I happened across an ad today for Sirius Satellite TV – coming soon. The unit combines kid-friendly TV with Sirius radio.

Verrry interesting.

But what does this really mean? If Sirius can broadcast three TV channels, how many more can it add? Does this mean Sirius is worried about the future of satellite radio?

Who knows?

The unit’s advertised cost is $249 but it’s BYOM – in other words, you have to provide the TV monitor.

The ad I saw said that it’s children’s TV plus Sirius in one system, that there is a dedicated child friendly remote control and that the unit is compatible with most aftermarket video monitors.

Who’d of thunk that Sirius could do TV?
