Media in Honolulu, Hawaii - Satellite Radio

Satellite Radio

Due to its geographical location, service from Sirius XM Radio (the parent company of Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio) is not reachable, although Sirius XM programming can be reached through other outlets via internet or through subscription from various phone providers. XM progamming was featured on DIRECTV channels in Honolulu, but DIRECTV dropped the lineup in February 2010 in favor of Sonic Tap.

That all changed in 2011, when Sirius XM received approval from the FCC to begin transmission to Hawaii and Alaska as it prepares to place a 1.8Kw transmitter in downtown Honolulu in anticipation for a future launch. Sirius XM had been trying to expand service into Hawaii since 2007 but had opposition from the Hawaii Association of Broadcasters fearing loss of local competition. The FCC rejected the HAB's petition.

Famous quotes containing the words radio and/or satellite:

    Having a thirteen-year-old in the family is like having a general-admission ticket to the movies, radio and TV. You get to understand that the glittering new arts of our civilization are directed to the teen-agers, and by their suffrage they stand or fall.
    Max Lerner (b. 1902)

    Books are the best things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire. I had better never see a book, than to be warped by its attraction clean out of my own orbit, and made a satellite instead of a system.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
