XM CEO Sees Satellite Radio on Cell Phones

The CEO of XM Radio claims to have been in discussions with several telcos and manufacturers about putting the radio service on mobile phones, claiming that it was a natural fit. XM offers 68 commercial-free music channels, 33 news channels, sports, talk and entertainment, traffic and weather and a playlist that includes over 2 million titles. The service cost US$9.99 per month, and has nearly three million subscribers. A good number, but nowhere near the billion mobile users that are expected to inhabit the world next year, a good market for any content producer.
