SiriusXM Buddy – for windows phone 7

SiriusXM Buddy is a premium client application for windows phone 7 to listen to sirius/xm satellite radio using your windows phone. It built specifically thinking about windows phone metro design and I am sure you will like it as much as I enjoyed building it.

Some of the features are –

  1. Full channel list with details like current song, album, artist
  2. Detailed info including album coverart & detailed program info.
  3. Ability to mark channels to favorite list for easy browing.
  4. Dynamic program info gets updated every 30 secs for an upto date details.
  5. Nice home page view of your currently playing channels.
  6. Not but least, if you don’t have a subscription, a direct link for your 7 day trial.

The application will be available on marketplace soon and I am hoping to price it for $1.99. A free/trail version will be available as well with full functionality but will be showing ads.

    I just purchased your app based on what you said the app would do. However it does display what is currently playing or any album art. I would like to know why this is. At this point I am disappointed and would like a solution.

    August 10, 2011 at 8:38 am

    • I am assuming you meant that it doesn’t display album art or other information. I will display but the first time it takes few seconds to download all the information and will refresh every 30 secs. Please give the app few minutes and see if it display it correctly. If it doesn’t work, feel free to email me directly @ ashterisk@live.com. Thanks.

        I let the app run for 5 minutes but no info came through or updated. I then uninstalled and reinstalled the app and now the info downloads.

        Since I can now see what’s on I tried Jam On channel 29 and it comes back with “Media Playback failed. Invalid URL: The URL scheme is not valid.”
        This also happened with Simon & Garfunkel channel 810, channel 812, channel 813, and Pearl Jam Radio channel 22 so far.

        August 10, 2011 at 4:58 pm

      • i bought the app last night and worked like a charm! today, everytime i go to start the app, it takes me to the login page and the second i try to enter the password (or touch the screen anywhere) it goes back to the list of apps in my phone? help, what should i do??

        August 19, 2011 at 4:23 pm

      • can you uninstall and reinstall again? Seems like something is corrupted.

        August 19, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    The two main channels I wanted this for are The Virus and the PGA Tour Network. Both return an error saying “Media playback failed: Invalid URI: The URI scheme is not valid.”

    It seems like this problem is affecting a number of 3rd party Sirius/XM apps for both WP7 and Windows XP/Vista/7. It all started when they rearranged the channels back in May. Do you have any way of overcoming this? If so, I’ll happily pay for the app.

    Also, will SiriusXM Buddy work with a wireless bluetooth headset?

    August 10, 2011 at 9:21 am

    • SiriusXM Buddy dynamically loads the channel list and will cache it until the user refresh it. So it should be much better in handling the channel lineup.
      Inspite of that, there are few channels which doesn’t work as most of the 3rd party apps use previous windows media streaming server and it seems these channels are not available there.

      This was my first release so I wanted to bring it to parity. My next steps would be to find a better mechanism where you can get all the channels.

      I haven’t tested with wireless bluetooth but it does work in my car bluetooth pairing.

        I’ve installed and reinstalled. I can’t log in because it keeps jumping back to the home screen. None of the entertainment and pop channels broadcast. I tried the trial version twice and a purchased the upgrade. I’m using an xm subscription before the merger that worked perfectly with BlackBerry.

        November 28, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    • I just tested these 2 channels and they both work fine. I am using the siriusxm 7 day free trial. Both “The Virus” and “The PGA Tour Network” play perfectly for me.

      August 10, 2011 at 4:15 pm

      • Justin

        Interesting, I still can’t. Is your account originally a Sirius account, an XM account, or was your subscription purchased after the merger? I’ve read that even though you’d think there isnt a difference, there actually is. I don’t know, it’s frustrating (not your app, talking about Sirius/XMs ability to screw stuff up).

        Oh, and thanks big time for the quick reply!!

        August 16, 2011 at 10:04 am

      • I am using a subscription after the merger. Is your account before the merger and is it sirius or xm? as I mentioned in my app, I have less confidence on old XM accounts. Unfortuently, I have not way of testing it and that’s the main problem.

        August 16, 2011 at 10:53 am

      • tony

        This app doesn’t work for me or anyone else who has downloaded it for free or paid or with the xm membership or with the sirius membership. It just plain and simply doesn’t work and is a ripoff. SiriusXM says there is no app for the Windows Phone.

