Satellite internet radios have made the satellite radio industry widen its reach. Their exclusive radio programming becomes available over the Internet. One should not expect though that all these channels from the main satellite radio service are available on satellite internet radios. These satellite radio service providers are bound by the Internet performance rights they have over such channels. If they don’t have the rights, they won’t be able to play these in their satellite internet radio service. As you may observe, their channel offerings online are lower than their standard offerings. It is best that you check out their websites and see which channels they offer in their satellite internet radio service. Visit www.xmradio.com and www.sirius.com for more information.
