Sprint Nextel launches Sirius Satellite Radio

Sprint Nextel has become the first US mobile carrier to offer Sirius Satellite Radio as streaming audio. Sprint Nextel subscribers can access 20 commercial-free music channels through the Sprint Media Player for $6.95 per month. Users will also need a wireless data plan, which typically costs an additional $15 per month, and one of Sprint Nextel's seven multimedia handsets. The companies did not release financial details of the partnership, which they first announced in June. Sirius claims there are 1.8 million subscribers to its $12.95 monthly plan for cars and stereos, putting it second to XM Satellite Radio, which claims 4.4 million subscribers.
