SATELLITE RADIO INFORMATION:
Satellite radio is a service that is available through subscription that will give you access to music, talk shows, sports games, and many more. This service is commercial free and is only available with a monthly fee to a provider.
This service is available world wide in many different countries. In the United States, there are two companies that provide this service to people. Each company transmits their signal at a different frequency. Therefore, receivers are usually configured to accept only the specific frequency the company transits. If you wish to switch companies, or wish to continue your satellite radio service in another country you will either need to purchase another unit for that specific provider, or modify your current unit to accept other frequencies.
Customers of satellite radio are generally happy with their service. Their main complaint is the high price of service. In the United States, it can cost you $12-$15 a month to enjoy satellite music on one receiver. Many people are unhappy with the fact that they must pay extra in order to enjoy the service in their units.
This extra cost has prompted people to abandon satellite radio receivers which are not portable, and opt for the smaller units so that they will be able to listen in different rooms in their home, take it to their car, as well as take it to their work place.
The pros of car satellite radio
Despite the high cost of satellite radio, customers still enjoy the product for many reasons. The top reason people are happy with satellite radio is the fact that it is commercial free. Most people hate the fact that there are so many commercials on regular radio.
Another pro satellite radio argument is the radio's abilities to maintain a high level of signal anywhere you go, unlike regular radio where signal strength is limited to your distance to the source. Satellite radio signals are sent directly to your receiver from a commercial satellite. Anywhere you go where you have unobstructed line of sight you will have a clear signal.
