Satellite radio giant SiriusXM, which is controlled by John Malone’s Liberty Media, said Monday that it has crossed the 30 million subscriber mark.
The home of Howard Stern added 465,000 net new subscribers in the first quarter, up from 431,000 in the year-ago period, to end March with 30.1 million subscribers. In comparison, Netflix, which report its latest results next week, ended 2015 with 39.1 million U.S. streaming subscribers.
“SiriusXM has grown from a pioneering start-up to a media powerhouse in less than 15 years of service by providing listeners with the best audio entertainment available,” said CEO Jim Meyer. “Our exclusive, unmatched content and ease of use has led us to this important subscriber milestone.”
