You can listen to Stern and hundreds of other talk and music channels through the SiriusXM app and web player.

While many subscribers listen to SiriusXM channels when they're in their cars, fewer folks are on the roads right now because of stay-at-home measures to limit the spread of COVID-19. SiriusXM is joining a wide range of platforms that are offering free access to at least some of their services at the minute, giving you more options for things to do while you're staying home.
