Sirius satellite radio is moving a bit deeper into the realm of Internet radio. Sirius Internet Radio streaming has been available for quite some time as a computer standalone or with units such as the Stiletto 2 and SONOS that use a WiFi connection to allow users to stream content. This latest move with the popular Squeezebox from Logitech allows users to gain access to programming in yet another way, while also allowing full access to all Internet audio music.
Sirius Internet Radio is compatible with all three of Logitech’s streaming media products for the home. The Logitech network music players will connect directly to Sirius Internet Radio, providing a seamless and easy set-up. Utilizing a home broadband connection via Wi-Fi or a wired network connection, listeners can stream Sirius.
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 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.