        December 9, 2011 at 7:09 pm

      • This app is not from siriusxm, its a third party app as mentioned in the desciption of the app on marketplace. Here is the link to the marketplace (read the bottom part of disclaimer).
        http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/73677583-5663-45be-b375-3fe36e73b50b

        Also, this app does work and its working for many people. Also, there is trial support available which mean anybody can try it out before purchasing. If you feel like you are ripped off, I am sure marketplace can help you get your refund.

      Why does this not work with a majority if channels on my xm account, I feel ripped off

      November 27, 2011 at 6:59 am

      • sorry, that’s the limiation of most of the siriusxm app as there is no supported apis. I have a trial version and free version in the hope that people will try it before purchasing

        November 27, 2011 at 11:28 pm

      • tony

        The app for BlackBerry and Android phones work perfectily. SiriusXM Buddy is a ripoff. It doesn’t work and SiriusXM says there is no app for the Windows Phone. So Windows Phone should be informed that this is a bogus, non-functional app and so should SiriusXM.

    Mine is originally a XM account, pre-merger. Would an XM account help you to test and diagnose it? If so, I can contact you via email or something if you want. I’d gladly donate money (aside from the full price of the app) to get this working. Thanks again.

    Not sure how to uninstall an app on the windows 7 phone. Also if I re-install it, will I have to pay for it again??

    August 19, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    • You can uninstall by press and hold on application icon in your application list. You will not be charged twice when you install again.
      Thanks.

    August 24, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    • This should only happen for few channels depending on your account. Do you have Sirius or XM account?

        Mine is working great. Yes, there are some stations that has the err msg … Media play back fails .. Like fox news channel not working, but CNN and MSNBC working…. I like to be able to listen to 3 of them…. If u can fix it that would be super. all in all, to me I like ur app and thank you for ur product (considering sirius/xm itself doesn’t bother to have an app for windowsphone!)

        January 21, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Love the app, but almost all of the channels I listen to do not work. I keep getting the playback error. My account is less than a month old. It’s the XM Premier. Alt Nation, Fantasy Radio, NFL Radio and a few others are among the ones I have noticed that do not work. Is there a fix for this?

    Also, I”m using the HTC Trophy. Go ahead and email me the answer, as I do not know when I will visit this site again.

        November 28, 2011 at 3:49 pm

      • why do you need flash on windows phone? Flash is not supported on windows phoen and not required by this app.
        You need to go to PC and login to https://www.siriusxm.com/player/ and see if you can login. If you can’t that means your accout doesn’t support webstreaming that is required by the app.

    i get the channel listing but all channels give the error “Media Playback Failed: Channel may not be available on Phone” error. I have an xm account for my car, subscribed to the 30 trial for internet access, it seems to connect ok & certainly gives me the station listings but none of them will actually play. i think i checked xm when i ran the app the first time. i don’t see any options/settings except “Auto play on start.” Help please. thanks.

    September 4, 2011 at 8:13 am

    • Please logoff and try with unchecking xm. i believe your account is new and thus doesn’t require xm option.

      September 4, 2011 at 8:58 am

    yea. it worked. i missed noticing the logoff option. thanks.

    September 4, 2011 at 9:36 am

    app is working ok except – the currently playing listings are entirely wrong.
    suggestion for a future version – once you select a channel and it starts playing, it is not obvious (without listening of course) which channel you are listening to

    September 29, 2011 at 3:33 am

    • The update is submitted and should be available soon unless they reject and I need to fix something. Thanks.

      September 29, 2011 at 7:44 am

  32. Joe

    Love the app, but many of the channels still do not work. Ones that I really would like to listen to at work are the NFL Channel and the Fantasy Sports channel. I am a new XM subscriber (signed up in July) and I have the XM option selected, so that isn’t the problem. One thing I did notice is that you have the fantasy channel listed as 210, when it is channel 87 for XM. Could that be making a lot of the channels not work? Please, email me back.

    Thanks,

    September 29, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    • Thanks, I will look into this. Can you send me the list of XM channels and their corresponding channel id or let me know where can I find it?

      September 29, 2011 at 5:11 pm

      • Joe

        http://www.siriusxm.com/channellineup#

        Go there and when it asks which service, select “XM” and then choose “XM Premier” for the package and it should give you a list of all the channels.

