Sirius Streams Stern

Sirius Streams Stern

It's been a long time coming, but Sirius Satellite Radio has finally added Howard Stern to the Web-based version of its subscription radio service. From the beginning, Sirius has offered only music channels through the Web-based Sirius streaming player, skipping the news and talk programming.

Sirius CEO Mel Karmazin promised during Sirius's Q1 conference call that Stern would be available online by Father's Day. Starting today, the Howard 100 and Howard 101 channels are part of the Web player lineup.

This is especially good news for those of us who like Sirius but struggle to gets its sometimes complicated hardware hooked up. Try stringing a Sirius antenna cable all the way across the office to a window, and you'll see what we mean.
