Sirius XM Radio vs. Spotify

Imagine driving a car alone without music on a lonely road. Sounds uncomfortable, doesn't it? Well, for an average car driver who is driving on the road during the pandemic, this is a harsh reality! Even though you can turn on the same old AM/FM radio, you'd still have to listen to radio static or ads for half of the time.

Luckily for you, options like Sirius XM Radio and Spotify are widely used to combat silence. But which one should you go with?

Let BillSaverUSA Inc help get rid of your confusion.

Sirius XM Radio

On Sirius XM Radio, you can listen to almost everything, everywhere. Whether it's positive affirmations, talk shows, music, or stand-up comedy routines - you name it! You can find anything you want to listen to.

The Pros

  • A plethora of programs: This service offers over 165 channels. Most of these are focused on sports, comedy, music, and a lot more. Since several categories are available, you may find some new favorites!
  • Live Broadcasts: Why would you need cable when you have satellite radio? There are several official sports channels that you can find on Sirius like NASCAR, NBA, NFL, and MLB.
  • Exclusive Content: Lastly, there are some personalities that you can only listen to on Sirius XM Radio.

The Cons

  • The Cost: A subscription to Sirius XM Radio can cost around $10 to $18 per month. This price might make you think that you are paying a hefty price when you can listen to local radio for free. Is the subscription genuinely worth the money?
  • Complicated Installation: If your car's factory radio supports Sirius XM, syncing your account will be easy. If it doesn't, then getting Sirius XM Radio for your car can be complex. You may have to get a radio adapter kit to make things work.


Spotify operates a lot like satellite radio, except the content is accessed by the internet. Like Sirius XM, Spotify also has pros and cons.

The Pros

  • Freemium: Originally, users needed an invite to join Spotify, but all you need now to get started is to create an account. You can create your playlists and use the search bar to listen to whatever you want.
  • Downloadable Content: Unlike Sirius XM Radio, Spotify also gives you the ability to download your favorite music. Because let's be real, even though we've come a long way, there are still some spots that don't have WiFi.

The Cons

  • Expensive: Once you've switched to the premium version, you'll have to pay for the service even when you're not using it. For $120 a year, that's about 10 to 12 albums that you could purchase in a year yourself!
  • Sound Quality: The premium version promises brilliant sound quality (320kbps), the free version (160kbps), however? Eh, not so much.

Wrapping Up

Choosing between Sirius XM Radio and Spotify can be difficult since both have pros that we love, and cons that can be deal-breakers. The decision comes down to the kind of user you are. If you're around locations that don't usually have WiFi, Spotify might work for you. But if your car supports Sirius XM Radio, the variety of channels might make every car ride sweet.

Both of these services have high costs, and that's where BillSaverUSA Inc comes into the picture. If you're trying to cut costs on your utility bills, we'll show you the way! Call us today at 1(888)789-1357 to get started!
