BBC Radio 1 removed from SiriusXM

BBC Radio 1 has been removed from the American Satellite Radio platform SIRIUS XM.

The station has been re-broadcast across the States since 2005 but the agreement between BBC Worldwide and SIRIUS has now come to an end, has been told.

Both sides are now in talks to bring the station back to an American audience, but no details have yet emerged.

A Facebook group to “Get BBC Radio 1 Back on Sirius XM” has been created and is growing by the minute. It now has over one thousand likes.

Subscribers in the group are threatening to cancel their subscription because of the news, which costs upwards of $12.95 (£8) per month.

The BBC told “This agreement has now unfortunately come to an end and BBC Worldwide are in current discussions with the satellite radio station to find ways to continue to bring popular music channel, BBC Radio 1, to the US audience. We will keep you posted.”

SIRIUS XM is home of hundreds of commercial free music and programming, including the Howard Stern Show.
