    So I have been on a "roll" lately contacting companies with large and popular apps for other devices (or web services) to see if they have plans for WP8 (or W8 in general).

    I emailed SiriusXM support and I got what seemed to be a pretty cut / paste reply. However they do mention that support is being worked on, though they just say "for your smartphone and portable media player" so perhaps that is cut and paste or perhaps they refuse to say lumia 920 and surface RT... but no mention of windows 8 is made.. hopefully they didn't just give me something saying that they are working on it when they really aren't so i'll take it as good news.

    My Message in the question form:
    Will there be a SiriusXM app for the windows phone 8 platform? I know this is available on all of the other phone systems (even blackberry). I would very much love to use the app on my new Lumia 920.

    I would also like to extend the question if possible to include windows 8 in general, as well as the RT tablets for windows 8. I also have a surface RT tablet I would love to use my Sirius XM subscription with. I am aware that there is a web interface for this, however I am hoping that an app would become available as that is a better solution I believe.
    The reply:

    I would say I will believe it when I see it. I would love the Sirius app on WP8.


    ...that email they sent you was a generic email in my eyes.

    I sent a similar inquiry about the Lumia 920 back in early November, and got the following, similar response. Yours sounds a bit more optimistic, so maybe there is some progress being made. I hope so...

    I hope the official SiriusXM streaming app is coming soon to Windows Phone. Ever since the legacy WMA stream was taken down, the 3rd party apps no longer work and no longer appear in the WP store.

    Maybe that, in itself, is a good sign.

    The best route to go is to go to the Facebook page OR the website and do the chat with Listener Care. Facebook would get better response I think. Just bug them about getting an app for WP8. Basically, the more popular the idea is, the faster it gets done.

    I work for the company as an LCR, I have to disclose that this post does not reflect the views and opinion of SiriusXM and is only my personal opinion.

    The email is too generic and doesn't answer your question. It is simply a broad automated respond some ***** picked from a list on his screen. In other words, the support company they hire to handle their support needs has no clue on what sirius is developing unless sirius tells THEM (in which case what usually happens...is that doesnt happen too often).

    So you think they are talking about your device but they aren't . They are simply talking about devices in general. They didn't say anything about Windows devices...they just said "we are hard at work trying to figure out new ones to bring our product to media devices around the world". That doesn't answer anything....doesn't tell you what the chance of it happening is.....or how long it will be.......or if they even have the slightest interest in choosing WP as a platform they want to develop for. They simply gave you a response hoping your eyes will tell you what you want to hear so they don't have to really deal with the question.

    Corporate bull...that's all :(

    I promote the idea of sirius on EVERYTNING. I'm a share holding so I'm pro pro pro pro the success of it. They need to focus a little harder on their customer service.

    I visited my father this weekend and he had to call them because he doesn't even know what his login is for online radio. He of course was connected to Mr. Habbibi in India. So your not talking to Sirius directly when you email them.


    Vote for the app to be considered here:

    I just live chatted with someone in Sirius XM support and was told that they have no plans to release an app for Windows Phone 8 at all. Sucks! I know. 😞

    Here is the email I got two weeks ago:

    Josh,

    Thank you for reaching out to us via Social Media. I have been informed that an app is in development for the Windows phone. I do not have a time frame. There will be public notification when it is available.

    It's about time. When apps like this do not boil up to the top quickly it stops the platform from growing or softens the subscriber-ship from the service. Or both. Anyway your dice it the WinPhone8 leadership must be sleeping at the wheel. And I'm a big WinPhone evangelist.

    My Lumia 928 should be arriving on Wednesday to replace my Driod Bionic. I'm going to keep the Bionic to download shows off SXM over WiFi and play them until the WP8 app is out. Has anyone heard any updates or confirmed that they are actually working it as Stephen Campbell claims.

    I hope what Clement wrote is true. I have been waiting for the Sirius app since I bought my 920.

    I wouldn't count on a Windows Phone 8 app anytime soon. I just contacted them and they said "We are currently in development of a Windows 8 app, but no time has been given on when it will be available." Then when I asked them about Windows Phone they said, "We currently do not have any plans for Windows Mobile"

    Let's hope so. In the meantime I will keep harassing SiriusXM on Twitter and other social media.

    Please create a Windows 8 app, especially for desktop RT. If you create this app I will add Internet radio to my subscription instantly!
