Satellite radio provider SiriusXM is upping its game with 360L, a new audio platform that focuses heavily on streaming content. The feature that first debuted on the 2019 Ram 1500 is now making its way to a variety of vehicles from many different automakers, and severs SiriusXM’s curated music channels from exclusive delivery via satellite signals. Keep reading to learn more about SiriusXM with 360L, and how much you can expect to pay.
What Does Sirius XM with 360L Come With?
The new SiriusXM 360L audio platform gives listeners access to more channels, including exclusive streaming channels. In fact, there are more than 10,000 hours of recorded on-demand content available, delivered via the same kind of internet data connection used by smartphones and such.
Enhanced personalization is another key component of the new tech. It provides curated audio recommendations based on your listening history and selected favorites. You can even set up individual listener profiles for different users. With a new “related” button, it’s easy to find content similar to what you already like. If you’re a sports fan, for example, you can find games for all your favorite teams in one place with the new Live Sports category.

How much is SiriusXM per month?
Automakers are currently offering free trials to SiriusXM All Access with the vehicle purchase, as they’ve long offered for SiriusXM’s satellite radio services. Some of these trials last for three months, and some are for a full year. If the customer decides to continue service after the trial period, current rates will apply. Right now, All Access is priced at $21.99 per month, or $263.88 per year. The more limited Select package costs $16.99 per month, or $203.88 per year—pricier than most internet- and app-based streaming services, such as Spotify and Pandora, though not by much.
