Comcast customers can now access the SiriusXM app on their Xfinity Flex streaming devices and XClass TVs, as well as through the Xfinity X1 Hub for live TV. You can call up the app by saying “SiriusXM” on your voice remote or by searching for it in your device’s list of apps.

The Platinum tier includes more than 425 channels, including 330 ad-free music, two exclusive Howard Stern channels, and stations for podcasts.
