    Sprint and Verizon sure do put a lot of effort in pay services that can be had for free. There are countless internet radio stations that work via PocketTunes or MMPlayer. Yet it works as the uninformed do buy into these things.

    Sprint will put Sirius radio on phones


    Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. will bring its paid radio service to Sprint Corp. phones later this year, the company said Tuesday.


    Details of the pact with Overland Park-based Sprint (NYSE: FON) were not released and the companies said they expect to announce more specifics, including the service's price, later this year.

    Both companies declined to comment through spokespeople.

    New York-based Sirius (Nasdaq: SIRI) and Sprint are considering a range of music channels, including classic rock, hip-hop, country, blues and jazz, Sirius said in a release.

    Sirius offers about 120 channels for $12.95 a month on electronic devices that hook into cars and stereos. This is its first deal with a wireless carrier to deliver radio onto wireless phones.

    Sirius has about 1.5 million subscribers and is forecasting 2.7 million subscribers by the end of the year.

    I'd be interested if Sirius put the NFL games on the Sprint streams too. I've been thinking of getting Sirius, but AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK, $they$ $don$'$t$ $have$ $one$ $of$ $those$ $cool$ $portable$ $mp3$ $player$ $sized$ $things$ $that$ $XM$ $has$. $And$ $I$ $won$'$t$ $have$ $to$ $pay$ $for$ $another$ $device$, $since$ $my$ $650$ $goes$ $everywhere$ $I$ $go$.
    I'm back!

    There's a good chance I'd buy this for NFL also. I must be uninformed Truly I've never taken the time to set up any internet radio feeds. I use an Ipod for music most of the time.

    I don't think XM carries the NFL. Pisses me off that XM sat on the sidelines while Sirius signed contracts.

    While I agree with you (that there are free alternatives) internet streaming of Sirius is included free with your satellite receiver subscription. I already subscribe to 2 satellite receivers so this Sprint thing MIGHT be included free for someone like me, or at worst there shouldn't be more than a nomial surcharge if anything at all.

    To counter my own comments, I suppose only a few percentage of Sprint data phones are PDAs that can play Net radio stations. But when paying extra monthly rates for several services.. Sirius, Yahoo mail, etc., it may pay to get a PDA phone since such users would likely be power users anyway.

    Awesome news...hoping the next gen Treo will have the service (bundled, perhaps?) and the T650 via a software patch. Though I wouldn't necessarily listen to Howard Stern (ba ba booie!).

    XM doesn't carry the NFL, that was my point. Sirius does, but they don't have a portable receiver like XM does, AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK. $So$ $if$ $Sirius$ $let$ $Sprint$ $get$ $the$ $NFL$ $stream$, $and$ $I$ $didn$'$t$ $have$ $to$ $buy$ $the$ $portable$ $receiver$ $and$ $could$ $use$ $my$ $650$, $I$'$d$ $be$ $all$ $over$ $it$.

    I had heard a rumor that Sirius and XM were in merger talks, which would be awesome, since XM has MLB and Sirius has the NFL. I also think one has some college sports feeds and the other has different ones, but I might be wrong. At any rate, I'd rather have both for a single monthly rate.

    Sirius does have a portable. I saw it in Sunday's paper here. It was like $249, but I can't remember the manufacturer. I think it was Audiovox, but don't hold me to it. I'll try to find it again if the paper is still here.

    I just saw a Sirius deal for a boombox type of a device, plus the car kit, plus the receiver, for about $100 after rebates.

    I stand corrected. It was NOT a true portable. It was one of those PDA type of devices that use a docking cradle of various types. The XACT model was what was in the ad. It was $49 and includes an FM Xmitter.

    Next time I promise to do my homework BEFORE I open my mouth!

    Yeah, I was talking about one like the XM one, which is mp3 player sized. I knew that Sirius had one that docked into a boombox type thing, but I wanted one that's a standalone receiver that is truly portable.

    My 650 fits that bill.

    There's a good article about the CEO of XM in Business 2.0 this month... talking about the sports and stern deals, possible merger etc...

    XTR5CMK ReGo Recordable Sirius Satellite Plug & Play Radio Receiver and MP3 Kit + Vehicle Kit looks like it might be pretty cool. Here is a big picture. It records 4 hrs of your favorite Sirius radio show. For piracy reasons, I am willing to bet that the recording(s) cannot be removed & installed on a different device such as the Treo or other mp3 player, burned onto a cd etc.
