XM Canada, the country’s leading provider of audio entertainment and information services, is proud to announce the launch of an innovative application on Facebook Platform that allows fans to listen to over 100 channels of XM programming live.

XM Canada is offering a free 14 day trial to Facebook users so they can discover and experience XM’s unique content offering without ever leaving Facebook.

“Fans will be able to listen live to XM’s programming, including commercial-free music, sports, talk, entertainment without ever having to leave the XM Facebook Page,” said Andrea Fiederer, Marketing Director at XM Canada.

In addition, users can invite their friends to listen to XM, share the songs and channels they are enjoying and receive programming news and highlights from XM Canada.

The Facebook Page and application are an extension of the recently launched XM online+ platform, a new web-based player offering high-quality audio streaming that also includes an app for the iPhone and iPod touch that allows users to listen to XM anywhere, anytime.

“At XM Canada, we are always looking at delivering our content to consumers in original and unique ways that are convenient for people,” said Fiederer. “Facebook gives us the opportunity to not only share our content but also connect and engage with our listeners in a way we never have before. Millions of Canadians love visiting Facebook and spend hours online connecting with friends and family on a daily basis, therefore making it the ideal digital hub for XM Canada.”

In addition to providing live streaming of over 100 XM channels on Facebook, XM Canada’s Facebook Page will also feature the latest information on subscription offers, new product launches, contest, events, and links to videos of live performances at our studios all to ensure the XM community is kept up-to-date on everything that XM offers.
