Today, Sirius XM Radio issued a press release announcing the launch of its SiriusXM Internet Radio App on Google TV later this summer.  The app, which will be available as a free download from Google Play, will demo later this afternoon at Google I/O in San Francisco.

Current and new Sirius subscribers will have access to SiriusXM’s commercial-free music, sports, live news, comedy, talk and entertainment channels. 

This will be the first time any SiriusXM programming will be available on any television. 

Here’s a look at the key features of the app:

  • Start Now: allowing subscribers up to five hours of previously broadcast materials on many channels.  
  • Tune Start: a program that will start a song from the beginning when turning on any music channel 
  • The ability to pause, resume, fast forward and rewind live programming on many channels.  
  • Show Finder: essentially a television guide that allows users to set reminder alerts for favourite shows. 
  • The ability to organise favourite channels so you can access them all on one screen.
