How to Turn on Satellite Radio in My BMW

BMW 3 Series on the Road

With over 460 awesome radio stations to choose from, no one should wonder why people have chosen to go with SiriusXM Radio, a satellite radio company for the BMW. In fact, the add-on has become so popular in cars that auto manufacturers have automatically added this to all BMW after 2010. Typically, if you want this, you will have to visit a dealership to have them set it up. Most of the time, depending on the dealer, the setup takes less than 30 minutes, and you don't have to wait overnight or hours without a car.

What is SiriusXM Radio?

Every BMW sold within the United States and Canada comes ready for SiriusXM radio. That doesn't always mean that it has been installed, but it will be ready for you once you prepare for it. The only thing that you will need to continue is a BMW certified activation code, which upgrades the software. Once you have the BMW activation for your SiriusXM Radio, leave the car at the dealership, and the dealers will hook it up for you. Typically, the code will be active within less than a half hour.

What Does SiriusXM Radio Have?

One of the coolest things about SiriusXM Radio is how you have access to more than 150 satellite radio stations. None of them have commercials. With this system, you will have access to a variety of genres from:

  • Christian
  • Latin pop
  • Rock
  • Metal
  • Classic rock
  • Christian rock
  • Classical
  • Rap
  • RnB
  • Soul
  • Jazz

You will also have access to some of the best programming like Howard Stern, Nascar, NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB.

Laugh all day long with some of the hilarious comedy radio stations and plenty more action. Not only can you access this satellite radio from your BMW, you can also see it on the tablet or smartphone or the computer.

Trial Subscriptions

Every BMW vehicle will come fully equipped with satellite radio, and the radio will have a one-year trial subscription to it. As a customer, you can play these awesome tunes inside your car while road tripping down the highway. With some BMW, you will already have the service activated. However, other people with a past year model will need to check with their dealer if they will activate the service. The dealer performs a refresh, which uses the SiriusXM Dealer app to download it and get it started.

Once the demo service gets activated, the customer will have their trial service. The customer will almost immediately have access to some of the best radio through satellite. If you're not sure how this works, you can always visit your dealership to have them explain it to you. In fact, we'd love the chance to get you hooked up with SiriusXM Radio. If you're having trouble with it, and you'd like to get it started, we will be right there for you. Another one of the cool things is that once the customer has it activated, he can also opt for listening to it online.
