Do you listen to the radio in the morning, when you first wake up or when you’re in the shower? Do you listen to the radio at night, before you go to sleep? Most people listen to the radio for news, music and entertainment in their homes. Up until a few years ago, people were limited to receiving radio broadcasts in their local area, based upon the strength of the radio transmissions. In addition, these transmissions are paid for through advertisements, which interrupt the content which listeners enjoy.
Satellite home radio has revolutionized listening to and enjoying radio broadcasts. Sirius satellite home radio offers uninterrupted, music, sports, news, weather, comedy, and talk shows for a subscription fee. These broadcasts have no static, one can hear each channel broadcast very clearly. In addition, home satellite radio can offer content found exclusively on this type of medium. A famous example would be The Howard Stern Show. Stern, tired of FCC restrictions on speech took his show to satellite radio a few years ago. Now satellite subscribers can pick up his show with no commercial interruptions.
Other benefits of satellite home radio offers are that you can listen to radio broadcasts outside of your geographic area. This is important because if you’re out of town and you want to know what’s going on at home, you can pick up a local news broadcast from thousands of miles ways. Another example would be that you are a huge New York Mets baseball fan, but you’re living in Detroit. Through satellite radio for home, you can enjoy New York Mets baseball broadcasts wherever you live.
