SiriusXM is now offering an $8-per-month streaming music plan that it calls SiriusXM Essential, a bundle of over 300 channels consisting of music, talk radio, comedy, sports, and other content.

This new, cheap option doesn’t include Howard Stern’s two channels — you’ve got to step up to Premium for those — but the company says you’ll get a ton of other variety for commercial-free music listening.

The Essential plan has plenty of decade, genre, and artist-specific radio channels: you can see the full list here.

Paying for online radio might seem pretty strange to the millions of people using the free, ad-sponsored tiers of Spotify or Pandora.

At $8, you’re coming near the cost of Spotify Premium, which lets you play any song on demand.

(SiriusXM does at least let you skip songs on its online “Xtra” channels.)
