Abandonware. Radium is the only game in town now.

Pulsar is awesome. One problem, the channels don't display whats now playing until I click and listen to them. How can I fix this?

Wow, Pulsar is a fantastic alternative to the horrid "official" SiriusXM flash application. In fact, prior to finding this program, I was dedicating a Sonos S5 to listening to Sirius XM in my home office. Now this inexpensive application allows me to move the $400 S5 to another room in the house. I hope it stays stable and as usable as it is now. Great job Pulsar developer!

This app is simply amazing and worth every penny. I wish it was cheaper but considering I don't even pay sirius that much money for internet listening, but this app not only make it a million times easier to use, but it also a million times better looking and more informational. Keep up the good work guys! A+++++++

Pulsar is the best SiriusXM stand-alone player out there hands-down. It is much better than SiriusXM's clunky flash player and does not disconnect due to inactivity. It even allows you to rewind a few hours back. Don't know how I would get through the work day without my Pulsar!

This is probably the most useful piece of software I have ever downloaded. Not only can I finally get Sirius streaming on my recently-purchased MacBook (no luck with either Safari, nor Google Chrome), but the user interface is awesome! I can see, on one screen, what's currently playing on all my favourite stations.

This (2.x) is a great update. The Pause is a terrific feature addition. I *NEVER* use a browser anymore for Sirius online. If you are a Sirius and/or XM subscriber, and a Mac user, you need this, PERIOD. Baba Booey to you all.

V2.0 is a good thing better. New UI is easier on the peepers and the pause button is so tight. Maybe FF & RW next update. I love Rogue Amoeba almost as much as I love Rogue Beer!

This is the way to listen to Sirius online!
Super easy to download and use...love the graphics which displays the name of the song and the artist...or whatever you are listening to.
So far this has worked every time I use it...no problems.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a cool way to listen to their satellite radio online.
