  • A few of our listeners who have specific types of radios may experience minor technical issues once these channel additions and adjustments are completed. Most of these issues can be easily solved by giving your radio a few extra minutes to finish updating the first time you power it up on or after August 17. Other potential issues and troubleshooting tips are provided below.

  • What will happen to my radio on August 17?

    Just give your radio a few extra moments to update when you first turn it on. Why? Your radio may need 2-5 minutes to receive the updated lineup from our satellites. During this time, the audio you hear may not match what is shown on your display and you may see messaging such as "updating channels" or "acquiring signal" on your radio's display.

    Let it update. Please do not change channels while your radio is updating, as this will delay the update from being completed.

    Once the update is complete, tune to the channel you want to hear and you're all set.

    Visit www.siriusxm.com/channellineup to download the updated channel guide so you can quickly find the new channels and any favorites that may have moved.

    Some listeners may need to take additional action on or after August 17 if one or more of the following applies:

    • You have an XM dock and play radio and your audio does not match the channel you are tuned to, your presets return the wrong channel or some of the new channels are missing.
    • You have a Sirius radio and you use the channel preset or channel blocking features on your radio.
    • You subscribe to Mostly Music, Family Friendly, Basic or Espanol package.
    • You have a Sirius or XM radio model that is able to record programming and you have set up a specific program or programs to be recorded.
    • You are having some other technical issue with your radio that began on or after August 17.

    Back to top

  • Will I have to reset my radio presets?

    Probably not. On August 17 (or whenever you first turn your radio on after that date), your radio preset buttons should automatically sync to the new locations for any channels that you've chosen as presets. If this does not happen automatically, follow the instructions included with your vehicle owner's manual to quickly update your presets.

    Back to top

  • Will my Sirius radio presets point to the new channel locations?

    If you have a Sirius radio and your presets no longer take you to your favorite channels, you may have to reset one or more of your preset buttons.

    This is easy to do and should only take a few moments. Please consult your vehicle owner’s manual for assistance.

    We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • I have an XM dock-and- play radio. The audio does not match the channel I am tuned to. The preset buttons return the wrong audio or some of the new channels are missing. What should I do?

    Some XM receivers will continue trying to update even after they have been properly updated. Simply push the POWER button to turn your radio on, wait three to five minutes, and then press the POWER button again to turn the radio off (turning the car's ignition off and on does not count). Your XM radio should work properly the next time you turn your radio back on.

    Please consult your vehicle owner’s manual for further assistance.

    Back to top

  • The labels on my XM radio preset buttons no longer match the channel name/number displayed on my radio.

    This issue may occur if you drive a Model Year 2008 or later GM vehicle with a pre-installed XM radio. If this occurs, you will need to update the preset button labels on your radio. This is a simple procedure:

    Press and hold the preset button until you hear a beep.

    The preset button label should then match the name and number of the channel you're tuned to. Follow the instructions that came with your radio to quickly reset those channels.

    Please consult your vehicle owner’s manual for further assistance.

    We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Back to top

  • I have an XM radio and the programming I hear does not match the channel name/number displayed on the radio.

    A small number of dealer-installed XM Satellite radios used predominantly in Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles may not properly adjust to the new channel locations on or after August 17.

    If you have one of these radios you may notice that the programming you hear does not match the channel name and number you see on your radio. As you tune up and down the dial, the sequence of channel names you see may not match the sequence of programming that you hear as you change the channels.

    Click on the appropriate link below for printable instructions for performing what is called a "Channel List Update," the process that will correct this behavior. Important: There are different sets of instructions based on your vehicle and model year.

    • For Toyota/Scion model years 2012 or later with a touch screen, click here.
    • For Toyota/Scion model years before 2012 and Lexus model years before 2010, click here.

  • How will I know if my radio actually needs to be refreshed?

    XM radios should not have required a refresh on August 17.

    If you have a Sirius radio and subscribe to a Mostly Music, Basic, or Español package, here’s how to determine if your radio requires a refresh.

