  • CES: Sirrus + Satellite TV

    Big CES in Vegas this week. I'm looking forward to the PVP - Personal Video Players and what they'll look like, use, etc.

    Anyway, part of this CNN article (http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/01/05/g....ap/index.html) writes about a Sirrus/Kenwood headunit that with a 4" antenna can pick up sat. tv.

    "...At least two companies will offer systems for those who want live TV beamed to their cars, rather than just DVDs playing on their seat-back screens.
    KVH Industries will unveil a car-mounted 4-inch-high disc antenna that pulls in satellite TV. The $2,000 antennas, already in use by the U.S. military, devote an array of tiny gyroscope-guided dish antennas to lock onto a satellite during the twists and turns of the road.
    Sirius Satellite Radio also plans to demonstrate that a Sirius-configured Kenwood car stereo can receive satellite-beamed video alongside radio broadcasts. "

    Just thought I'd post the link and hope more info comes soon.

    My bad, two different companies.

    One will use the 4" antenna and Sirrus/Kenwood are showing another thing.

    Although both are doing satellite tv in-car.
