XM Radio Online launching in October


XM Radio, after scrapping their XM PC Receiver because of piracy concerns, is launching their an online service next month. They're gonna charge $7.99 a month for unlimited listening (we assume one PC at a time), but if you already subscribe to XM they'll give you a discounted rate of $3.99 per. Buying a Dell computer next month will get you a free trial subscription to XM Radio Online. Getting satellite radio over the Internet does sorta eliminate one of its main appeals (that, um, you get it by satellite), but we definitely dig the whole commercial-free radio thing.
