Besides the usual suspects like XM Radio, SiriusXM also offers video content in the form of a YouTube Music Show. This show, which will premiere on the SiriusXM Hits 1 channel on July 11, features a curated selection of YouTube music videos. In addition to the videos themselves, the station will host a weekly show highlighting the best YouTube artists. You can tune in for the inaugural episode to hear Jenna Marbles talk about the best of the YouTube music world.
For those looking for something a little more hands on, SiriusXM has you covered with the "Sirius XM Video" service, a subscription plan that provides exclusive access to in-studio and studio performance videos and interviews with some of the most popular artists in music. Those interested can sign up for a free trial. If you are already a subscriber, you may be able to access the video service for no extra charge. However, you will need to activate your radio and purchase a SiriusXM subscription to get the most out of it.
One of the most interesting offerings is the new "Sirius XM YouTube Music Show." In this weekly show, you can listen to a curated selection of YouTube music videos, courtesy of Jenna Marbles and her 13 million subscribers. Other video offerings include live concerts and interviews with music icons. Those with Live Nation subscriptions can watch over 250 videos, including a plethora of musical performances.
Unlike most media companies, SiriusXM is embracing the video craze. In fact, this is one of the reasons why the station is doubling down on its video offerings. With the help of some high-tech wizardry, you can see all of the new shows in full-screen. Moreover, there"s also a "smart" phone app that allows you to enjoy these video services directly from your smartphone. While the Sirius XM app isn"t quite as robust as other video streaming apps, it should be good enough to keep you entertained.
Another gimmick SiriusXM has been experimenting with is the "Howard Stern Video." Like all the other offerings, you can find it on the company"s website, in your car, or via the SiriusXM mobile app. While it"s not as exciting as the other offerings, it does give you a glimpse of Howard Stern"s multi-decade library of audio and video. As a bonus, it also features the best-in-class celebrity interviews.
In the same vein, the company has also rolled out the "Sirius XM Video Magic," a new video channel dedicated to the best in hip-hop, R&B and rock. As part of the package, you"ll be able to enjoy a variety of videos featuring performances from Lady Antebellum, BTS and KISS. There are a handful of other noteworthy perks as well, including an impressive list of hosts and the ability to win sweepstakes prizes.