    The first time you turn on your radio beginning August 17:

    • Allow your radio to update. This might take a few minutes.
    • When your radio has finished updating tune to Channel 75.
    • If you hear Met Opera Radio, you're all set! You do NOT need a refresh.
    • If you hear nothing, if the channel number does not appear, or if you see a message like "unsubscribed channel", you will need to refresh your radio.

    If you have a Sirius radio and subscribe to a Family Friendly package, here’s how to determine if your radio requires a refresh.

    The first time you turn on your radio beginning August 17:

    • Allow your radio to update. This might take a few minutes.
    • When your radio has finished updating tune to Channel 41.
    • If you hear Turbo, you're all set! You do NOT need a refresh.
    • If you hear nothing, if the channel number does not appear, or if you see a message like "unsubscribed channel", you will need to refresh your radio.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Click here for a copy of these instructions that you can print out and take to your vehicle.

  • Why won't my Sirius radio go over 128 channels?

    Certain older Sirius radios lack the appropriate bandwidth to receive over 128 channels, including many which have been added in recent years. We apologize for any inconvenience. Visit our store at shop.siriusxm.com where you'll find a variety of radios including ones that can be used in your vehicle. Current SiriusXM subscribers may be eligible for discounts on most radios. If you'd like to upgrade your radio to one of our newer models so you can receive the additional channels, call 1-866-528-7474. Our Listener Care agents are available Monday through Friday from 8 AM – 10 PM ET and Saturday and Sunday 8 AM – 8 PM ET to assist you.

    Back to top

  • Why are the channels I previously blocked from my radio no longer blocked?

    For a few Sirius customers, the lineup adjustments and channel additions on August 17 could affect your channel blocking settings. If you currently use this feature, we encourage you to download a new channel guide at siriusxm.com/channellineup then check and adjust your settings accordingly after August 17.

    If you have an XM radio, your channel blocking settings were not affected.

    Back to top

  • I have a 2011 model Ford, Lincoln, Mercury or Fiat vehicle. The radio in my car is not displaying the Rock category or Rock channels. What should I do?

    Choose Select Genre and then choose All. Rock channels are now displayed. You can also tune to channels in the Rock category via the tuning knob or manual channel entry.

    Back to top

  • I have a portable radio. My scheduled recordings are now recording the incorrect program. What should I do?

    If you have one of the portable devices below with a recording feature, we encourage you to check and adjust your scheduled recordings on or after August 17. Only a small number of channels moved, but if the program you want to record has moved and you do not adjust your settings, your radio will record the incorrect program.

    If this happens to you, simply reset your scheduled recordings. For help with this task, please consult the user guide that came with your radio. If you don't have it, click here to find user guides for most of our portable radios. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    S50 • Stiletto10 (SL10) • Stiletto100 (SL100) • Stiletto2 (SL2) • MiRGE

    Please note that this does not affect any of the actual programming you hear.

    A small number of satellite radios used in Mercedes-Benz vehicles may not properly adjust to the new channel locations on or after August 17. If you have this type of radio in your vehicle, you may notice that the radio resets every 55 seconds, or says "Call Sirius to Subscribe" when playing audio.

  • I have a model year 2009 Land Rover LR3, Range Rover, or Range Rover Sport. The radio in my vehicle keeps displaying an "acquiring signal" or "Sirius update please wait" message. What should I do?

    If you experience this issue, here’s what to do:

    • Allow your radio to run in Sirius mode for 3 minutes.
    • Shut off the vehicle and remove your key from the ignition.

  • I drive a Chrysler and I am not receiving all of my channels. What should I do?

    Certain radios installed in Chrysler vehicles will need a signal refresh to properly sync with the updated SiriusXM lineup on or after August 17.

    You can easily refresh your radio from right inside your vehicle by visiting siriusxm.com/refresh on your smartphone. You can also send a refresh signal by calling toll-free to 855-MY REFRESH (697-3373). Be sure to have your Radio ID (or ESN#) before you begin. Click here for a copy of these instructions that you can print out and keep with you.

    Back to top

  • How do I find my Radio ID or ESN?

