SiriusXM recently agreed to pay $96 million to resolve subscription claims against them.

UPDATE: October 2020, the SiriusXM lifetime subscriptions class action settlement is now open. Click here to file a claim.


SiriusXM has reached a proposed $96 million class action settlement resolving claims that the satellite radio provider did not honor lifetime subscriptions.

Plaintiffs Philip Alvarez, Randall Bettison, Marc Kelleher and Darlene Vaugh claim they purchased SiriusXM’s lifetime subscriptions only to find out the subscriptions did not last the lifetime of the customer, but rather the lifetime of the device the customer first used to receive the service.

SiriusXM had offered lifetime subscriptions for $357.54 to $755, according to the settlement. After that device, the subscription was good on up to three more devices with a $75 transfer fee for each. SiriusXM asserts this plan was consistent with its marketing, according to the SiriusXM class action.


The proposed settlement will allow lifetime subscribers in the Class to actually maintain their subscriptions for life, as opposed to a maximum of four devices.

Class Members will also be able to transfer their lifetime subscriptions to an unlimited number of devices at the reduced charge of $35.

If a Class Member no longer holds an active lifetime subscription, they will have the option to reactivate it at no charge or claim $100 cash, according to the SiriusXM class action settlement.

Also as part of the settlement, SiriusXM will allow inactive lifetime subscribers who choose the reactivation option to stream its service online, with no additional fees.

SiriusXM further agreed to pay for the costs of the settlement notice and administration, court-approved attorneys’ fees and expenses up to $3.5 million, and service payments for each named plaintiff and Paul Wright up to $5,000 each.


 

Active subscribers will receive the benefits automatically, though inactive subscribers must submit a claim form to receive the benefits.

The claim forms may be submitted through the settlement website or by mail.

If an inactive subscriber does not submit a claim form, and does not opt out, then they will be subject to the releases described in the settlement. 

The Class currently consists of about 964,000 people.


As of the execution date of the settlement, about 838,000 have active lifetime subscriptions and about 126,000 have inactive lifetime subscriptions.

Class Members will be able to check to see if their lifetime subscription is active or inactive as of the settlement date via a tool on the settlement website. 

SiriusXM subscribers allegedly thought they would get a lifetime subscription.Christian Tregillis, an expert for the plaintiffs, says the benefits of the settlement are worth about $96.4 million.

“The terms of this Settlement are not only fair, reasonable, and adequate, as required for approval under the Federal Rules, but represent an achievement that most likely is better than any result Plaintiffs could hope to achieve through continued litigation of these actions, were they to certify a class and make it to trial before a court,” the settlement agreement says. “No mean feat, particularly given that this Court previously compelled the earliest filed of these actions to individual arbitration under the terms of Defendant’s alleged subscriber agreement.”

Wright filed the earliest action in this case on Sept. 12, 2016. In November 2016 SiriusXM filed a motion to dismiss the case and go into arbitration. The Court granted the motion June 1, 2017, dismissing Wright’s claims without prejudice. The Court also denied Wright’s request for leave to add additional Class representatives to his complaint.

Three other lifetime subscribers then filed their own class action lawsuits. On June 28, 2017, shortly before Alvarez, Bettison and Vaugh filed their cases, Wright appealed the order granting SiriusXM’s motion to dismiss and to compel arbitration of his claims. The parties then filed their opening, response and reply briefs in the appeal, according to the settlement.

The parties held a mediation Nov. 29, 2018, but a settlement was not reached. After lengthy negotiations, the parties were able to come to an agreement Dec. 5, 2018, just before oral arguments.

As a result, Wright moved to dismiss his appeal at oral argument, and the Ninth Circuit did not rule on it. The parties then went through months of negotiations to finalize the settlement. The plaintiffs asked for approval of the settlement and certification of the Class on June 13.

    My husband bought me Serius for Life in 2008. They balked at transferring it to my new Lincoln in 2017 and said I cannot have another transfer if I buy another auto.

    I am awaiting to hear from a manager from sirius radio canada. I had transferred my sirius from a car that had and accident and was written off in october and they charged me $75. The car we had in 2012 was a hyundai and was siriusxm and I am told the car we have now, a 2013 kia optima is just sirius and that when I transferred over the new car will not get all of my nhl nba mlb nfl channels!! We purchased the lifetime membership we did because of all these channels, we could listen to our games without worrying where to find them on am radio while traveling. We did not know about a class action lawsuit, do we still get the items given in the lawsuit if we did not join? like the $35 transfer( we only did it the once) and can we get another car we plan to purchase added for free? What I really want is my nhl and mbl channels back, how can they say they are transferring when channels are lost? we are not whole til we get them back! will see what this manager tells me!

