SiriusXM settles class action

August 14, 2019

Pay-radio operator SiriusXM was in trouble because of alleged breaches of the US Federal ‘Telephone Consumer Protection Act’. It meant potential breaches of Federal telemarketing rules and where consumers had pre-registered for ‘Do Not Call’ notifications, either nationally or on the company’s own lists.

SiriusXM, despite initially firmly denying any wrong-doing, has now reached a settlement with agents for the claimants. Consumers who received at least two telemarketing calls between October 16th 2013 and April 26th 2019 might qualify for a settlement from SiriusXM.

SiriusXM, to claimants who qualify, is offering a 3-month free access to its top-tier service of 150+ channels. They have also set aside $25 million which will be distributed to Class Action members who provide valid claim forms and proof of the calls.

The settlement from SiriusXM was agreed after they stated that the given settlement does not mean that violation of any law happened or Sirius XM did anything wrong.
