It does not have satellite radio, such as XM/Sirius. One comment said it was compatible w/his iPAD and so I bought it, with plans on plugging in my iPAD to listen to Pandora but it did not work. However, if you have an iPHONE, you could listen to Pandora, satellite radio. Does it have a unit ID? I don't see why not although I did not find one on the box and I'm not about to pull out the unit to try to find it. Sorry. I suggest emailing Sony directly. Hope that helps. Still love the unit, though. Have not had any issues and I like that you don't have to "assign" everything, meaning you have to "convince" (for lack of a better way to put it) the unit that you plugged in your speakers and other components. Just plug everything in and BINGO, you have sound.
