After weeks of speculation, radio talk show host Howard Stern has announced that he has signed a new deal with Sirius XM that will keep him with the satellite radio provider for another five years. Prior to the announcement, a poorly-sourced and possibly deliberately misleading rumor claimed that Apple was prepared to offer Stern hundreds of millions of dollars to bring his show exclusively to iTunes, despite the company’s recent and highly publicized stances against explicit imagery or content in the App Store. Stern has announced, as MacDailyNews notes, that under the new deal his show will be available via the Sirius XM app, meaning that his show will be available through iTunes, albeit only to current Sirius XM subscribers. The Sirius XM Premium Online app is available now as a free download from the App Store.

Sirius’s website makes it hard to figure things out, but it seems iPhone app requires $12.95/month subscription after 7-day free trial ends. Or $2.99/month on top of Sirius radio package (starting at $12.95/month for a package with Howard Stern). Howard Stern will be added to iPhone online channel lineup next week.
