The latest technological advancement to come to radio programming is satellite radio programming from Sirius. It’s a whole new way to broadcast and listen to radio and it changes so many things that we have grown accustomed to having with radio programming. The first thing that radio listeners of the past have to go with out with Sirius satellite radio is commercial advertisements, that now come in rapid fire succession on standard radio programming.
This is because Sirius satellite radio is a paid for, subscription radio service, so they don’t use radio commercials to generate revenue. You don’t have to wonder what it costs to subscribe to Sirius satellite radio, because you get it for free now with your DirecTV or Dish Network TV programming package.
Another great thing about Sirius satellite radio is that it has a separate channel for just about any genre of music you can think of and that includes anything from old gospel to blue grass to heavy metal to old classic country swing and everything in between. It’s broadcast from a satellite, so it is out of the jurisdiction of FCC sensors, so there is some very provocative talk programming to be heard on Sirius satellite radio.
