Satellite radio: music and more in real time
Posted by Mords1944 on April 12th, 2020
Millions of radio listeners in the United States and around the world have become much happier with the introduction of satellite radio. Now, people can listen to literally hundreds of stations that offer music, news, radio shows, and much more in real time and with much higher audio quality than FM or AM radio offers.
With conventional radio, ground stations transmit their signals to your radio cassette, computer, or car radio through the waves of the earth. However, with satellite radio, providers transmit encrypted signals to satellites they launched into outer space; These satellites in turn transmit the signals to the customers' listening devices. But you cannot use any radio; You need a special receiver (which is available in electronics stores) and satellite radio equipment. You can also listen to satellite radio broadcasts in your car, as many new cars passing through assembly lines already have satellite-ready equipment installed. All you need to do is pay your monthly subscription.
In the United States, the service is offered by XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio. Sirius, a New York City-based company, has more than 125 channels to choose from, 67 of them dedicated to commercial-free music and the rest to other content. XM, on the other hand, offers more than 160 channels, offering content as diverse as the one Sirius extends to its customers. Services are available from coast to coast, so geographic availability of programs is not an issue. A client in Los Angeles, for example, can listen to the same talk show that another client, for example, Boston, is listening to at the same time, and without degradation in audio quality. Remember that satellite radio also means digital radio: the sound is crystal clear. There is nothing of the static or whistle that you sometimes hear on the FM or AM radio. Non-US residents can also take advantage of the benefits of satellite radio; XM and Sirius offer their services in Canada, while WorldSpace transmits its service in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Australia also has several of its own suppliers.
The factors that attract people to subscribe to satellite radio subscriptions are numerous. On the one hand, there is the pleasure of listening to music without commercials. Since providers get their money from subscriptions, there is still no pressing need for advertising revenue. Another attractive feature offered by this service is that the information about the song currently playing is displayed on your radio, a small convenience for those who have to know who is singing which song right now. The fact that satellite radio programming is completely uncensored right now is also a draw for many people. Notable personalities such as shock athlete Howard Stern (who was kicked out of network radio programming) has made satellite radio his new broadcast home. Whether you want to listen to hip-hop music, comedy shows, or news shows, satellite radio offers them, all uncensored.
Because Sirius, XM, and other vendors are the ones who configure the channel selections, some people may find it a little awkward that they can't listen to their local radio stations and get information on local events. However, Sirius and XM provide traffic and weather data for major cities, so it should be a relief to city residents. And if you think about it, not having access to a local radio station wouldn't be so bad compared to the ability to listen to hundreds of music channels without commercials and unregulated unregulated programs.Also See: Satellite Radio, United States, Radio Programming, Radio Offers, Satellite, Radio, Sirius