    If you need further assistance, please click here to chat with an agent who will help you find your Radio ID (or ESN).

    Back to top

  • Listeners with a Sirius radio and a subscription to a Mostly Music, Basic, Español or Family Friendly package may need to refresh their radio on or after August 17.

    Why? Without the refresh, your Sirius radio may begin receiving some channels that should not be included with the package you've chosen, or you might be missing others that you expect to hear.

    You can easily refresh your radio from right inside your vehicle by visiting siriusxm.com/refresh on your smartphone. You can also send a refresh signal by calling toll-free to 855-MY REFRESH (855-697-3373). Important: Be sure to have your 12-digit Radio ID (or ESN#) before you begin.

    A few tips to remember:

    • If you refresh your Sirius radio before August 17, you may still need to perform this action again on or after August 17 to realign your channels with your current subscription package.
    • Your radio must be turned on to receive the refresh signal, and your car antenna must have a clear view of the sky, so make sure your vehicle is not in a garage. If your radio is located inside your vehicle, it's easiest to go to siriusxm.com/refresh from your smartphone, enter your Radio ID or ESN and click the "Send Refresh Signal" button. If you don't have a smartphone, simply call us (855- 697-3373) from inside your vehicle when you're ready to perform the refresh. You may also schedule a refresh from your computer by going to our website.
    • Whichever method you choose, remember that the signal will be sent to your radio within a few moments of your request, so make sure your radio is turned on before requesting the signal. If you accidentally miss the refresh signal, please repeat the process above.

    Template:Infobox network

    Radio Disney is an Americanradio network operated by the Disney Radio Networks unit of Disney Channels Worldwide with in the Walt Disney Television, headquartered in Burbank, California.

    The network broadcasts music programming oriented towards children, pre-teens, and young teenagers, focusing mainly on current hit music and a heavy emphasis on teen idols; compared to most CHR stations, Radio Disney is far more aggressive in playing only current hits and eschews recurrent rotation.[1]

    For many years Radio Disney affiliated with stations in markets of varying size, mainly large and mid-sized markets; however, by the early 2010s, Disney had begun to phase out the network's affiliations with terrestrial radio stations, and sold its owned-and-operated Radio Disney stations (with the exception of KDIS in Los Angeles) to third-parties, in order to focus more on its distribution of Radio Disney as an internet radio outlet on digital platforms.[2]

    In 2015, Radio Disney partnered with iBiquity to distribute the network terrestrially via its HD Radio platform, and with iHeartRadio for further digital distribution. In 2017, Radio Disney launched a spin-off service, Radio Disney Country, which carries a country music format catered towards a similar audience. The network also lends its name to the Radio Disney Music Awards, an annual music awards presentation broadcast on television since 2014 by Disney Channel.

    Background[]

    Disney had for a long time been involved in the music business, building off its success in movies and TV shows, which later became Disney Music Group. However, with radio, Disney was not committed to the medium only doing a few shows. Radio Disney is Disney's third foray into radio. In late 1955, Walt Disney started The Magic Kingdom radio show—running Monday through Fridays and which was heard on ABC Radio.[3] Even before the 1996 Disney-CC/ABC merger, Disney and ABC Radio considered as early as 1992 planned for a children's radio network but dropped the idea.[4] Starting on July 31, 1994, Disney started a weekend radio show, Live From Walt Disney World, that originated from both Disney World and Disneyland on Radio AAHS.[4][5]

    In November 1995, ABC Radio Networks and Children's Broadcast Corp. reached an agreement for ABC Radio to provide marketing and sales to Radio AAHS. After Disney's acquisition of CC/ABC, Disney had ABC Radio cancel the agreement in August 1996 plus announced the start of its own children's network and ended AAHS's Disney World broadcasting rights.[6]

    History[]

    ABC Radio Networks[]

    Radio Disney was test launched in November 1996 in four markets, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Salt Lake City and Birmingham, Ala., by ABC Radio Networks. On August 26, 1997, Radio Disney was launched in Los Angeles on KTZN/710.[7]

