New York Times : Satellite Radio Extends Its Orbit

David Pogue of The New York Times covers the current state of satellite radio. What is most interesting is the gap in customers between XM and Sirius. “XM now has over a million subscribers; Sirius has 200,000.” I remember reading that 2 million users is the break-even point for both companies. I listen mostly to NPR while I drive. I am not convinced that satellite radio could outperform a MP3 player hooked up to my stereo system.

    I wouldn’t get it for the music. Like you said, an mp3 player there’s probably the way to go.

    I think I’d opt more in for the talk radio aspect, such as NPR. Sometimes when I’m driving in the middle of nowhere country, it’s annoying when I can’t get my NPR.
