Sirius XM channels not available on Hopper with Sling

I recently upgraded to the Hopper with Sling. Just noticed I no longer have Sirius XM channels. I'm disappointed. Am I missing something?

but they are not up to date and do not mirror the siriusxm programming on my satellite radio. i.e. no Channel 18 Beatles Channel and no Channel 31 Tom Petty channel. Why not?

Probably because Dish has not contracted with Sirius/XM for those channels...

Great answer, thanks. I just opened up 70+ Sirius XM channels.
I had this exact question, just upgraded to Hopper 3 from personally owned Vip 922.
I joined the forum to post this thank you.

Is is possible to collapse the Sirius XM channel list?
Any other tricks along this line? i.e., Can the Dish CD channels be collapsed?
Cheers to all...

The Sirius channels can be collapsed because they are all on 99. Select 99, it expands. Select it again, it collapses.

The CD channels are individual channels.

If I remember correctly, Dish had this functionality when the original Hopper first came out. The Dish CD channels were mapped to channel 98 at that time. For some reason, Dish took that functionality away. :(