    A nationwide roll out occurred in 1998 with 28 stations affiliating by August 1998 with an expected 63 stations by the end of 1999. Radio Disney purchased KAAM (AM) (Plano, Texas) for $12 million and switched the station to the network in July.[8] In 1998, the network was based out of its Dallas station.[9]

    Template:Quote box Other than music, the network in 1998 had "Mickey & Minnie's Tune Time," a 2-hour weekday toddler program and two 60-second features per hour which included contests, "ABC News for Kids", "Gross Me Out," a "gross" facts.[8] The network ran its Radio Disney Project Family Initiative from July 1 to September 15, 2003 with family-themed programming and events to get family to sign on to the Radio Disney Family Pledge.[10]

    File:Radio Disney logo 2001-2007.svg

    Radio Disney began being carried by SiriusXM in 2002.[2] Disney entered a joint venture to launch Capital Disney digital radio channel in Britain and operated from 2002 until June 29, 2007.[11] In 2004, Disney paid the former Children's Broadcasting Corporation (which operated children's radio network Radio Aahs) $12.4 million in a lawsuit settlement.[12]

    2006 marked the network's 10th anniversary; Radio Disney rebroadcast its first hour of programming from November 18, 1996, on June 6, 2006, at around 4:58 pm. ET on stations in select markets, such as WQEW.[Citation needed] Also, as part of the 10th anniversary, Radio Disney held the "Totally 10 Birthday Concert" on July 22, 2006, at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California.[13] It also included a simultaneous live webcast on the Radio Disney website. A second concert was held in Dallas, Texas, on November 18, 2006, at the Dallas Convention Center.[Citation needed]

    Disney spun off and merged on June 12, 2007, its ABC Radio Networks with Citadel Broadcasting into Citadel Communications while retaining its ESPN Radio and Radio Disney networks and stations.[14][15]

    Disney Channels Worldwide[]

    File:Radio Disney Logo.svg

    Operational duties of Radio Disney were transferred to the company's Disney–ABC Cable Networks Group (currently d.b.a. Disney Channels Worldwide), which otherwise operates Disney's cable television properties, except for ESPN.[Citation needed]

    In March 2008, Radio Disney and Gracenotes signed a licensing agreement starting immediately that allow the lyrics be seen along with the song online on Radio Disney Internet Radio Player.[16] The channel began streaming live on iTunes Radio Tuner in August 2008.[17] In November 2008, Radio Disney relocated its main operations from Dallas to Los Angeles.[9]

    The network launched on October 8, 2008 the Next Big Thing feature which allows listeners vote on young unsigned artists' songs to be played.[18] In 2013, the Radio Disney Music Awards began airing on the Disney Channel.[19]

    On February 14, 2011, a Radio Disney Junior block launched in tandem with Disney Junior on Disney block. The hour long block focus on music for the preschool age plus fun "audio theater" with Disney Junior characters.[20]

    Radio Disney started to reduce its station footprint to the larger markets to make the network more profitable. In January 2010, Radio Disney requested permission from the FCC to "silence" five of its owned-and-operated stations (along with a sixth station operating under a local marketing agreement with another company) while the stations were being sold.[21] Disney sold six AM stations and one FM station that year.[2] In June 2013, Disney announced the sale of seven owned-and-operated stations in medium-sized markets, in order to refocus Radio Disney's broadcast distribution on the top-25 radio markets.[22]

    On April 10, 2014, it was announced that Radio Disney's Top 30 Countdown would become a syndicated radio show, distributed by Rick Dees' Dees Entertainment.[23] Aha Radio, Slacker and ShowMobile signed online carriage agreements with the network in mid-2014.[2]

    Shift to HD Radio and digital[]

    On August 13, 2014, Radio Disney's general manager Phil Guerini announced plans to sell all but one of its remaining owned-and-operated stations on or before September 26, 2014, in order to focus more on the network's programming, co-branded events, and digital outlets. Listenership reports indicated that the majority of Radio Disney's audience listened to the network via satellite radio and other digital platforms, and only 18% via terrestrial AM/FM radio. KDIS remained operational to serve as the originating station for the Radio Disney network,[2][24] while the remaining stations would continue carrying Radio Disney programming until their respective sales were completed.[25] The last five Radio Disney owned-and-operated stations for sale were sold on September 15, 2015 to Salem Media Group (who was the largest purchaser of the stations) for $2.225 million.[26][27]

