucks,” etc.—but if you can move past that you might just find what looks to be a neat little app.

Here’s a video of the app in action. Let me know what you think. And I do mean “me,” since I’m the only Sirius XM fan ’round here.
