Once again XM has strategically paired up with the three largest names in car audio...Pioneer, Sony and Alpine. Sony is the only one that makes an XM unit for the home. While Sirius is mainly focusing on the auto market XM see that the service will go far beyond just cars.

wicked,

I am just beginning on this board after reading a link to it by Hoffer.

I have to say I disagree with this for a good reason. Every home has a hook up to the internet either by phone line, adsl, or cable modem, so all radio stations accross the country can be channelled into every home for free and still have advertising to foot the bill. I should include satellite for the home as well in this. But the services for car are a different animal. If people are as willing to pay for this service as you and I believe than for the car it will be successful hopefully, but these same customers can get even more for free elsewhere for the home or office. Also other satellite companies can broadcast to businesses creating a damaging competition for SIRI and XM. The car radio and the satellite radio for the business are going to compete, but the business more often will be hardwired so satellite car radios will not be the general business model for stationary receivers.

JMO...