    On April 13, 2015, Disney announced that the Radio Disney network would move to HD Radio subchannels; the network will be distributed by iBiquity, with ad sales handled by its HD Radio Digital Network unit. A network representative that the move was intended to target families as in-car listeners.[28] On August 6, 2015, Radio Disney was made available for listening on iHeartRadio.[29][30]

    It was announced that on November 25, 2019, Disney has secured a deal with Entercom to bring Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country to the company's Radio.com platform.[31]

    Programming[]

    Radio Disney plays a large selection of songs from stars and programs on Disney Channel, along with popular songs from mainstream pop and R&B artists that are found on conventional radio stations. The network airs edited versions of some Top 40 songs (which remove profanity and any other suggestive content) to make them appropriate for younger listeners. The specialized radio format favors music which often takes on a sound reminiscent of "bubblegum pop" of the 1960s and '70s.

    Radio Disney Networks[36]> is an American radio network that is owned by Disney Channels Worldwide, Inc., a subsidiary of Walt Disney Television, a primary component of The Walt Disney Company's Disney Media Networks segment. Radio Disney Networks broadcasts three separated digital channels, Radio Disney, Radio Disney Country and Radio Disney Junior, via radio station's HD channel or by online stream sites. The original Radio Disney network play music and other content aimed at preteens and young teenagers; it can be described as a youth-targeted contemporary hit radio format with heavy emphasis on teen idols. Recently Radio Disney has become a Mainstream Top 40 Indicator reporter on Nielsen-BDS eventually being upgraded to monitored status with Nielsen-BDS. Radio Disney is also a monitored reporter on the Mediabase 24/7 Top 40 panel.[Citation needed] The network is headquartered in Burbank, California.

    Radio Disney Country targeted audience are 18 to 34-year-old.[37] The network's mix of music would be every thing with 60% popular artist and 40% up and coming artists.[38]

    Radio Disney Junior was available via the Watch Disney Junior app by August 2014.[2] On November 4, 2015, Radio Disney Networks launched a country music-focused internet radio station, Radio Disney Country.[39] Disney Channels Worldwide replaced its Watch app series with the singular, DisneyNow, which combines its TV and radio channels the week of September 29, 2017.[40] As November 13, 2014, Radio Disney and Radio Disney Junior was available on Slacker Radio with Radio Disney's Top 30 Countdown starting on November 15, 2014.[41]

    Radio Disney Country[]

    On November 4, 2015, Radio Disney Networks launched a country music-focused internet radio station, Radio Disney Country, which was initially exclusive to Radio Disney's own digital platforms. The service focuses upon current songs, current and past material from popular artists, and pop songs featuring country musicians. Guerini explained that the format of the channel was meant to allow it to draw from a wider range of songs than traditional country radio stations, owing to the format's "embrace" of rock, hip-hop and pop-oriented songs (with Rolling Stone noting its airplay of Lil Nas X's Western-trap song "Old Town Road" in 2019 as an example of this strategy).[42] The network's launch coincided with the 2015 CMA Awards.[39][38] Like its sister station, Radio Disney Country emphasizes current hits and uses little recurrent rotation.[1]

    On June 9, 2017, Disney announced that it would expand the network's distribution to include other digital platforms, such as iHeartRadio and TuneIn, as well as curated playlists on Apple Music and Spotify, and terrestrial radio with the flip of KDIS to the network as KRDC 99.1 FM and AM 1110 (the main Radio Disney network continued to be carried locally on a subchannel of KRTH until late 2018 when its contract to carry the network expired).[43]

