Business Combination and Asset Acquisition [Abstract]  
Acquisitions Acquisitions
On October 16, 2020, Sirius XM acquired certain assets and liabilities of Stitcher from Scripps for $266 in cash, which amount includes net working capital adjustments. The total purchase consideration of $302 includes $36 related to the acquisition date fair value of the contingent consideration. As of September 30, 2021, we will potentially make up to $30 in additional payments to Scripps related to the contingent consideration based on Stitcher's achievement of certain financial metrics in 2021. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recognized a $17 benefit related to the change in fair value of the 2021 portion of the contingent consideration in Impairment, restructuring and acquisition costs on our unaudited consolidated statements of comprehensive income. The fair value of the contingent consideration was determined using a probability-weighted cash flow model and will be remeasured to fair value at each subsequent reporting period. Stitcher is included in our Pandora reporting unit.
The table below summarizes the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date:
