Subscription radio service to compete with Slacker, Pandora

Sirius XM will be heading onto Google TV in the near future. The app, requiring a seperate Sirius XM subscription and will bring additional programming not receivable by standard satellite radio sets. It will also offer additional channels such as ESPN SportsCenter, a channel dedicated to the comedy of George Carlin, and headline personality Howard Stern, according to Reuters.

Users of Google TV will be able to pause live programs and play back up to five hours of content, in a move that will expand the satellite radio provider's reach from already existing iOS and Android apps and broadcasts on Dish Network. Sirius XM has said it worked closely with Google on developing the app, which it hopes will compete with Pandora Media and Slacker Radio on the platform.

Sirius is expected to officially announce the deal at Google's I/O developers conference later today.
