Sirius Video Coming in 2007

Siriuis Satellite Radio CEO Mel Karmazin told Reuters yesterday that consumers can expect to see live satellite video service in cars by late 2007. Karmazin said that the service will be available starting in 2008 car models, which will be appearing toward the end of next year.

Content is intended to be geared toward children and Sirius anticipates to have some deals struck with providers as early as Jan. 2007.

Am I the only one who is horrified by the concept of satellite video in vehicles? I it’s currently supposed to be kiddie content, but it’s only a matter of time before adults get shows too. The prospect of having people driving around watching TV is a scary one indeed. The last thing we need is something else diverting he attentions of drivers.