        By the way, the new Mango update for the app looks great 🙂

    I am also having problems getting channels 29, 810, 812, 813, and 22 to work. I get the following error: “Media Playback Failed: Channel may not be available on Phone” whenever I attempt to launch these channels. I am currently on a trial of the app and Sirius while I am testing out this application. My phone is an HTC Arrive. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app but the behavior does not change. Any thoughts on what I need to do to get these channels towork?

    Thanks!

    September 29, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    • Not every channel works as there are no published apis and the application uses an old system to get the streaming music.

  41. unndunn

    Just wanted to drop a note saying that this app rules. Makes my workday pass by so much faster. Works nearly flawlessly on my AT&T Samsung Focus running Mango.

    Perhaps the only criticism I could level at this app is that it doesn’t show artist/album data in the media control window during background playback. But I don’t even know if that is possible with the current background audio implementation in Windows Phone, so this criticism is half-hearted at best.

    Bravo, kind sir ashterisk. 🙂

    • You need to have a proper subscription with SiriusXM to use this app. The free trial account was also with SiriusXM now that’s expired, you need to get a new one (with web streaming).

  44. Not sure if there’s anything you can do about it but playback stops when interrupted by alarm or if i unplug the headset. After that the play button no longer works and says error please start the program. I figured out that if i touch the message it launches the application and i’m able to restart playback. Would be nice to have an option for it to continue playback when the headset is unplugged without interruption.

    October 26, 2011 at 5:57 am

    No one on this blog is having success with this app. It should be pulled from the Marketplace.

    December 9, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    • I am having plenty of success with this app. It is my go-to app for music while walking, driving… just about anywhere, really. It is almost single-handedly responsible for me running over my 2GB data cap last month.

      It’s finicky when running in the background, but it works well enough for me.

    The trial version worked beautifully. I decided to renew my subscription for my car and internet. I paid for your app. Now when I try to listen to shows like Oprah I get a message that tells me it might not be available for my phone. It worked great during the trial. I can listen to it on my PC on the internet. I have called SIriusXM several times. I have the correct subscription. Why can’t I listen to all the stations now?

    December 13, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    • tony

      I was never able to get the Oprah station or many other stations that I can get on my Blackberry or online. This app has so many problems!!

    Sirius just released an update to their iOS app that includes some really cool features, such as begin able to restart a song or a show from the beginning, and pausing/fast forwarding/rewinding to the next song. If these features could be made available on your app, that would be amazing. As it is now, the app works terrifically. My one nitpick is that the app should be able to keep playing after a data disruption. At a minimum, the app should at least give a visual indication that it has stopped streaming.

    Thanks.

    • Do you have a sirius or xm account? Some old xm accounts doesn’t work very well on the phone. Also, you need to have web streaming subscription in order for app to work.

  94. Tim W

    TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!!!!

    Me: Nokia Lumia 900 / Windows 7.5 / SIrius subscriber since 2004. I also have the Best of XM package. Satelite works great in my car, works great on the web, and works great on Android and Apple apps. But with Buddy, many channels do not play (Dylan, Virus…. long list). This same issue is mentioned repeatedly here (and as far back as August 2011), which implies that nothing is being done or will be done to correct it. This should be an embarrassment for this app creator. The replies that appear here ( “It should work” and “Please remember that not all channels are available on this app” and it works fine with trial version) tell the story. If you’re a new satelite radio user, you might be okay. If you’re not, make sure to try before you buy.

    April 9, 2012 at 5:51 am

    • I understand your frustration but I have been explicit about this limitation. This is not an official app and thus have limitations. Both free and paid version have the same functionality and the only difference is one is ad funded. You can try the trial version and it should behave exactly the same with paid.

    I have been using your app for months. In the past month or so, I can no longer listen to the NFL channel 88. I can listen on a computer but it will not stream on my phone. This is the one channel I have used your app for most. Other channels seem to work fine. When I attempt to play the NFL channel it appears to work, but no sound ever comes out. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled, then I bought the pay version and same issue. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    April 11, 2012 at 3:29 am

    Ashterisk, do you think you can get the MLB Play-by-Play working? I can stream online, but since they don’t allow it in-car, I was hoping to use this (not to mention I am moving out of state and want to hear my Angels games!).

