Sirius is no longer airing the Public Radio International channel.
The public radio program distributor had its own channel on the satcaster, a relationship begun in 2002.
In a statement provided to RW Online, PRI said that the landscape has changed dramatically since it entered into an agreement with Sirius to provide a full 24/7 PRI channel with a global news focus, the BBC World Service and BBC Mundo. "After careful evaluation, we have made a strategic decision to change our relationship with Sirius," stated PRI.
The company says it will continue to work with the satcaster to provide programming on other channels and will continue providing access to the BBC World Service.
PRI still licenses content to XM for the XMPR channel.
