Huh! I didn't realize that Volvo had lined up with one of these guys. The other one is XM Satellite Radio. It's an interesting concept, like Cable in your car radio. Sounds like Sirius is lining up some (pardon the pun) serious programming for their network. I've been thinking about a new Volvo anyway, maybe I'll have to pick myself up an XC or something when they become available.
