Home and Commercial Units. SIRIUS home units that connect to most home stereo systems are available nationally. In addition, various multi-tuner and multi-zone units are available through commercial dealers and custom installation dealers. These units allow the user to listen to the SIRIUS service from multiple locations within a home or business.
The SiriusConnect Home tuner is a satellite radio receiver designed to interface with multiple radios, audio systems and home theater systems. The SiriusConnect Home tuner provides a one-cable connection to easily add our service to SIRIUS-ready home systems manufactured by companies such as Eton and Thomson, under the RCA and GE brands.
Many SIRIUS radios now include a “replay” feature, allowing listeners to pause, rewind and fast forward music, sports or talk programs. A number of SIRIUS radios also include SIRIUS-Seek, which alerts listeners when selected artists or songs are playing; Game Alert, which prompts listeners when their favorite teams begin a game or when scores change; Game Zone, which lists a listener's favorite team scores on one screen; and one-touch access to traffic and weather reports for select cities.
We signed an agreement with XM Radio, the holder of the other FCC license to provide a satellite-based digital audio radio service, to develop a unified standard for satellite radios to enable consumers to purchase one radio capable of receiving both SIRIUS' and XM Radio’s services. We expect the unified standard to detail the technology to be employed by manufacturers of such dual-mode radios, although we have no assurances that any manufacturer will build, or that a market will develop, for such dual-mode radios. The technology relating to this unified standard is being developed, funded and will be owned jointly by the two companies. This unified standard is also intended to meet FCC rules that require interoperability of both licensed satellite radio systems. In 2005, we substantially completed the design of a radio capable of receiving both services.
