Ford will be the first automaker to have in-vehicle access to the SiriusXM Internet Radio App in Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC AppLink. This will let Ford owners enjoy access to the MySXM and SiriusXM On Demand features of SiriusXM Internet Radio alongside satellite radio by using voice commands, steering wheel or radio controls.
Once SiriusXM Internet Radio subscribers download the latest version of the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for their compatible iPhone or Android smartphone, they can connect to SYNC AppLink for safer in-vehicle control of MySXM and On Demand.
The SiriusXM Internet Radio App gives subscribers easy in-vehicle access to MySXM, the new feature that let’s listeners personalize many SiriusXM commercial-free music and select comedy channels for a more personal listening experience. Plus the SiriusXM Internet Radio App will give subscribers access to SiriusXM On Demand, allowing listeners to choose their favorite episodes from a catalog of more than 300 shows and over 3,000 hours of content to listen in their vehicles, whenever they want.
“We are excited that Ford sees the advantage of being the first automaker to give its customers easy, safe access to our unparalleled audio entertainment through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App and satellite radio in the connected car.,” said Jim Meyer, Chief Executive Officer, SiriusXM.
The SiriusXM Internet Radio App can be used in more than one million Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC AppLink.
