-

SiriusXM and Netflix announced the launch of Netflix Is a Joke Radio, a full-time comedy channel to air exclusively on SiriusXM ch. 93. This is the first time the streaming company has worked in unison with another major subscription media company to create a new outlet for their content. The channel, which will feature highlights from top Netflix talent including Adam Sandler, Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Gabriel Iglesias, Jerry Seinfeld, John Mulaney, Ken Jeong, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman, Sebastian Maniscalco, Trevor Noah, Wanda Sykes, and more, launches on April 15, 2019 on SiriusXM.

“Netflix Is a Joke Radio on SiriusXM will be an audio extension of our award winning stand-up comedy on Netflix,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “We are thrilled to feature some of the greatest and funniest performers in the world with highlights from Netflix shows as well as original programming that further celebrates the art of comedy, and we are excited to do this in partnership with SiriusXM.”

“SiriusXM is delighted to become the audio home for Netflix’s blockbuster comedy programming,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “Netflix has established itself as the unrivaled video source for stand-up, attracting the biggest names in the industry as well as break-out newcomers, and we’re eager to deliver SiriusXM subscribers access to their star-studded library, new specials, and original live shows.”

“I’ve seen the power of Netflix on their service for my own special, Stay Hungry, and now with their own SiriusXM channel, this opens up a whole new audience and it’s a great way to digest comedy on the run,” said comedian Sebastian Maniscalco.

In addition to featuring top comedy from Netflix’s massive collection of established and up and coming artists, segments from future stand-up specials will debut on Netflix Is a Joke Radio, granting SiriusXM subscribers the chance to hear new material from A-list comics before anyone else. The channel will also broadcast clips of Netflix’s comedy talk shows, and other comedic content from the service.

The exclusive channel plans to introduce an original daily show, featuring celebrity guests and comedians discussing pop culture and hot topics of the day. The program will be recorded from SiriusXM’s new studios in Los Angeles.
