Sending Static to the Satellite

“It’s only a matter of time until this content is free, FCC-filtered, and ad-supported.” – Mark Ramsey

Ramsey’s talking about Sirius’ new Internet Radio offering. While I’m not a big fan of the satellite model, the strength of satellite is that it’s an alternative to the AM and FM dials.

Admittedly, I’m coming at this from the listeners perspective. Not the spectrum owner, or the advertiser.

Then again, as a listener I prefer having control of when and what I listen to. As such, I’ve got everything in iTunes.

I’m rooting for Sirius. This is a great move on their part – be available anywhere. In fact, I’d love to see them increase their monthly subscription fees. More power to the listener.
