The SiriusXM pay-radio subscriber numbers just keep on growing. During Q1 it added a net 465,000 new subs to take its overall total above 30 million (30.1m). The 30 million is a record high for the broadcaster. Their full results will be published on April 28th.

“SiriusXM has grown from a pioneering startup (founded only in 1990) to a media powerhouse in less than fifteen years of service by providing listeners with the best audio entertainment available,” said Jim Meyer, CEO, SiriusXM.

Liberty Media owns 40 per cent of the business.

“Our exclusive, unmatched content and ease of use has led us to this important subscriber milestone. I’d like to thank our dedicated employees, our valuable content creators and brands, our automotive distributors, and most of all our paying subscribers for their contribution to our success,” added Meyer.

“We believe there is more success to come because of our relentless search for new and exciting content, our intense focus on subscriber satisfaction, and our significant investments in next-generation services and platforms,” said Meyer.
