SIRIUSXM Radio has introduced the SIRIUSXM Edge Dock and Play Radio, the first satellite radio that delivers 25% more bandwidth capacity so it can receive an expanded lineup of commercial-free music channels, sports, and comedy, as well as the new SIRIUSXM Latino Spanish-language channels. The launch of SIRIUSXM Edge is part of the first phase of SiriusXM 2.0, a major upgrade and evolution of SIRIUSXM's satellite and Internet delivered service that will ultimately span hardware, software, audio, and data services.
"We are excited to begin the SIRIUSXM 2.0 rollout with the new Edge radio," SIRIUSXM Pres./Operations and Sales JIM MEYER said. "Edge will be available at 2,500 retail locations by the holiday shopping season. Additional radios and features in upcoming phases of 2.0 will bring even more content and capabilities to our satellite and Internet platforms, all providing exciting complements to our core radio services for subscribers."
