SiriusXM will be the exclusive audio home for broadcasts of FOX News and FOX Business Network for its more than 25 million subscribers. As part of the agreement, SiriusXM will add both channels to its SiriusXM Internet Radio channel lineup for the first time.

FOX News, the No. 1 cable news network, with more viewers than all other cable news networks combined, will continue to air on SiriusXM channel 114, and will be available on SiriusXM Internet Radio through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smart phones and other connected devices, and online at siriusxm.com. FOX Business Network will be available for the first time to subscribers via satellite and SiriusXM Internet Radio this fall.

The new agreement also includes the addition of FOX News Talk to the SiriusXM Internet Radio service. FOX News Talk, which offers news, analysis, listener call-ins, and commentary from popular FOX News personalities such as Brian Kilmeade, John Gibson and Alan Colmes, among others, will be available online at SiriusXM Internet Radio and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smart phones and other connected devices.

Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO, FOX News stated, "Our viewers love the ability to keep the connection with FOX News Channel, even while they're in the car with SiriusXM.  This agreement not only ensures that will continue but expands it to our FOX Business Network viewers and restores the FOX News Talk channel to SiriusXM subscribers on their computers and smart phones. This is good for FOX News, for SiriusXM and for the people we both work for, the American public."

"We are very happy to be the exclusive audio provider of FOX News and FOX Business Network, and to be able to bring them to our subscribers, on satellite and for the first time through our streaming platform via our App and online, for many years to come," said Jim Meyer, CEO, SiriusXM. "FOX News is an undeniable force in news, and its personalities attract a large audience nationwide. Keeping its distinctive voice in our powerful program offering, and adding those of FOX Business and FOX News Talk to our lineup of news channels, further expands their availability to a nation of listeners."