    • Tom R April 13, 2021

      According to what I have read it is unlimited transfers @ $35 US and a real lifetime subscription. With that being said, it seems like SiriusXM might not be living up to the settlement.
      I have a few of the portable receivers and need to transfer one because it quit working. I was told that I would have to buy an old Sirius receiver (Starmate or Stratus 6 or 7) to receive the channels I signed up for under the lifetime subscription. If you replace a receiver, and it is a SiriusXM receiver, you will not receive all the channels that you originally started with. If you want those channels, you will have to pay for them. This is ridiculous, I agree. They are going to force all lifetime subscribers to buy a SiriusXM receiver so they can start charging us again for the channels we originally had.

  • Lee Babcock March 23, 2021

    The settlement was completed why can I not find out why I can’t find how to get my subscription restarted?

    Do you people not understand what “class action” means?? You do not asked to be added via a media website. Slay me. Read the terms of the settlement.

  • DarmokG February 20, 2021

    I’m in Canada – bought a lifetime back in 2007. They won’t allow me to transfer my subscription to my new vehicle anymore. What a load of crap !! – I paid close to 600$ for this thinking that I’d be good.. and extra fees every time I transferred… Lifetime subscription my fat yellow butt!!! Why offer it if you knew you weren’t going to honor it??

    I’d keep giving them 75$ to transfer no problem for them to honor their agreement. You can be damn sure I’m not giving them one more penny – they can take their service and shove it up their…. enuff said !! Oh and I’ll make sure to discourage anyone thinking of signing up too.

    • Michelle March 2, 2021

      Same here. We got to the 3rd transfer and they told us we were limited. I have escalated this issue up to corporate

  • Kenneth Bertotto February 13, 2021

    Bought a different vehicle. I purchased lifetime membership in, I believe 2006. They charged me around $125 to transfer to a newer vehicle and now $75 to transfer to my newer one. Do I have a case on refunding my money?

  • Tom Cannell February 9, 2021

    I Paid $595.00 for lifetime in 2007 with sirius Canada. Thinking it would help a start up company. I have only transferred once , but i am told that because i transferred now online steaming is no longer included unless I pay for extra subscription. so i would #1 like to know if i have recourse for this issue and #2 Am I to understand I do now have unlimited transfers after this action without my actual name being on it?

  • Wendy Bowers February 7, 2021

    I live in Victoria, BC Canada, I paid $684 for a lifetime and I am currently fighting with them about transferring my service to another vehicle as I sold the one it was on. They said I was only allowed to transfer to 3 time but I have transferred 5 time and now they are saying that there is nothing they can do. I advised them that I am aware of the Class Action Lawsuit and expect the same courtesy. I am waiting for a Manager to call me back.

    • Scott February 11, 2021

      They took one of my lifetime subscription and cancelled it on my 2014 ram, and they are say I never had it, must be some way of proving it was purchased

    • Clifford Johnson May 8, 2021

      I bought a lifetime subscription in Canada, I bought the portable radio to transfer in to the house or car…When the led night light stopped, working I contacted them, where to send in for repairs…. like it said on the box, when I purchase it.
      Sirius said, yes we are suppose to repair them….. but there is no repair place, so we tell are customers, the lifetime subscription is
      for your life time not the radios’….TOLD ME TO BUY A NEW RADIO
      WHEN IT NEEDS REPAIR…… NO CHARGE TO TRANSFER SERIAL NUMBERS….but as soon as I got to the brake even point, of the cost of the life time subscription…. they would keep cancelling the signal.
      till one day they cancelled my subscription
      THEY SHOULD PAY US … FOR EVERY MONTH… WE DON’T HAVE SIRIUSXM…. TILL THEY RENEW ARE SIGNALS FOR THE RADIO .

    I have two life time subscriptions and upset about their practice of telling me I have the subscription but must pay more to get channels I’ve already listen to. When the trial period in my new car was over, listening to all my stations, I tried to put my lifetime subscription to the car. I didn’t get all my stations being told for more money I could upgrade. My question is if I can listen to my stations now why do I have to pay more to listen to them in the car with the same subscription?

