(CelebrityAccess News Service) – SIRIUS has
crossed the 100,000 subscriber mark this on June 20 when SIRIUS had 100,233 subscribers on its nationwide service of 60-commercial-free music streams and 40+ streams of news, sports and entertainment. "This is an important milestone for SIRIUS, which underscores the growing interest in our service as the premium provider of nationwide satellite radio entertainment," said Joseph P. Clayton, president and CEO of SIRIUS. "We're seeing consumer and industry support building both in our numbers and in recent reviews touting our superior programming."
"We reached our subscriber milestone without the benefit of these new products in the market place," added Clayton. "With the introduction of the Plug & Play units this summer, home products this fall, and the roll-out of the balance of our OEM automotive programs this year with Ford, Mercedes, Audi and Infiniti, we believe that momentum will continue to build."
The new Plug &Play products adapt to existing audio systems and can be easily installed by either the retailer, or the purchaser. Currently, the Kenwood Here2Anywhere is on sale at Best Buy, Circuit City, Tweeter, Ultimate, the Good Guys and other mobile audio outlets, including Crutchfields, at a retail price of $99.95, plus approximately $69.95 for either the car or home adapter kits. The Audiovox S.R.S. Satellite Radio Shuttle will also be priced at $99.95.–edited by Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
