Technology has taken us to new heights not only in television, computers, but also in radio. We are no longer listening to the local stations in our cars, at home, or wherever we happen to be at the moment. Satellite radio has changed the way we are able to listen to music, comedy, and news. The best part about satellite radio is the ability to listen wherever and whenever we wish to.
When radio was first introduced you had a receiver that would try and find the local station. As radio pr
ogressed we evolved from am to fm stations to what we have now. We still have am and fm, but there are always loud commercials, maybe ten different stations, and we lose signal for various reasons. The invention of satellite radio has eliminated these problems. With satellite radio the only commercials you hear are for the service provider like XM or Sirius.
They also advertise other stations that can be found on satellite radio. You will find that there are over a hundred satellite radio stations available in your car, at home, or even with small portable radios.
One drawback to satellite radio is the cost. You have to purchase the service from one of the companies as well as the radio. This can be an expensive proposition, but then you may feel it is worth it when you consider you have news channels, rock, country, new age, hip hop, oldies, comedy, and many more channels to choose from. You no longer have to wait for good music, news or something else to listen to during the half hour of commercials. Most of the satellite radio companies will have promotional deals when you are ready to up grade.
