Billing with Sirius/Pandora subscriptions

A while ago pandora and sirius merged. I understood I had to pay sirius in order to keep pandora which I had a premium account. My question is do I have to keep paying sirius $6.07 a month to keep pandora. I do not like serious at all and I never listen to it. I just want pandora.

@genealogylady65 To clarify, a SiriusXM subscription is not required to keep a subscription with Pandora.

SiriusXM and Pandora currently operate as separate services with their own subscription products and user agreements. Each service requires its own account and billing method, and subscribing to or canceling either service is independent of and has no effect upon the other.

Therefore, you'll need to manage your Pandora subscription through your Pandora account or by writing to us directly.

For help with SiriusXM services, you'll need to contact their support team here.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Hope this helps explain.

Billing for SiriusXM and Pandora subscriptions:

To clarify, SiriusXM and Pandora currently operate as separate services with their own subscription products and user agreements. Each service requires its own account and billing method, and subscribing to or canceling either service is independent of and has no effect upon the other.

So you don't actually get Pandora Plus or Pandora Premium as a combined package if you are also paying for a SiriusXM subscription.

Therefore, you'll need to manage your Pandora subscription through your Pandora account or by writing to us directly.

For help with SiriusXM services, you'll need to contact their support team here.

Features of Pandora that are offered with a SiriusXM subscription:

This all being said, we are pleased to offer Pandora Now. This is a new station that SiriusXM listeners can access on Channel 3. It is an ad-free hip hop and pop hits station featuring the most Thumbed Up songs on Pandora. (You can also add it on Pandora; just search Pandora Now to add it as a station.)

Additionally, SiriusXM listeners can now add Personalized Stations powered by Pandora to their Favorite Channels in the SiriusXM app. While these stations will not be linked to your Pandora account, Thumbing Up or Thumbing Down will improve them and make them unique to your preferences.

Pandora is also featuring select SiriusXM shows in a podcast format. These podcasts can be found in the For You section (through our mobile app) or Browse (through our website and selected devices), and will have a SiriusXM banner in the artwork. Click here to see the full list of podcasts available on Pandora.

For future updates, I'd recommend following our blog, or find us on TwitterFacebook or Instagram. We'll release more information there as we have it.

For other related questions, check out this FAQ.

Hope this helps!

so i'm late to the game.. what service am I paying SXM for regarding Pandora when I renewed my subscription on SXM. I thought I was paying for Pandora ad free service. I don't listen to hip hop or pop. I could care less about ch 3 on Sirius XM. I wanted ad free service so I can listen to pandora while jogging.

Hello,

I have an account with sirius xm, do you offer a discount or what does your upgrade entail? I understand there is a merger happening and would like some insight.