    Is this settlement only for USA or does it include all members. I am in Canada. While I appreciate that we only have to pay $35 as opposed to $75 – why do we have to pay anything at all?
    We have an active account and recently changed our vehicle, am currently talking directly with the executive office by email about this issue. Anyone know what a ghost (null) radio ID is? They’re suggesting this, have requested more info. Thanks

    I purchased a “lifetime subscription” in 2009. When I sold that car Sirius said it was ONLY for that car. I have paid yearly subscriptions since. I think those of us who have paid the yearly fees should be refunded those fees, not just have the service going forward.

  • Chris Thomson October 1, 2020

    From reading the comments here, it seems that there was a lot of confusion regarding the terms of the “lifetime” subscription – not just among customers but with SiriusXM personnel as well. In my case, I was told that I could continue to transfer (for a fee) to other portable/aftermarket radios but as soon as I transferred to an OEM radio (factory installed in a car or truck) I would no longer be able to transfer again unless the car was totaled, stolen, or the radio was replaced under warranty.

    In my case, I’ve owned that car for ten years so I haven’t had to argue with them about transferring to another car but this settlement is a good thing for if/when I buy another car.

  • Earl Brass October 1, 2020

    I just recently (July 16, 2020) transferred my lifetime subscription from one vehicle to another and paid the $75 transfer fee. Will they be supplying a refund?

  • Ray September 27, 2020

    As with others on this platform, I too purchased a Lifetime Subscription many years ago. Every few years I would call to, inquiring about this old subscription. Those I conversated with said the plan no longer existed and there was no record of my once-upon-a-time subscription. Needless to say this lawsuit comes not only as an “ah ha”, but knowing there may soon be a reactivation of that old Best Buy Satellite XM Radio device is … interesting.

  • James Donahue September 27, 2020

    I purchased a lifetime subscription in 2006 for $600. I still have my original radio and use it, but one week I rented a car that had SiriusXM radio so I called them told them my name and such and wanted to get radio access to the rental, after a little while to check my subscription they let me have the access for the week that I had the car with no charge, now you are telling me my life time subscription is not going to be for life that is BS no one said anything about different devices, the access was purchased by me for me to have access. Can I change the rules like that with all my other contracts ?

    • Tom murphy October 20, 2020

      That’s what I got too.. purchased mine in 2007.. with nothing stating that any fees or .. how many radios can be transferred too or from.. I called last yr said there was a $75 fee to reactivate a new radio and can only do 3 radios .. I’ve have my original one now since 2007 . Starting to go .. time you buy a new radio plus the $75 activation fee .. crazy .. plus asked to upgrade to all the newest channels… shit … they told me it be $600 more .. told them now way …

  • Bill Lee September 26, 2020

    Not sure when I bought the lifetime plan….many years ago. Radio still receives Sirius. I have had no problems or issues. If I’m happy and want to continue, do I need to opt-out of the settlement? If I do nothing, will the lifetime subscription continue, or is it going to be terminated at some point?

  • Sandra Miller September 26, 2020

    I bought a “lifetime” subscription several years ago for my new Jeep. I understood it would be for my lifetime, not as long as I had that car.WhenI traded my car for a new one, I tried to switch my Sirius radio. I was told I had to resubscribe. I told them I understood that it was for my life time not as long as I had that car. they denied misleading me and said I could not transfer to my new car without resubscibing I had to pay them more money to transfer to my new car. I never did receive any money back ,so I waw out $200- $300.

  • LEN EVANS September 25, 2020

    Got the notification of the pending class action settlement in the mail today. I’ve been a lifetime active member (approx. $500) for many years, but about six years ago I was told that I could only transfer to another vehicle once at a cost of $75. Did that. Only way to transfer again was if the vehicle was totaled. If this settlement is approved, I’ll be satisfied with the ruling. $35 for unlimited transfers is tolerable.

  • Jimmy Dunn September 25, 2020

    Purchased Lifetime Subscription in 2013. A couple of years after that (same vehicle) was told lifetime Subscription was no longer valid. Have been paying yearly charge since. Received a letter regarding the lawsuittelling me that I qualify to be a participant in the lawsuit. I called to request a Claim Form but have not received one. Cannot obtain one through website. Have misplaced that letter. Please send me the pertinent information regarding the lawsuit along with a Claim Form.
    Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

  • Mark Esposito September 24, 2020

    We have an active lifetime subscription, but I was told was only allowed one transfer. It is still active, but the vehicle on which is it active is a lease and being turned in within a month. I would like to transfer the subscription to a new vehicle we just obtained. I am hoping that this litigation will resolve all issues.

