FYI... news item from NowRadioNewsletter
Hispanics are the target of an affordable new SiriusXM package at .99 a month. CEO Jim Meyer announces that move at the BofA Merrill Lynch conference, saying “I don’t think we are getting the job done in the Hispanic segment.” Having Piolin suddenly available (after Univision dropped him) was a fortuitous event, and in October, Meyer says the satcaster will roll out “a special package aimed at the Hispanic tier, which will primarily be Hispanic programming with some limited English content,” at just .99 a month. Right now, the basic rate for either the Sirius or XM platforms is .99 a month, with better rates if you take a yearly subscription. Meyer also thinks the company can do better with potential women subscribers. Nothing announced yet on that front. Of course investors want to know about things like margins (40% is very much in the picture within the next five years) and content costs. Now that SiriusXM has renewed Major League Baseball, the next two big signing questions are the NFL and the star of the “Howard 100” channel.
I wonder if you call up and speak Spanish if you can get them to cut you a deal.

I was told I can run the car radio and one app or computer at the same time. And that works.

I was told I could NOT run two apps (or comp- app) at the same time. BUT....I ran the app on my phone and the app on my kids phone and they both worked! So...???? They say you cant but so far it seems to work.

The only thing is if you share a login you also need the password and people would be able to get into your admin panel online.

Too bad we couldn't get a feed from a sat receiver then stream it on a shoutcast channel.

there is more than one person doing this... searching shoutcast should yield results.

yes. There are torrents already, youtube videos, mega uploads, etc. I am sure it is on usenet somewhere, the issue is how to find out where.
