Howard Stern not happy about being left off Sirius XM iPhone app; blames contract

Apple Online Store “Howard Stern doesn’t sound too thrilled about his show being left off the SIRIUS XM iPhone app, blaming it on ‘a rights thing, a contractual rights thing,'” Sam Diaz blogs for ZDNet.

“Stern reportedly spent the first 30 minutes of his Monday show offering his explanation to listeners, who were upset last week when the app was launched without Stern,” Diaz reports.

Anthony Massucci reports for DailyFinance, “Stern told listeners on his radio show today, ‘It was a rights issue and a whole entanglement thing. So, we’re not on it. Maybe one day we will be.'”

Today’s Howard Stern show “is his first live show since the app was introduced last week,” Massucci reports. “Without Stern’s show on the app, ‘It’s like a product-light version,’ David Bank, analyst at RBC Capital Markets, told DailyFinance last week. That said, the SIRIUS XM app is the second most-popular free app being downloaded by iTunes users today, and has been the most popular download in the music category since its release.”
