Sonos Teams With Howard Stern, Sirius

August 18, 2007

 Boston-based San Francisco-based Sonos — creators of the Sonos Digital Music System — is teaming up with New York-based Sirius in a move that is expected to strengthen Mel Karmazin and Howard Stern’s argument that the company is not a monopoly and out to merge with XM Radio. The move is particularly smert because Sonos will place Sirius programming alongside Internet Radio, thereby wounding the National Association of Broadcasters argument that satellite radio operates in a non-competitive arena. From dBTechnoNews:

“Sonos is adding Sirius Internet Radio to its lineup of music and entertainment which will include the NFL as well as Howard Stern.

“.. This deal will allow Sonos music receivers to pick up Sirius stations. Beginning on August 15th Sonos ZonePlayer will be able to download software which will give it access to 80 Sirius channels. This includes Howard Stern and the NFL.

” According to their web site, Sonos is:

“first wireless, multi-room digital music system that lets you play digital music all over your house—and control it all from the palm of your hand.”
