Fine Tuning is the name of XM Satellite Radio's eclectic music channel. The program director for Fine Tuning is Ben Smith.

The channel is described as "A musical oasis for the sophisticated listener culled from every imaginable genre and country. You'll hear Strauss living in harmony with Van Morrison in a completely new and revolutionary listening experience...an audio oasis. A unique mix of Classical, Jazz, Rock and dozens of other styles. And you'll hear the unique perspectives of Quincy Jones as he characterizes American and world music, his influences on it, and linkages he sees, only on XM."Fact|date=April 2007

Fine Tuning has moved around the XM dial throughout the years. Beginning in the Classical category on channel 111, it later moved to World channel 104. The February 2004 channel shakeup moved the eclectic channel to Rock at 49. Finally, it settled on its current home in Lifestyle at channel 76 in August 2004.

On December 28, 2005, Fine Tuning began transmitting in XM HD Surround, broadcasting in 5.1 digital surround sound.

From March 15-17, 2008, the channel was temporarily pre-empted for "XM Green", a special format of Irish-themed music for St. Patrick's Day weekend.