    Let the Girls Play segment premiered on December 5, 2018.[44] In July 2019, Radio Disney Country opened a Nashville Music Row based studio. The network's Let the Girls Play segment is being recorded in the new studio.[37] In July 2019, Disney agreed to license Radio Disney video content to Sheridan Broadcasting Corporation to telestream via a patented process the content to the web and the audio to a radio station, WIGO-AM, asThe Radio Disney Hour (working tile).[45]

    Radio Junior programming[]

    • Magical World of Disney Junior, Disney and Pixar movies music
    • Pirates & Princesses, themed songs
    • Get Up and Move, dedicated to health and wellness[41]

    Stations[]

    Despite being music-oriented, the network was carried primarily on AM stations. The Walt Disney Company owned most of the network's affiliates, though some stations were operated through local marketing agreements that had varying degrees of local management. The last separately-owned Radio Disney affiliate, WOLF in Syracuse, New York, left the network on February 1, 2014.

    On August 13, 2014, it was announced that all of Radio Disney's remaining stations, excluding KDIS, were to be sold in an effort to focus more on digital distribution of the Radio Disney network. KDIS would be retained to serve as the originator of Radio Disney's programming, and its operations was assumed by the network's national staff.[2][24] However, Disney later announced that it would syndicate Radio Disney through affiliations with HD Radio subchannels.[46][47]

    Many former Radio Disney stations have diverse histories prior to the network affiliation. The call signs of Radio Disney stations (particularly those owned by The Walt Disney Company) were variations on the Disney name and that of Mickey and Minnie Mouse; at least one appeared to be named for Goofy (WGFY), and another after Walt Disney World (WDW).

Fans can also expect special musical Disney-themed hours and even some celebrity guest hosts.

    Speaking of which: Hollywood Records’ artist and Descendants star Sofia Carson will be the channel’s first celebrity guest host, taking over with a special Be Our Guest 4 The Day hour; she’ll be playing and talking through her top four favorite Disney songs as well as her new single. Be Our Guest 4 The Day featuring Carson will air multiple times on Friday, March 26: 9 am ET, 12 pm ET, 3 pm ET, and 6 pm ET. Hear from Carson about her very favorite Disney song in the clip above.

    5 Fantastic Things to Watch This Weekend

    Can you believe it’s almost the end of March already? Time flies when you’re having fun… And there’s much fun to be had around the worlds of Disney this very weekend. From a new episode of Raven’s Home on Disney Channel, to a new season of Alaska Animal Rescue debuting on Nat Geo WILD, and a sure-to-be-thrilling new ep of ABC’s American Idol—there’s a lil’ something for everyone. Settle in and enjoy!

    Brand-New Trailer for Disney+’s Big Shot

    There are hoop dreams on the horizon, courtesy Disney+’s latest original series premiering next month…

    The streaming service just released the first trailer for Big Shot, starring John Stamos (not only a veteran of decades’ worth of TV, but also an avowed Disney fanatic) as Coach Marvyn Korn—who, after getting ousted from the NCAA, is given a chance for redemption with a coaching position at an elite all-girls private high school. Korn soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability… foreign concepts for this stoic coach. But learning how to connect with his players, he starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be—while the girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and off the court.

    In addition to Stamos, the 10-episode series stars Jessalyn Gilsig, D23’s good pal Yvette Nicole Brown, and Richard Robichaux; and features a talented group of young actresses including Sophia Mitri Schloss, Nell Verlaque, Tiana Le, Monique Green, Tisha Custodio, and Cricket Wampler.

    Look for Big Shot—executive produced by legendary TV creator David E. Kelley—to debut exclusively on Disney+ beginning Friday, April 16.

    Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise Adds New Characters to Classic Attraction

    Here’s a fun scoop from our pals at the Disney Parks Blog: As you may recall, back in January, it was announced that Disney Imagineers would be building on the original story of the Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort, and Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort. Now comes news that, as add they more heart, humor, and wildlife, the classic attraction will also welcome new characters from around the world!

