Sirius XM merger completed

By on

Sirius has said that it has finished its purchase of its rival XM Satellite Radio to form a new company that competes with traditional FM radio and digital audio players like the iPod – after the FCC approved the deal, which was announced in February last year.

The new company will now be known as Sirius XM Radio, and will have a total of 18.5 million subscribers; and will now boast its combined roster of exclusive programming – like Howard Stern, Oprah Winfrey and exclusive sports broadcasts, news and music.

Its corporate headquarters will be in New York, while XM Satellite will remain in Washington.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
