Go a tip from Miguel at LaBlackBerry that Sirius XM Radio is rumored to be releasing an app for BlackBerry within the coming weeks.

The app will be much like the iPhone version, and for the initial launch, Sirius XM for BlackBerry be be available for the following handsets:

BlackBerry Storm 9530
BlackBerry Storm2 9550
BlackBerry Bold 9000 and 9700
BlackBerry Tour 9630
BlackBerry Curve 8900, 8520 and 8530

According to the tip, Sirius XM for BlackBerry will be a “mobile extension of the Subscriber’s paid Premium Online Service.”

Additionally, 120 channels will reportedly be available through the app, the same number currently available on the iPhone app.

Also, just to be clear, the above image is just the iPhone app Photoshop’d into the Storm.

    I don’t get it, when it says, “mobile extension of the Subscriber’s paid Premium Online Service.” Does It mean I have to pay to add my bb added to my subscription?

    Another nickel and dime attempt by Sirius to release a half-baked product with limited functionality.

    If Howard is not included, then THIS WILL SUCK!

    The way I read this is if you already have Premium Online Service ($2.99 a month with existing service or 12.99 a month without) then you can use this app for free. I signed up for the Premium Online Service as soon as I got my car with Sirius installed. I felt it was worth it for the extra sound quality.

    In other words, as a current subscriber of this service this is a nice addition, but even it was available on the 8330 I doubt I would use it.

    It’s not clear what “paid premium online service” means. checking my account with sirius.com, it looks like adding premium sirius internet radio, is free. The app might require a purchase, but won’t that be a one time charge? I look forward to this development.

    It won’t have stern just like the iPhone app. I suspect that there is something in his contract that is preventing this. Ah well, at least I cam listen to him on my itouch via pocket tunes.
