XM services require an XM-capable receiver and antenna connected to a compatible device with an XM subscription.
The commercial-free music, plus sports, talk, news, comedy and entertainment you’ve come to love from Sirius XM in your car or on your computer, smartphone or tablet, can now be streamed in the comfort of your home through your Roku player.
For the talk and sports lovers out there, you get play-by-play sports, exclusive talk like Howard Stern and Oprah Radio®, comedy, entertainment and more.

I have had both a Sirius and an XM Radio since they each went live here in Minnesota.
While I did get my radios and first year of service for free due to being a Best Buy employee (at that time), I would have bought a satellite radio due to the long road trips that I take, and the lack of decent radio in many areas of the US.
Having both radios made it easy to compare the offerings of each company.
Both services now offer most of the same types of programming and the same types of sports.
Rather then attempt to keep up to date with the programming on each, I have chosen to point out the key areas where they differ, and let you (the reader) do the research on specific items that are most important to you.
A particular sport or sports team may be carried by one service and not the other, but that could also change each year. Each system uses vastly different hardware, so a technical merger will not happen.
