Final approval of a settlement in the Sirius XM Radio Inc. class action was reached on February 9, 2021. The case stemmed from allegations that Sirius XM Radio misrepresented the terms of their lifetime subscribers subscriptions. The Plaintiffs alleged that they paid for a lifetime subscription only later to learn that Sirius changed the terms to consider only the first device with a transfer of up to three devices, for a fee. Under the terms of the settlement, Sirius customers can reactivate their lifetime subscriptions for free, have unlimited transfers of lifetime subscriptions to other devices, and discounted transfer fees.
