BREAKING: Sirius Backseat TV unveiled on Sirius' website
Sirius Backseat TV will initially be available in the new 2008 Chrysler Town & Country and 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans. Sirius Backseat TV will also be available in the 2008 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
These factory-installed options (MSRP of $470) will include the Sirius Backseat TV receiver plus a one-year subscription to Sirius Backseat TV as well as Sirius Satellite Radio. After the first year, the Sirius Backseat TV subscription price will run you $7/month (but you knew that already) with the regular Sirius Satellite Radio subscription price of $12.95. Sirius Backseat TV is only available to Sirius Satellite Radio subscribers.
An after-market version of the Sirius Backseat TV receiver is expected to become available this summer.
Content partners include Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network.
The Sirius Backseat TV service will be available to the rear-seats only while driving, but passengers in the front can listen to Sirius Satellite Radio at the same time. When the vehicle is in park though, passengers in the front-seat can watch the video programming if it's equipped with MyGig. Check out hands-on photos of Sirius Backseat TV from earlier this year.
