Last month BBOS got some reaction from you all on how you may want to try out the then developing BlackBerry application for Sirius/XM radio. Of course we got your feedback and was surprised to see that most preferred the "FREE" applications. Imagine that.
At any rate and with all kidding aside, Sirius XM Radio Inc. released their Sirius XM BlackBerry App and is advertising it as mobile extension of the subscriber's paid premium online service. Initially we get to receive a 7 day free trial offer in which the user will need to sign up for the service. Just a few credentials to submit then the application configures the download. Once configured, you are able to choose from a list of categories including Rock, Jazz/Blues, Talk Radio and Sports. Many more that I could list.
Options include channel details, autoplay at startup and subscription channels just to name a few.
Let's talk cost. As I said earlier this is an "extension" with that being the key word, of the subscriber's paid premium online service or internet service. What that means is to subscribe to the internet service for $12.95 per month. Then in order to utilize the mobile version just throw in an additional $2.99 a month.
Don't shoot me...I'm just the messenger.
The Sirius XM BlackBerry application will be available on the following handsets:
- BlackBerry Storm 1 (Series 9530)
- BlackBerry Storm 2 (Series 9550)
- BlackBerry Bold (Series 9000, 9700)
- BlackBerry Tour (Series 9630)
- BlackBerry Curve (Series 8900, 8520, 8530)
