Netflix will next week launch a radio station on Sirius XM.
The 24/7 channel, branded Netflix Is a Joke Radio, will be broadcast on the US satellite radio network’s channel 93 from April 15th. It marks the first time the service has teamed with another media company to widen its net.
The new channel will feature the works of a number comedians who have reorded stand-up specials for Netflix including Adam Sandler, Amy Schumer, Azis Ansari, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman and more. It will also feature comedy from up-and-coming comedians and segments from future stand-up specials, as well as an original daily show with comedians and guests discussing topical news.