    Enhancements will include several new scenes that guests will experience along the river, all of which will be interconnected. The attraction’s world-famous skippers will continue to share the unique adventure and interactions guests expect on the Jungle Cruise, but these new scenes will serve to heighten the skippers’ legendary comedic tone—beginning with a trapped safari party that finds itself up a tree after their journey goes awry. Naturally, surprising shenanigans along the way will give the jungle and the animals the last laugh…

    Disney Imagineers will also be expanding the attraction’s backstory, centered around Alberta Falls, granddaughter of world-renowned Dr. Albert Falls, as the proprietor of the Jungle Navigation Company Ltd. As luck would have it, the Disney Parks Blog recently uncovered a copy of an interview with Alberta Falls, which was featured in a 1938 issue of The Daily Gnus about her and the World-Famous Jungle Cruise. Check it out!

    Disney Channel announced some news earlier this week that really put a pep (rally) in our step: Later this spring, ZOMBIES 3—the intergalactic, music-driven third story in the hit Disney Channel Original Movie franchise—will begin production in Toronto. Stars Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim are reprising their respective roles as Addison and Zed. Read up on what you can expect right here at D23.com; we’re seriously looking forward to breakin’ out our pom-poms once again.

    New Earth Week Experiences Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

    Should you find yourself at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort next month, you’ll be thrilled to know you’ll be smack in the middle of some decidedly amazing new Earth Week events.

    From April 18 to 24, in celebration of Earth Week, the park will host some incredible, limited-time experiences—including unique Disney character appearances; exciting learning opportunities; specialty merchandise; themed food and beverage offerings; a new Wilderness Explorer activity; and so much more… providing fun opportunities to connect with the magic of nature through engaging activities created to inform and inspire the whole family.

    For instance, for the Earth Week Celebration, guests visiting the Animation Experience at Conservation Station will learn to draw characters—including Dumbo, Terk, Squirt, Shere Khan, Simba, and Scar—whose real-life counterparts represent amazing stories of conservation work around the globe. Additionally, guests can set out on a series of self-guided, nature-themed challenges to earn a special Wilderness Explorer limited-time Earth Day Nature badge; enjoy some yummy Earth Week treats all around the park; and catch a glimpse of some special characters who will join other favorite Disney pals on Discovery River Character Cruises. Plus, beginning April 2, visitors can watch as artisans transform 40 tons of sand into a detailed sculpture celebrating National Geographic’s Secrets of the Whales, premiering on Disney+ on Earth Day. The sculpted masterpiece will be located on the Discovery Island Stage until April 30.

    Happy (almost) Earth Week, everyone!

  • A few of our listeners who have specific types of radios may experience minor technical issues once these channel additions and adjustments are completed. Most of these issues can be easily solved by giving your radio a few extra minutes to finish updating the first time you power it up on or after August 4. Other potential issues and troubleshooting tips are provided below.

  • What happened to my radio on August 4?

    Just give your radio a few extra moments to update when you first turn it on. Why? Your radio may need 2-5 minutes to receive the updated lineup from our satellites. During this time, the audio you hear may not match what is shown on your display and you may see messaging such as "updating channels" or "acquiring signal" on your radio's display.

    Let it update. Please do not change channels while your radio is updating, as this will delay the update from being completed.

    Once the update is complete, tune to the channel you want to hear and you're all set.

    Visit www.siriusxm.com/channellineup to download the updated channel guide so you can quickly find the new channels and any favorites that may have moved.

    Some listeners may need to take additional action on or after August 4 if one or more of the following applies:

    • You have an XM dock and play radio and your audio does not match the channel you are tuned to, your presets return the wrong channel or some of the new channels are missing.
    • You have a Sirius radio and you use the channel preset or channel blocking features on your radio.
    • You have a Sirius radio and you subscribe to Mostly Music.
    • You have an A La Carte or A La Carte Gold package.
    • You have a Sirius or XM radio model that is able to record programming and you have set up a specific program or programs to be recorded.
    • You are having some other technical issue with your radio that began on or after August 4.

    Back to top

  • Will I have to reset my radio presets?

    Probably not. On August 4 (or whenever you first turn your radio on after that date), your radio preset buttons should automatically sync to the new locations for any channels that you've chosen as presets. If this does not happen automatically, follow the instructions included with your vehicle owner's manual to quickly update your presets.

