College students in the US are about to head back to school, and unsurprisingly, many companies have rolled out their student subscription plans once more.
SiriusXM threw its hat in the student plan ring today, announcing one that heavily discounts the cost of its standard Premier plan.
That’s all well and good, but is it enough to go up against giants like Spotify and Apple Music?
SiriusXM’s new student plan grants users a Premier subscription for $4 per month.
On standard accounts, Premier runs $13 per month, so that’s a pretty significant discount on the cost of service.
As far as content is concerned, there doesn’t seem to be any cuts either, as SiriusXM says that Student Premier serves up more than 200 channels across music, talk, entertainment, comedy, news, and sports.