  • Jon September 23, 2020

    Bought a lifetime in 2007. Radio was stolen in 2014, so I didn’t have to use a 75 dollar transfer ( it really was stolen) had same replacement since, from car to car to truck… this settlement is fair and just, although I would have used my 3 remaining xfers if I had to. So far 500 divided by 14 is 35 per year and falling. So no complaints.

  • Mark September 23, 2020

    Add me. Lifetime purchased years ago. Radio still receiving but plan on buying a new car. If siruis available I’m going to activate pay transfer fee but…exactly what im charged will be interesting. As we still get it i’m to do nothing on law suit but….release Sirius. I don’t want to pay hundreds dollars again to get in my car.

  • Edward & Kathryn Walton September 21, 2020

    Purchased 2008 truck for husband & subscribed to lifetime Serius. I was told that once we sold vehicle, Lifetime was void. If truck was involved in accident & totaled, it could transfer to a another vehicle. I purchased a new Vehicle & was told Lifetime is no longer available. I pay yearly for my car, but husbands truck is still covered under lifetime.

  • Karen September 16, 2020

    Will all lifetime subscribers be able to benefit from this settlement or is it applicable only to US customers. I too have had 3 lifetime accounts since 2002. Was informed they could be transferred unlimited times for a $75 transfer fee. Last transfer occurred in 2017, paid the $75. There has never been any mention of a limited number of transfers until today when I was was informed they could not be transferred due to “overuse.” This is the first I have even heard of this. Hoping to get an answer because I am waiting to speak to “management.”

    • Michael Giebel September 26, 2020

      Life time member agrees with the unlimited $35 fee and unlimited transfer am 100% in

  • Ron Burns B September 14, 2020

    Same as all. Purchased in feb 09 on vehicle. Sold vehicle and was told no lifetime for me. Account states lifetime. They charged me 75 to move from 2008 vehicle to 2017 vehicle. Sent me emails etc stating it was a courtesy and no other changes are allowed. When I signed up I was told no limit on transfers and 75.00 each would be the contract. Now they refuse to move to my latest vehicle. All corporate scandal to me. The resolution to this case is fair. Just what a headache. Just need to know when I can call then and make them do the move to my current vehicle. Not fair at all to us consumers.

  • Lannie Simmons September 13, 2020

    As one of original lifetime members(over $500.00 to join, thank you Howard Stern). I was a little upset with the way I was treated at sirius radio . I never was informed of transfer fees till the shoddy receiver started messing up. I determined that I would just live with it.a few years later I moved from the city to the country and had problems receiving signals I was told I could upgrade for a considerable sum and a fee . I told them f*** your lifetime radio it cost me too much. And now again I take it in the arse because I’m inactive. I doubt I’ve had more than 1000(I’m being generous)hours of”listening pleasure” I have to settler a mere $100.00. BE DONE WITH IT sign me in

    I appreciate this information. I bought my lifetime sup in the
    very early 2000’s, and tried to switch rodios for the first time
    yesterday for $35. No go, they insisted on $75 so I have to
    stick with the original one in bad shape. Shame on them

  • Raymond September 8, 2020

    I just spoke with someone from Sirius and they said the settlement isn’t exactly settled yet. Lifetime members should receive paperwork in the mail with a phone number and or a email to put in your claim I suppose. Till then the transfers stand at $75.

    I purchased 2 lifetime subscriptions back in 2002. I also had the same issues as other subscribers my radios had failed and I transferred my subscription a few times with no issues. Then after my last radio failure the representative told me this was my third and the last time I could transfer over my plan. I argued the $75 transfer fee but in the end i payed it. I enjoy the product but sadly the radio/receivers just don’t hold up.

  • Charles Green August 29, 2020

    To date, nothing has changed on the Sirius XM website. I presume because the final court date is January 2021? I was one of the first Lifetime subscribers in 2002 and they have honored unlimited transfers with a $75 fee. However, I recently got a car with an auto dealer-installed satellite radio. On the Sirius XM’s website it states that if I transfer my subscription to the car radio, my subscription will no longer be transferable. So much for unlimited transfers! I have contacted the attorneys for the plaintiffs in hopes that the settlement will include unlimited transfers between a Sirius XM car radio, home, or dock & play radio.

