Google TV To Offer SiriusXM

GOOGLE TV will bring aboard SIRIUSXM, hoping HOWARD STERN helps to revive its Internet TV software, which has little acceptance since its debut 19 months ago. REUTERS reports "SIRIUSXM will make all of its programming available on GOOGLE TV, including STERN's shows and live sports through a new app that will let listeners pause live programs and play back up to five hours of content, the company told REUTERS."
SIRIUSXM will make the app available for download this SUMMER.
Not everyone on GOOGLE TV will have access, however, as the app can only be used by subscribers and cannot be accessed without a SIRIUSXM subscription. REUTERS notes, "Users who download the app can also listen to additional channels they do not receive in SIRIUSXM radios in their cars, such as 'ESPN SPORTSCENTER,' 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Radio' and 'CARLIN's Corner,' a channel dedicated to GEORGE CARLIN's comedy."
