Sirius XM Chill, is an electronica radio station, one of four Dance/Electronic music satellite channels operated by Sirius XM Radio, broadcasting on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 53[1] (previously 35), XM Satellite Radio channel 53[2] (previously 84) and Dish Network channel 6053. Until February 9, 2010, it was heard on DirecTV channel 857. The channel plays groove-based downtempo or "chillout music" and mellow tracks from alternative artists such as Coldplay, Cat Power and Radiohead. The station does not have any DJs. On November 12, 2008, the channel became Sirius XM Chill and merged with the XM version. On May 5, 2011, chill can now be heard on channel 53 for both services and Dish Network 6053.