    April 12, 2012 at 10:45 am

    • Unfortunetly its not under my control. There are limited channels those are available to stream on phone so its a limitation which we have to live with till siriusxm release an officical api.

    Really close, lots of potential here — but something is amiss. I have XM All Access, and am logged in as an XM account. Some channels work in your app, some do not — for example Howard 100 and 101 work, but O&A on 206 does not … MSNBC on 117 works, SiriusXM Patriot on 125 does not. The error is “Media Playback Failed. Channel May Not Be Available On Phone”. All of these work fine on the web site or iPhone. Not sure why, but I’m hoping you can sort it!

    I have that app, but it does not function great. I can not get the NFL network, and when I listen to Howard Stern, if the screen goes to sleep it shuts off. So I can either keep my screen lit up, and kill my battery in an hour or 2, or keep unlocking my phone every 15 seconds. Neither one is a good option.

Between that and “oh, I’m not going to filter the channel list, you’ll just have to guess what works and what doesn’t,” I’m not especially inclined to pay the asking price.

    Ashterisk, just installed the APP. Very nice. As you have previously posted, no all channels will work. Just wondering if there is yet any fix so that the MLB Baseball games might be available anytime soon? A bargain at $1.99. Thanks,

    June 23, 2012 at 4:57 pm

  127. Simple question: if I buy the full version will I get the MLB Channels? Currently with trial version no MLB. It shows the current score correctly on the screen for the channel but will NOT stream the live game. I’ve been trying to access 915 Chicago White Sox and I am an XM subscriber. Otherwsie all music channels I’ve tried seem to work fine.

    June 23, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    • no. free and paid version are identical in functionality.

      June 24, 2012 at 12:02 am

      • So no MLB then, correct? Why and when do you expect to add it? I have a similar freexsirius/xml player for the kindle fire and it plays MLB so don’t see why yours can’t.

        June 24, 2012 at 6:14 am

    Ok here is the Issue, I bought the Sirius XM app and know that this is a 3 rd. party. I can say that some channels work and some don’t. If you are saying that we need to have an online account from Sirius xm so we can use your app and all the online channels should work, then when do you think that all the channels we pay for to Sirius xm direct to use them on your app will be available. As of now the channels look like that they are shrinking. We should see that we are getting more channels added. I also am not seeing the info being displayed on which info is playing at the time.

    I forgot add that my phone is HTC trophy on Verizon network with the most current update 7.5 and the OS version 7.10.8107.79 hope this helps. The message displays. Media playback failed: channel may not be available on phone.

    Greetings, I have a purchased version of SiriusXM Buddy installed on an HTC Titan II and I have two issues: 1. I get an error whenever I try to resume/play from lock screen-this happens if I pause it or it stops because of a call/text. 2. It rarely auto resumes after a text/call and as mentioned, I am unable to resume from the lock screen. Thanks in advance for your kind consideration.

    I bought this app and it doesn’t work like they say. And no one helps with the problem. It’s a rip off. Don’t buy this app.

      You are so right. There are so many problems with thiis app. Can’t sirrius/xm pull it or put a disclaimer on it. It gives them a really bad reputation.

      September 5, 2012 at 11:16 am

      • I have updated the name to reflect it correctly. Its a 3rd party app and the only way you can listen to Sirius/XM subscription on windows phone.
        I understand there are limitations but hopefully it provides some value. In addition, all the features are available in free/trial version so I hope people don’t feel they are mislead.

        I understand the frustration but I expect to get some appreciation for the work as well as not everything is under developers control

    App works nicely, but some channels do not. E.g. Escape (#69), Yoga (#360). Any chance you can fx those? Thanks!

    How come on my windows phone 7, it will not play some stations? It is a major problem with my most visited and listened to stations.

    August 2, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Should I assume that the update in marketplace today was just the name change to meet the new Marketplace requirements? Also, I assume that there isn’t a solution to the non-working channels issues, since it seems to be broken for all 3rd party programs, on all platforms?

    August 30, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    • yes, it was just the name change to avoid any issue with siriusxm brand. Unfortunately there is no solution that I know of for supporting non-working channels.

