Mel and the boys from Sirius have been busy this week at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Sirius' big annoucement this week was the introduction of the "Sirius Backseat TV." Backseat is going to be a TV service fed via Sirius satellites to you car with programming geared toward children. The service is dues to be available in cars as soon as the spring of this year. The Unit, The SiriusConnect SC-V1 Audio/Video Tuner, (which I assume will just be called the "SiriusConnect") will allows listener in the front set to listen to sirius radio broadcasts as passengers in the back can listen to the audio from whatever program they are watching on the "Backseat TV." No real information was given out other than that, except it is due to be available by Spring of this year.
