No packages come with XM. You can buy OEM XM from your dealer as an add-on, or from Coastal or PriusXM.
The add-on is really specified for the Solera, but works fine on the Prius.

you can install an XM radio that will intgrate with the Prius' display/controls, but the satelite radio does not come standard.

XM:

your favorite Toyota parts department: ask for the Solara XM radio kit,
part number PT546-06040

one known Prius-friendly Toyota dealer has posted the installation
instructions for the Toyota XM kit, and is offering it for sale here:

Sirius:

According to the thread at:
http://www.priusonline.com/viewtopic.php?t=4964

The Toyota Sirius kit for the Solara also works with the Prius. Part
numbers: PTS31-00051 (cable), and PTS31-00050 (Receiver)

Yes, it will work. Both head units have the add-on port in the back for additional devices. Intended for external CD changer, but other Toyota OEM audio products can go there too (and some aftermarket).

Sirius and XM use pretty much the same device IDs, and show up the same way: Sat1-3.
