Sirius adding data, video services

In addition to its Sprint service pact, Sirius Satellite Radio reports it has developed a new, advanced proprietary technology that will initially increase the company's total network capacity by approximately 25 percent. Sirius says the hierarchical modulation technology will allow it to offer additional audio channels and advanced services such as data and video without affecting the quality of its broadcasts. Sirius says it has already conducted several tests of the technology to confirm its performance. The company notes it is currently working with unspecified semiconductor partners to integrate the advanced modulation technology into its chipsets. Sirius expects to begin offering services using the new technology sometime in the second-half of 2006.
