    Sirius/XM iPhone app is now in beta testing...

    I have always said that the release of this iPhone app will drive massive subscriber growth and positive press. There are tons of iPhone users all over the world. I anticipate that many iPhone users will try out the app and subscribe to the internet feed and then realize that for a little bit more per month they can get a full subscription and then put a radio in their car and/or home. This will be huge...

    Could that possible be quantifiable? How could one possibly guess? How many iPhones are there? Take that number and I can tell you without a doubt that it will be less than that.

    I hate statistics anyway, no one ever figures the word of mouth advertising and residual subscriptions that will happen because people liked it on their iphone and got it for their car or even people who may have happened to be listening and told someone sitting next to them about the new app which lead them to go out and buy a sub of their own.

    All I know is that people who like iphones (people who are adopters of technology) are the same kind of people that might enjoy satrad so, its a good audience to start.

    Not an IPhone user...but that app is very nice!!

    How is the battery life with the IPhone? Does running apps like this one affect battery life at all?

    I haven't used the internet stream in a while, but from what I remember the channel selection was very limited, has this changed and does this app stream more/less channels than the regular internet stream? How about CNBC?

    I'll just toss this out there...

    around 10 million++ iphones sold and if 1% sign up for sirius then that would be 100,000 new subscribers.

    Now if somehow that makes it onto the Iphone commercial about apps...who knows, or worked into an iphone monthly package?
