Sirius Satellite Radio has announced an agreement to deliver more than 80 channels of its music, talk and entertainment programming via Logitech’s innovative line of network music systems: the Logitech(R) Squeezebox Duet(TM) network music system, Logitech Squeezebox network music player, and Logitech Transporter network music player.
The Logitech network music players will connect directly to SIRIUS Internet Radio (SIR), providing a seamless and easy set-up. Utilizing a home broadband connection via Wi-Fi or a wired network connection, listeners can stream SIRIUS. SIR subscribers will be able to hear 100% commercial-free music channels, plus Howard Stern, Martha Stewart Living Radio, COSMO Radio, MAXIM Radio, Playboy Radio, non-stop NFL talk on SIRIUS NFL Radio, and four different comedy channels.
The availability of SIRIUS Internet Radio over Logitech’s players provides subscribers more alternatives to experience SIRIUS’ critically-acclaimed programming wherever they choose to listen, complementing our existing satellite-based delivery with internet-based delivery,” said Andreas Lazar, Senior Vice President of Business Development for SIRIUS. “Logitech’s devices stand at the forefront of internet-based delivery of content to dedicated entertainment devices.”
Sirius Internet Radio is compatible with all three of Logitech’s streaming media products for the home. With the new Squeezebox Duet network music system, music lovers can listen to SIRIUS on the home-entertainment system in their living room, the stereo system in their bedroom, even on the mini-system in their kitchen — anywhere they have audio gear — and control it all from the palm of their hand. The Logitech Squeezebox network music player is the easiest way to listen to music stored on Macs and PCs as well as virtually any Internet radio station through a stereo system. For true audiophiles, the Logitech Transporter network music player streams audiophile-quality digital music with sound that surpasses even the most exotic compact disc players.
“By offering content from SIRIUS over our Squeezebox and Transporter network music players, our customers can now experience SIRIUS’ streaming content on their home entertainment systems,” added Robin Selden, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech’s Streaming Media business unit. “From its commercial-free music channels to its exclusive talk content, SIRIUS’ programming will supplement the entertainment experience offered by Logitech’s network music players. And now with our newest Squeezebox controller, music lovers can turn on Sirius from the comfort of their couch.”
Logitech plans to make the Sirius Internet Radio service available to existing Squeezebox and Transporter users via a software update.
