SIRIUS Video initiative is 'well under way'
In today's conference call, SIRIUS Satellite Radio CEO Mel Karmazin provided some color on the much discussed mobile video initiative. SIRIUS has talked about providing video to automobiles for quite some time now, as far back as Jan 2004 where they promised video by mid-2005.
"We are close to signing deals to offer the best video programming for kids as part of our OEM offering in the second half of the year," said Mel Karmazin at the conference call.
This is a more aggressive timeline than previously indicated back in April 2006, when SIRIUS' Senior VP Bob Law stated that SIRIUS will unveil the satellite video technology at January's CES and launch shortly afterwards.
