The Heart was a music channel on XM Satellite Radio that specialized in playing soft AC love songs. It was available on channel 23 on XM and channel 819 on DirecTV. The program director of The Heart was Mike Abrams. The channel was dropped as part of the Sirius/XM merger on November 12, 2008. It was replaced by Sirius's similar The Bridge and Sirius XM Love (formerly Sirius Love).

Artists that were on the playlist include Whitney Houston, Elton John, James Taylor and Phil Collins.

The Heart was on XM's channel lineup at service launch. In 2004 and 2005, the channel's regular format was temporarily replaced with a pop Christmas music format called "Holly" between Thanksgiving and Christmas; in 2006, Holly preempted XM's U-Pop channel instead and The Heart retained its normal format through December.
