LIBERTY MEDIA Pres./CEO GREG MAFFEI may have dropped a bombshell while being interviewed on CNBC by MARIA BARTIROMO yesterday (3/11). Are free channels being considered?
While responding to a question about "thinking outside the box," MAFFEI said, "I think SIRIUS XM is an amazing platform. You have a business with currently 19 million subscribers -- the potential to grow enormously -- but thinking more broadly, the fact that all radios could become satellite radios -- the fact that you could have a certain amount of satellite radio which was free and available to all -- not necessarily premium."
