Sirius on Logitech systems

Three of Logitech's networked music hubs -- the Squeezebox, Squeezebox Duet and the Transporter -- will soon gain direct support for Sirius' Internet Radio service, the latter company has announced. Using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection, owners will be able to select from over 80 different stations, including talk programming such as Howard Stern and NFL Radio. More critically, the support will come as a software update, and will be controllable away from a hub or a computer, via remote.

Logitech's hubs mainly broadcast music from a Mac or PC to other audio outputs, but are already capable of streaming Pandora Internet radio without a computer, in addition to Real's Rhapsody subscription service. A Sirius Internet Radio subscription costs $13 per month; the Logitech update does not have a formal release date.
