Pulsar 1.5.6 Brings Back SIRIUS and Supports XM Canada

Pulsar IconIt’s been two months since our satellite radio player Pulsar last saw an update, but version 1.5.6 is now available. This update fixes an issue caused by server changes at SIRIUS.com, leading to SIRIUS users being entirely unable to log in. As always, we worked hard to get this update out as fast as possible, so hopefully Pulsar users didn’t miss too much of their favorite content!

This update also includes full support for XM Canada, which was recently updated, and fixes a rare crashing bug with the Account Assistant. Of course, this update is recommended for all Pulsar users, and SIRIUS customers won’t be able to use Pulsar at all until they update.

If you’re already using Pulsar, be sure to update (for free) by choosing Check For Update from the Pulsar menu, or downloading right from our site.

If you haven’t used Pulsar before, you can see what you’ve been missing with satellite radio by downloading Pulsar. You’ll need a SIRIUS or XM Online radio account, so if you don’t have one yet, be sure to check out their free trials as well.
