Re: Sirius Satelitte Radio
Latest I've read on Sirius is that satellite radio is the Beta tape player of the near future ( as in a matter of weeks ). Which leaves me with a bunch of useless hardware and a year to go on my subscription.
I can take consolation in that I can de-clutter my vehicle of wires and cables and that since the speaker system I bought has an AUX. in I can use it with my iPod.
I'm hoping that working through bankruptcy, Sirius can re-focus and dump the millions in contracts with Howard Stern and Martha Stewart and concentrate on broadcasting world radio such as BBC, CBC, NPR and the like and still carry low-cost music channels.
Their primary market was new vehicles and sales are down 37 per cent. But, I think they missed the boat, and RV's ( although I'm sure sales would be down here too ).
At home, in an urban setting, I have no use for satellite radio. I have too many options. But, out in the boondocks, that's my only source of news and current affairs.
I should have returned the gift, but I was already returning the electric outboard motor. Just another chapter in the life of the guy who couldn't shoot straight.
