Radio adds convenience features & more channels

Sirius XM Radio has introduced the SiriusXM Edge Dock and Play Radio. The Edge will be the first device capable of receiving the satellite radio provider's broadcasts using the new SiriusXM 2.0. The 2.0 revamp uses better modulation and compression to squeeze more content into a transmission, effectively increasing the available bandwidth and channels by a quarter.

The Edge still lets listeners pause, rewind, and replay live satellite radio programming. The radio allows for simultaneous browsing and listening and carries 10 presets. Parental controls optionally lock out mature content, and a jump feature can either go back to the last channel or to news and weather.

The Edge will receive all of the channels of previous satellite radios plus the new Sirius 2.0 channels. These will offer expanded music, sports and comedy channels including content from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ESPN SportsCenter, and George Carlin. More comprehensive Latino programming is similarly on tap, such as tropical, salsa, merengue, Latin pop, Latin hip-hop, and Latin classic rock.

Sirius has priced the Edge radio at $140. It's available from the broadcaster's online site and will be on retailer's shelves shortly.
