Satellite Radio for Businesses

There are currently two companies offering radio transmission via satellite signals. XM Radio and Sirius use their own satellites hovering over the United States to deliver music and news via multiple channels. Most radio signals can travel up to 30-40 miles from their source. Even though XM Radio originates in Washington, DC, and Sirius in New York, their music and news can be heard anywhere in the US where the satellite signal can reach.

Satellite Radio for Your Customers

Satellite radio is commercial free because it is financed by subscribers, not by advertisers. At present, XM Radio includes some advertising. In addition, satellite radio is static free because the signal is digital. Subscribers to satellite radio need to purchase a satellite tuner for one of the providers and must subscribe for the satellite signals. Many electronics companies make receivers that plug-and-play in your car or at home. But for your business rely on an expert that can help you choose between the two services and design and install a solution that meets your business, and customer needs.
