Sirius XM's Mel Karmazin says interoperable radios here in less than 9 months


Sirius XM CEO Mel Karmazin said yesterday that he expects interoperable radios (that is, radio that can receive both Sirius and XM, full-on) in less than nine months. (The FCC gave the combined company nine months to come out with such radios.) Whether or not that’s in time for the Holiday shopping season…

Now, radios that work with the a la carte service—you have XM but want one or two of Sirius’ music channels—should be here before the Holidays.

The best news is that the new radios, in all their glory, will be at next year’s CES. I may actually head out to Vegas just to see ’em.