  • Why don't my Sirius radio presets point to the new channel locations?

    If you have a Sirius radio and your presets no longer take you to your favorite channels, you may have to reset one or more of your preset buttons.

  • I have an XM dock-and- play radio. The audio does not match the channel I am tuned to. The preset buttons return the wrong audio or some of the new channels are missing. What should I do?

    Some XM receivers will continue trying to update even after they have been properly updated. Simply push the POWER button to turn your radio on, wait three to five minutes, and then press the POWER button again to turn the radio off (turning the car's ignition off and on does not count). Your XM radio should work properly the next time you turn your radio back on.

    Please consult your vehicle owner’s manual for further assistance.

  • The labels on my XM radio preset buttons no longer match the channel name/number displayed on my radio.

    This issue may occur if you drive a Model Year 2008 or later GM vehicle with a pre-installed XM radio. If this occurs, you will need to update the preset button labels on your radio. This is a simple procedure:

    Press and hold the preset button until you hear a beep.

    The preset button label should then match the name and number of the channel you're tuned to. Follow the instructions that came with your radio to quickly reset those channels.

    Please consult your vehicle owner’s manual for further assistance.

    We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • I have an XM radio and the programming I hear does not match the channel name/number displayed on the radio.

    A small number of dealer-installed XM Satellite radios used predominantly in Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles may not properly adjust to the new channel locations on or after August 4.

    If you have one of these radios you may notice that the programming you hear does not match the channel name and number you see on your radio. As you tune up and down the dial, the sequence of channel names you see may not match the sequence of programming that you hear as you change the channels.

    Click on the appropriate link below for printable instructions for performing what is called a "Channel List Update," the process that will correct this behavior. Important: There are different sets of instructions based on your vehicle and model year.

    • For Toyota/Scion model years before 2012 and Lexus model years before 2010, click here.

  • How will I know if my radio actually needs to be refreshed?

    XM radios should not have required a refresh on August 4. If you have a Sirius radio and subscribe to the Mostly Music package, here’s how to determine if your radio requires a refresh.

    The first time you turn on your radio beginning August 4:

    • Allow your radio to update. This might take a few minutes.
    • When your radio has finished updating tune to channel 62.
    • If you hear Bluegrass Junction, you're all set! You do NOT need a refresh.
    • If you hear nothing, if the channel number does not appear, or if you see a message like "unsubscribed channel" you will need to refresh your radio.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Click here for a copy of these instructions that you can print out and take to your vehicle.

    If you have one of the portable devices below with a recording feature, we encourage you to check and adjust your scheduled recordings on or after August 4.

  • Listeners with a Sirius radio and a subscription to the Mostly Music package may need to refresh their radio on or after August 4.

    Why? Without the refresh, your Sirius radio may begin receiving some channels that should not be included with the package you've chosen, or you might be missing others that you expect to hear.

    You can easily refresh your radio from right inside your vehicle by visiting siriusxm.com/refresh on your smartphone. You can also send a refresh signal by calling toll-free to 855-MY REFRESH (855-697- 3373). Important: Be sure to have your 12-digit Radio ID (or ESN#) before you begin.

    A few tips to remember:

    • If you refresh your Sirius radio before August 4, you may still need to perform this action again on or after August 4 to realign your channels with your current subscription package.
    • Your radio must be turned on to receive the refresh signal, and your car antenna must have a clear view of the sky, so make sure your vehicle is not in a garage. If your radio is located inside your vehicle, it's easiest to go to siriusxm.com/refresh from your smartphone, enter your Radio ID or ESN and click the "Send Refresh Signal" button. If you don't have a smartphone, simply call us (855- 697-3373) from inside your vehicle when you're ready to perform the refresh. You may also schedule a refresh from your computer by going to our website.
    • Whichever method you choose, remember that the signal will be sent to your radio within a few moments of your request, so make sure your radio is turned on before requesting the signal. If you accidentally miss the refresh signal, please repeat the process above.
