Default SIR to carry CNN programming online for subscribers 24/7

Many have talked about how it would sure be nice to have a 24 hour news channel available via the online SIR Service. If this channel will be available via the Stiletto is still unconfirmed, but I am assuming since all the other channels are now available via the Stiletto's Internet Radio, this channel will be made available too. We will keep you posted as we get more information.

Here is a portion of the PR Release:

As of January 16, 2007, CNN now streams online to SIRIUS subscribers 24/7. SIRIUS also broadcasts CNN on its satellite radio channel 132. SIRIUS simulcasts the programming from CNN's powerful television lineup, featuring shows such as American Morning, The Situation Room, Lou Dobbs Tonight, Paula Zahn Now, Anderson Cooper 360°, and Larry King Live. CNN offers round-the-clock coverage of breaking news and is home to experienced journalists, such as Wolf Blitzer, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Soledad O'Brien and Miles O’Brien.

Yep, up and running. Not bad! I'd rather have CNN Headline News, but whatever...

Excellent news (no pun intended)! I hope that this is a sign that Sirius is working with many of it's content partners to make more of the service available via internet streaming to subscribers.

That is great news, lets hope the other news channels follow CNN's lead.

I have confirmed that we should get an update within a week so that will make CNN available via the Stiletto. So this is indeed good news and hope this is only the start of them offering other programming via the Internet Radio (Wifi).

Plus if at some point we get the 128kb streaming for music with 48kb talk,news,entertainment and sports talk channels then this will really make the wifi or (Stiletto Internet Radio) even that much more valuable.

This is making me want too things.
1. A stilleto
2. My company to allow streaming.
The catch is number 2 is a requirement for number 1.

Has there been any hint of more channel line-up changes for the new year? I'm looking forward to some timeslot changes for certain programming. Every year around this time they seem to shuffle things around, so what about this year?

Nice.

For awhile I was actually entertaining the notion that SIRIUS would just produce their own news channel like with the old Preview channel and have a newsman such as George Flowers read the news. This is probably a better idea.

Now I'd like to see them focus on those supposed "Internet-only" channels we've heard so much about. Hey, it's the perfect opportunity/excuse to bring some of the old beloved channels (Vacation, Folktown, etc.) back.

And this gives us hope that maybe one of these days ALL the channels will be available via the Internet. Maybe.