        Have you talked to the guys at CatPig Studios (http://www.catpigstudios.com)? Their app Radium has SiriusXM Online Radio support, including support for many channels that I can’t get through Satellite Radio on WP7, such as Tiesto’s Club Life Radio, Studio 54 Radio and others.

    Why is EVERY channel ‘unavailable on my phone’?

    September 8, 2012 at 11:56 am

  146. oya

    Kudos for building the app. Perhaps if you said music stations only, it would not be misleading. Or are there some music stations that don’t play? There are additional sporadic issues with streaming. It speeds up. It goes on and off during a song. It cuts off totally. And then sometimes several songs play in a row with no problem.

    September 8, 2012 at 2:48 pm

  147. Jocal

    Thanks for this app. It stinks the sirius won’t allow you to stream the full channel options, but at least I can stream the “basic” sirius channel. I hope siriusxm get the hint and does a windows phone 8 app, but in the meantime, I will enjoy using this app (come on sirius, a blackberry app but now windows phone app, really?)

  152. The app works like a charm the recent added channels like dirty dog don’t work but that’s just expected with third party apps for siriusxm

    testing with us free trial, does the app support the Canadian siriusxm accounts?

  156. Vincent Gonzalez

    When I did a trial membership stations like OutQ worked fine. Now I have a paid subscription it doesn’t. SiriusXM says its the software because its not officially supported AND the software developers say this problem is with the network SiriusXM. Each points a finger at the other meanwhile I’m stuck in the middle with no access to the one channel I really wanted. Please find the problem and fix it! I want OutQ108 access using my WP7 (7.5) CELL. Thank you.

  157. App worked good,
    Today it just stopped working,
    Only one channel is streaming pop2k
    Hits1, the heat, the basic channels dont work (they say starting, I check volume, says error restart from app)
    I know it could be Sirius, but any possibility to try to see what’s going on?

  159. Tested on other third party apps,
    Musicdock for iPod touch cant play the channels, but it can play pop2k and 20on20 (just discovered that channel works)
    Looks like sirius pulled the streams, the official apps (for my iPod, website streams) play all ok.
    It’s happened before, just wait might be back

  176. Joel Petrow

    On or around October 1st, Sirius/XM shut down their legacy streams that most 3rd party applications like the SiriusXM Buddy Player uses. It is not certain if this is permanent or if its just a glitch on their side that they will eventually fix. The same thing happened last year, and after a month Sirius turned the streams back on. Since Sirius/XM do not provide any support for 3rd party applications and will not answer any questions you don’t know if they will turn them back on.

    October 4, 2012 at 12:09 am

    • wayne key

      If this is the case, the app needed to be removed from marketplace until fixed. To sell something that you know doesn’t work is amoral.

    I would like to know if you have any idea why this app no longer works on my phone (Nokia). I had the free Sirius Buddy since I bought the phone in July. Suddenly two weeks ago it stopped working. Upon auto log in it looks as though all is normal but there is no playback. So deinstalled that app and bought the upgrade. Same problem, only now when i try to get a station it tells me that “station might not be available” for any station i try.
    Suggestions? Thanks.

    Is there a way to fix it or get a new app? It’s wierd because you’d think if it was an issue with Sirius XM you wouldn’t be able to log on and have all of the channel listings and song titles etc come up. It literally is just no sound. I would love some input if anyone has gotten around it. I do get an error message that refers to the app…? Thanks!

    You cannot get a reply from anyone responsible for this app. Sound still does not work on most channels. Sirius/XM evidently doesn’t support any app unless it is for Iphone, android or Blackberry. The creator of the app for Windows 7 phones does not respond to any of the inquiries I have sent.

    October 24, 2012 at 1:38 pm

  201. Huge Fail! Could be a mix of ATT & SirusXM having a pissing match or this app is what it is, a cheap knock-off that should not be posted in the WIN Phone Marketplace. Worked for a couple months now all my Favorited Channels will not work. I see album displays which update etc. No sound. Replaced phone after ATT thought device may be an issue, no go. Waste of money and time…

  203. As posted on my main page, the SiriusXM Buddy is no longer working because of Sirius stopping the legacy streams. I am not sure if I will be able to support the new streams and there are no official apis. Thanks for using the product while it worked and I hope to find a solution but can’t promise anything.

    This will consequently put many of them out of
