Amazon Echo devices can play SiriusXM’s Holiday Channels for Free

If you’ve got an Amazon Alexa device at home, SiriusXM wants to enliven that home with the perfect holiday music this season – FOR FREE.

Now through December 25, anyone in the U.S. and Canada who is not a SiriusXM streaming subscriber (this includes those who are currently satellite radio-only subscribers) can tune in and listen free to SiriusXM’s suite of 15 commercial-free holiday channels on Amazon’s popular Echo smart speakers and other Alexa-enabled devices.  No email, credit card or credentials are required.

Simply enable the SiriusXM skill on your Amazon Alexa device either on the web  or the Alexa app on your phone, and click the “Enjoy Free SiriusXM” button.  Then tell Alexa to play any of these SiriusXM channels below.  For instance, “Alexa, play Holiday Soul on SiriusXM.”  SiriusXM’s crisp audio and curated, genre-focused playlists will deliver exactly what you are in the mood for this December.

The egg nog and a roaring fireplace are up to you!
