SiriusXM To Broadcast All Manchester United EPL Games On U.S. Radio

SiriusXM (SIRI) today announced an agreement to broadcast all Premier League games featuring Manchester United via its radio, online and web apps. The first Manchester United match available to SiriusXM subscribers kicks off on January 4, 2011 when the Red Devils play home against Stoke City on Sirius channel 113 and XM channel 244 beginning at 3pm ET.

In addition to the official Manchester United radio commentary of all United matches in the Premier League, SiriusXM also broadcasts all Chelsea matches (Wednesday’s Wolverhampton versus Chelsea match will air on Sirius 113 and XM 244) plus select games from Arsenal, Everton and other clubs. Premier League matches will air on Sirius channels 125 and 113 and XM channels 241 and 244.

SiriusXM also features The Football Show, a daily talk program hosted by Giorgio Chinaglia and Charlie Stillitano that broadcasts every weekday morning (7-9am ET on Sirius channel 125 and XM channel 241).

“Manchester United is delighted to announce this arrangement with SiriusXM,” said Manchester United Chief Executive David Gill.  “This agreement demonstrates the enduring strength of the Club internationally. We are very proud to have SiriusXM as our first satellite radio broadcaster in the US. This is an exciting arrangement as we know how passionate our fans are in the United States and now they can catch all the match action live on Sirius and XM.”

    I don’t do the satellite radio thing, but hopefully this is a harbinger of TV deals that are team-exclusive. I’d sign up for a Spurs online stream package in a second, and I’m sure many fans who rely on illegal streams (generating no money for EPL) would do the same for their team.

      Priyavrat, this is only for listeners in the United States, sorry. Each country has different companies bidding on the different types of rights (TV, internet, radio, etc).

      Cheers,

    Is the Football Show available with the Sirius/XM Android app? Will this United coverage be available with the app as well?

      Mike, according to the press release, it will, but I’m still searching for it on the Sirius-XM iPhone app. Hopefully I’ll see it today for the United game and will be able to report back.

        I logged in to the Sirius-XM iPhone app but I don’t see the radio commentary of the Man United game listed on there. Anyone else have any luck?

        Cheers,

    at the end of this post, you linked to a “product review” from last summer. there were two comments there asking about the decline in quality of sirius/xm’s soccer coverage over the last year or so, but there was no follow-up.

    they haven’t had champions league games in ages, but only recently removed the CL logo from their pitifully-maintained soccer page.

    does anyone know why things have devolved so badly with sirius/xm’s EPL (and other soccer) coverage?

    also gaffer: did you get to keep that radio?

      CR, I wasn’t able to get the answers to those questions until now, so I’ll add the comments to the World Cup Buzz thread there. Yes, I got to keep the radio.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer
