Alexa, Play SiriusXM Hits 1...

One thing I wished they'd do:

Release an app to play SiriusXM on Amazon's Echo.

It makes a lot of sense for getting their music into the home.

Brad - that makes too much sense, therefore, SXM won't do it.

Besides - you'd have to pay for an additional sub, knowing SXM.

They'd say something like, "Your internet account is only for internet listening on computers and mobile devices. Amazon's Echo is different so there'll be an extra fee."

And while we're at it, how about an Apple TV app?

I'd prefer them to get a working SiriusXM before these add ons.

Their Android app is awful and unreliable. When going in and out of cell coverage, it stops playing downloaded shows, then when in no coverage it gives the regular incorrect time error.

It is junk.

Can it be sent via bluetooth from a portable device to any of these speakers that have a bluetooth capability?

This space for rent!

Subscribers to All Access, SiriusXM's most extensive offering, can ask Alexa to play every MLB® and NBA game, every NASCAR® race, plus NHL® games, PGA TOUR® events and live college sports, as well as news, analysis and opinions from more than a dozen dedicated sports talk channels. With the Major League Baseball season in full swing, fans can tune in to hear their favorite team's radio voices anywhere at home with their Alexa devices, whether they're preparing a meal in the kitchen, working at their desk, or entertaining guests on the deck.
SiriusXM offers exclusive artist branded music channels from The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, Garth Brooks, Tom Petty, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Pitbull, and many more. It offers curated music channels across decades and representing multiple music genres that span rock, pop, country, electronic dance, jazz, and more. Subscribers with Alexa can also access concept-based channels curated by SiriusXM's acclaimed programming team, such as Road Trip Radio, Yacht Rock Radio, SiriusXM Comes Alive, and Red, White & Booze.
"We are delighted that customers can now enjoy SiriusXM's exclusive shows, live sports, music, and news through Alexa," said Steve Rabuchin, VP Amazon Alexa. "Music, news, and sports are already some of the most popular categories of content on Alexa, and SiriusXM brings even more choices to customers. People with an Alexa device and a SiriusXM trial or paid subscription can simply enable the SiriusXM skill for Amazon Alexa, link their accounts and start listening at home or on-the-go with Alexa."
"Alexa is a leading voice service today by far and for good reason: The ease of use through the convenience of voice control with Alexa. We are thrilled to now deliver to Alexa our critically acclaimed, compelling and exclusive programming that spans all music genres, live sports, talk, live news, and comedy," said Jim Cady, SiriusXM's Executive Vice President of Products, Operations & Connected Vehicle. "Our millions of subscribers can get SiriusXM's great programming outside of the car and wherever Alexa devices can be found. It's as simple as asking Alexa to play SiriusXM."
SiriusXM content available on Amazon Alexa will mirror what is available to that subscriber streaming on the SiriusXM app, based on their subscription. Access to certain content, including MLB and NASCAR programming, requires an authenticated "SiriusXM All Access" subscription. For more info on what channels are available on various SiriusXM subscriptions, go to www.SiriusXM.com/subscriptions.
