Getting Sirius at the Dock — iPhone and iPod (SatBroadcasting)

Sirius XM iPhone Sirius XM, the satellite radio service provider, is set to introduce a satellite radio dock called XM SkyDock for the iPhone and iPod Touch, says the XMFan.com website. The company has scheduled a press event on Wednesday to talk about new products.

The SkyDock will turn the iPhone or the iPod Touch into a satellite Sirius XM radio receiver. And it is expected to come with a wallet-friendly price tag of $100. Customers will still have to pay subscription fees for the service but this product makes satellite radio an exciting possibility for iPhone or iPod Touch users.

In June, Sirius XM released an iPhone app for their service. But the application left out many of the most popular shows on the network such as Howard Stern, MLB games and NFL because of  contract issues over the right to stream to phones.  We hope the SkyDock won’t be crippled with similar problems.

Sirius also plans to introduce a new XM radio with color screen for $80, says XMFan.com
