BBC RADIO 1 TO LAUNCH THIS WEDNESDAY EXCLUSIVELY ON SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO

NEW YORK – August 8, 2005 – SIRIUS Satellite Radio, the content leader in radio, will launch the acclaimed BBC music channel Radio 1 in America starting this Wednesday at 9 am ET during the channel’s popular Chris Moyles Breakfast Show.

SIRIUS’ broadcast of BBC Radio 1 will bring its subscribers their first opportunity to listen to the most influential and highly acclaimed music channel from the UK.

BBC Radio 1 will provide SIRIUS subscribers with a cutting-edge mix of pop, rock, R&B and hip-hop music. Radio 1 is also internationally recognized for its support of up-and-coming British artists, its unique in-studio performances and interviews, its extensive coverage of the international music scene, and its engaging and informative hosts and entertainment information.

“BBC Radio 1’s global popularity and its importance in the world of music can’t be underestimated,” said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. “SIRIUS music channels and Radio 1 are both focused on the listener, and now SIRIUS subscribers will have the unique ability to enjoy this exceptional addition to our service.”

BBC Radio 1 will be heard 24 hours a day on SIRIUS channel 97. The channel will be time-shifted by 5 hours so Americans can enjoy the channel’s lineup as it was intended- Chris Moyles in the morning, Scott Mill’s show in the afternoon, and kicking off the weekend with Pete Tong’s Friday night Essential Selection.

Yeah really everytime the date approaches for the channel to launch it is pushed back. Ethier they are having some serious technical problems are they just being lazy and going on with the channel. I won't belive anything until the station officially launches.

Now the preview loop says "coming in two days". So I guess it is Wednesday after all.

Also:
The Chris Moyles show starts at 7am in the UK, which means unless Sirius is going to launch the stream in the middle of Mr. Moyles' show, the time shift is actually 7 hrs, not 5 as indicated in the press release. 7 hrs, while a little more confusing, would enable both the left and right coasts to tune in at decent hours though!

I know we keep on this waiting game, but this just annoying. I didn't mind waiting until Monday or Tuesday once the announcement came out, but now I'm going to miss the launch Wed. since I'll be out of the office for work all day and unable to listen to SIRIUS.
At least the loop mentions the launch tomorrow. Can't wait.

I got my program alert set to remind me Wednesday morning. I remember listening to BBC Radio online before I got SIRIUS. Should be a great station to listen to!
