New York & Santa Barbara, CA (August 21, 2007) — SIRIUS Satellite Radio and Sonos, Inc., a developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the digital home, have announced the release of Sonos System Software v 2.3 that will bring “The Best Radio on the Internet” from SIRIUS to the digital home via the award-winning Sonos Digital Music System.
The companies have collaborated to provide SIRIUS subscribers with a way to wirelessly stream SIRIUS all over the house and control it all from the palm of their hand.
By connecting Sonos to a broadband internet connection, SIRIUS subscribers can access more than 80 SIRIUS channels. Sonos connects directly to SIRIUS Internet Radio, eliminating the need for an antenna, satellite radio hardware, or even a PC. This provides SIRIUS subscribers with their first broadband-delivered, PC-free solution designed specifically for home use. With the Sonos Controller in hand, SIRIUS radio users pick a room, pick a channel and hit play-in up to 32 rooms. As part of the out-of-the-box experience, Sonos customers will automatically receive a free, no hassle 30-day trial to SIRIUS Internet Radio.
SIRIUS Satellite Radio subscribers can upgrade to premium SIRIUS Internet Radio for $2.99 per month to receive premium audio quality streams via Sonos. For those who are not current SIRIUS subscribers, but who want it in their home with Sonos, a premium SIRIUS Internet Radio subscription can be purchased for $12.95 per month. SIRIUS via Sonos is only available in the United States.
