SIRIUS Satellite Radio Review

August 25, 2008 at 12:59 pm 1 comment

I had a chance over the last week to sample SIRIUS satellite radio. I was not that impressed and have one major complaint (imagine that). Whenever the car drove under an overpass or through an area with a fair amount of tree coverage, the satellite reception was lost and the radio went quiet.

You would think SIRIUS would utilize some type of progressive load of the song so that short interruptions in connection wouldn’t cause an outage. By playing a song maybe 5 or 10 seconds behind the actual stream, there would be a buffer of already loaded song to continue playing while the satellite connection is reestablished.

    This summer, we borrowed my uncle’s van which had SIRIUS radio installed. I was not particularity impressed with it either. You’d think with 100+ stations that finding something to listen to would not be a problem. It seemed like the stations were so narrowly defined that listening to one station actually lacked variety.