    • Allison Miruzzi August 30, 2020

      The settlement specifically states that with an active lifetime subscription you can transfer it to another radio capable of receiving sirius xm for an unlimited number of times for $35, so as long as the radio can get sirius xm you can transfer it even if it is in a car.

    • James Skrip September 9, 2020

      Please let us know if you get a response from the attorneys. I purchased my lifetime April 2005 and there was no mention of lifetime ends if you put it a factory installed radio.

      Now Siriusxm tells me I cant transfer after my first transfer to a factory radio.

      Thanks for any info!

    • Cisco September 14, 2020

      I had a Similar issue, I’ve been a lifetime subscriber since 2006. I bought a new car in 2018 and transferred my subscription over from my portable radio to my new car with no problem paid my $75 which in all fairness they explained to me when I signed up. It’s the life time of the radio

      I recently got a 2020 car and transferred my subscription again paid my $75 and done so I thought. I signed up to listen to Howard Stern so I go to listen And it displays must subscribe to this channel. After a lot of back and forth with SiriusXM they informed me that my car has an XM receiver and they are no longer supporting Sirius radios. Needless to say I was upset. How do you change a plan that you sold without informing the customer.

  • Richard A Daniels August 25, 2020

    I purchased a lifetime subscription in 2006 or thereabout. My 2003 tahoe radio did not have sat capability so I used an external XM receiver that tuned in through one of the FM stations. Several years later I switched to another external radio. That is when I learned about the three devise limit and the fact that I could not include a car radio in that limit, meaning that if I purchased a new vehicle I would not be allowed to transfer it to the new sat ready radio. Needless to say that infuriated me as I could not understand all these restrictions to a “Lifetime Subscription”. Based on what I have read, it seems that now I can transfer my subcrpition to a new vehicle for a nominal fee of $35. This is wonderful. Thank you for coming to this fair settlement.

    I received lifetime Sirius for marine weather in 2007. 2 times over the last 12 years I had to fight fo refunds. 5 years ago I received one refund. Just this month I realized I was charged again this June and also was charged last June. During the last 3 weeks I called Sirius 9 times. I was told Sirius wouldn’t honor Sirius weather lifetime any longer. Even though they honored it for 10+ years. They suggested I switch to the lifetime radio program. They never told me about this action, I had to pay an additional $112 To switch to the radio and they didn’t refund my $382 for Sirius weather last year.

    I just received a rebate for the online streaming I always added on my account to play on my amazon device. What else are we supposed to do to be included in this class action deal or are we automatically included if we have lifetime subscriptions?

  • Victor Gonzalez July 23, 2020

    I got my service in February 2011. I bought a new Toyota Prius then and decided a “lifetime” subscription would be awesome. When I started shopping around for a new car 2 years ago, I called Siriusxm to arrange a transfer and that’s when I learned about the bogus definition of lifetime. I was not very happy. I kept the Prius. I was going to milk this lifetime. The satelite tuner in the Prius only works in the Prius 2011 and 2012 models. My Prius has 186K+ miles on it, so I have been keeping a keen eye out for a very slightly driven 2012 model that I could bring my tuner to.

    The class action settlement is very good news. I am going car shopping ASAP

    • Ron Burns September 7, 2020

      When can we contact Siri’s XM to homer this agreement? I signed up in 2008-2009 for life time. My online account still states lifetime. I am in the class action list. I have had same issues and they made me agree via email not signed documents that I can no longer transfer. I just purchased a new vehicle and if I move subscription to new car I will have a major battle. How to easily resolve this as I was always told lifetime and when I signed up I did ask all the right questions pertaining to lifetime and what it meant. My response was 75.00 per transfer with no limit on how many transfers.
      Thank you
      Ron

    Please add me to this. I bought my lifetime Sirius Radio subscription in December 2006. Since that time I have had to replace 2 radios because they went out on my vehicle and had to pay $75.00 each time. This last time I traded my vehicle for a new Grand Cherokee and they refused to transfer my lifetime subscription because I had transferred the “max” amount of times that I never knew about. I had to go to Facebook, contacted Sirius, and after talking to many people, they transferred my lifetime to the vehicle I bought back in 2016. Thank you so much. I so much want a new vehicle but have kept my current one because of the lifetime Sirius radio.
