New York, NY -- Sirius Satellite Radio, the satellite radio broadcaster, today announced its service is now available in eleven states, as part of its accelerated nationwide roll out plan.

"Consumers can now get Sirius in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming,'' said Guy Johnson, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, for Sirius. "We are executing our accelerated roll out schedule and plan to activate an additional seven states by the end of the month.''

Last month, Sirius announced that it was moving up its nationwide service availability date by one month, to July 1 instead of August 1, and that it was increasing the scope of that acceleration to include entire states instead of just individual cities.

Sirius-ready receivers can be purchased at national retail stores such as Circuit City and Best Buy, as well as local car and audio retailers.
