      The idiot who wrote the article does not even know that sat radio is a duopoly!

      Smart Money is owned by the Hearst Corporation. Not only do they own radio stations, one of their officers sits on the board of the NAB. Remember the NAB is filing complaints with the FCC to prevent satellite radio from broadcasting weather & traffic. The NAB has also managed to propose legislation in the House to limit the broadcasting capabilities of satellite radio.

      Here's some info about the pending legislation:

      The Pickering-Green bill is a prime example because of the cosmic irony involved. It's because of the broadcasters' success in lobbying that they find themselves asking a rising Republican star like Pickering, who formerly worked for Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., the old college chum of Eddie Fritts, the president of the National Association of Broadcasters, to introduce this bill.

      Their bill requires the FCC to conduct a rulemaking to consider whether satellite radio should be able to offer locally oriented services, taking into account such neutral issues as "the impact of locally oriented satellite radio services on the viability of local radio broadcast stations and their ability to provide news and other services to the public" or "the ability of digital audio radio satellite service licensees to afford listeners the same emergency and other information as is afforded listeners of local broadcast radio stations."

    • Already read it days ago and discussed it too.
      Check old posts.

    • the guy should be fired immediately for horseshit research. exactly how are competitors going to enter? the clueless writer of that article is unaware that the FCC granted exclusive licensing to xm and siri.
      siri is one half of a duopoly with a huge chunk of cash. irresponsible reporting, the exclusive license is into 2007. by then siri and xm will have such a grip on the market, new enters will be unable to tap into new subs.
      think 3 more years of growth, name recognition and just who would sign on with satrad startup?
      nice try whatever you call yourself.

    • picture Microsoft, when they were working out of a garage, then Yahoo, before the Internet bloomed, now replace XM and Sirius in the article with the other two, see how it reads.

    • Institutions picking up shares real cheap.

      Told ya they were are riding this herd.

      You better run, they need more shares!

      • The bill is called:

        Local Emergency Radio Service Preservation Act of 2004

        Write to your congressman/woman NOW!

        To The Honorable_______________:

        I am asking you to please vote against H.R. 4026, the Local Emergency Radio Service Preservation Act of 2004 which, if passed, it will prevent Satellite Radio Companies from broadcasting local traffic and weather service to their subscribers in some of the major cities in the United States.

        The National Association of Broadcasters is Lobbying this bill because they fear that Satellite Radio is a threat to them. XM Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio, have between them about 1.8 million subscribers nationwide, a mere drop in the ratings bucket for radio stations. The New York public radio station, WNYC, has about the same number of listeners.

        The satellite services do plan to offer local traffic and weather in some markets, not by offering specific channels to specific markets, but by offering it on a national scale, thus meeting the letter, if not the spirit, of a "national service. You would be able to hear SIRIUS' or XM's Washington information in any of the other cities it serves.

        The Satellite Radio operators have spent billions of dollars in setting up a unique system of quality programming and entertaintment for their subscribers and are fighting hard to sign up enough subscribers to guarantee their survival. To prevent those same paying subscribers from being able to receive important traffic and weather service is just plain and simple unfair and un-American.

        I trust you will do what is right and vote against H.R. 4026 as I know that you are in favor of "the free market" and doing what's best for consumers.

        Yours truly,

      • BUY BUY BUY!

        The road is bloody
