The new “premium” (their word) iPhone app from Sirius XM will cost $2.99 a month for customers who aren’t already subscribers. It also doesn’t include Howard Stern, MLB Play-by-Play, NFL Play-by-Play and Sirius Nascar Radio. Sirius blames licensing issues for most of the missing content, but not for the absence of Howard Stern, about which it won’t comment.
AllThingsD points out, “There are far too many other ways to listen free music on the iPhone that don’t require a monthly subscription feeñPandora, for example. Or Last.fm. And NormSoft’s Pocket Tunes app has been streaming Stern for months now.”
