The Loft is a music channel on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, broadcasting on Sirius channel 29, XM channel 50, Dish Network channel 6029 and DirecTV channel 836. It features a format of eclectic adult album alternative music, occasionally branching off into more freeform music and talk programming.

Until November 12, 2008, it broadcast an acoustic rock format. The Loft changed formats to what sounded like the now-defunct SIRIUS Disorder and Fine Tuning by that time, with the acoustic rock format broadcast on its sister channel, The Coffee House.

Mike Marrone is the channel's programming director and primary on-air voice. Franny Thomas and Meg Griffin are also heard regularly.

In April 2009, the channel changed its logo from the one shown above. The word "Loft" is in bolder type with lines drawn behind it.
