I think the effect would be greater if he was free on TV, people will now decide if they want Sirius' other 120 channels and his full show or a 60-90 minute show. I think the diehard fans will do both, those that just see him on TV may miss the other parts or see the show has gotten MUCH better and want to subscribe. There will be some people though that ask themselves "I can see the good parts for $10 or hear him for $12" and some will choose the VOD. BUT, I think people want to listen to him on their morning commute.

I'm not sure Sirius owns any TV rights, do they?

I think it is more than reasonable to assume Sirius Satellite Radio will be compensated for the Howard Stern on Sirius Show.

Excerpt from tomorrow's WSJ:

The three-year agreement will start this fall, while Mr. Stern is still working for Viacom Inc.'s Infinity radio unit. But in January he is leaving Infinity to join Sirius Satellite Radio. The Sirius show will be offered on In Demand starting in February, costing $10 a month.

The show, which will be offered in about 20 million homes, will be an edited version of Mr. Stern's radio program and run between 60 and 90 minutes. In Demand president Rob Jacobson said it was starting in February instead of January so it wouldn't conflict with the big marketing and promotional push Sirius will make prior to Mr. Stern's premiere. In Demand, which is owned by cable giants Comcast Corp., Time Warner Inc. and Cox Communications Inc., did not disclose how much it is paying to carry the show.

It may be "reasonable", but it depends on what the contract calls for. Who OWNS the rights? Do you know?

Remember, Clayton negotiated this deal -- and gave away the store in the process. It is just as reasonable to assume that Stern said, "Oh, by the way, we keep the TV rights to the show". If he did, Clayton might well have said, "Okay, whatever, we don't want them."

We just don't know until someone gets a statement from the parties on it.

One question.... why would someone want to subscribe to Sirius to hear Stern if they can jut pay $10.00 a month and watch it unedited on T.V., even if it is a day later. I think Sirius needs to re-negociate Stern's contract.

I think they should have negotiated it correctly in the first place. I'm not sure what basis they would have for renegotiating it at this point.

Perhaps the most difficult to understand part of the Stern deal is how in hell he got Clayton to give him $500 mln when XM was only willing to consider paying, at most, $25 mln/year.

Any contract is renegociable, especially a $500 million dollar deal!

Any contract is renegotiable if both parties agree. Why would Stern want to renegotiate?

I think that Sirius has to have a hand in this, they are buliding a studio with Cameras for Howard. People like Howard in the car, going to work, stuck in traffic... Not sitting at home watching parts of the show after work. Yes I would be nice to go home a watch the unrated open cameras.. and see what you listened to on the radio a few days back. I personaly do not think that this will, as some are saying, "Be the death of Sirius" I think both services are helping each other out and will make lots of money off Howard.... But time will tell, my insider at Sirius tells me, "here is no one who is worried about the OnDemand deal at sirius... The cameras were to be in the studio, before this deal was made... "

To make some points that others are not making clear..
1. The on demand show will not be the whole show.
2. You pay $10.oo per month for 20 hours a month of show clips on video
3. Sirius you pay $12.95 per month for over 80 hours of Howard, plus all the rest of sirius programing.

They are? Are you certain Sirius didn't just give Howard $100 mln/year out of which he has to build his OWN studio? If this isn't the case, the deal is worse than advertised.

This deal sounds to me like Stern didn't have a "competition clause" in his contract with Sirius. If this is the case, then Sirius has more to worry about than just VOD.

Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
Is Sirius getting any kickbacks from the deal?

Lot's of questions, too few answers.
