Sirius Live Video in 2007

Mel Karmazin, CEO of satellite radio provider Sirius, said today that his company expects to offer live video over its network by the end of 2007, according to Reuters. Speaking at a presentation held by the press agency, Karmazin indicated that Sirius was "very close" to finalizing three content deals that could be ready as soon as the CES 2007 show in January, allowing the network to offer video at a later date. The service will primarily be targeted at children in the back seat watching headrest-mounted displays, the CEO said, and should be integrated in 2008 model year cars that will be released later in 2007. Pricing is expected to climb above the $13 per month set by radio-only service but has not been officially determined.

XM Satellite Radio also hopes to implement video broadcasts, but is waiting to see a significant audience for the content before investing in the technology.
