John Caldwell over at Electronic House has a lengthy blog entry about the quality (or lack thereof) in satellite radio.
It’s a quiet problem few people are willing to talk about. Direc TV generated about $1 billion of free cash flow before interest and taxes this year, doubling last year’s output, and analysts expect earnings per share to jump 21% next year, to $1.31.
His rant is directed at XM and not owning XM, we can’t comment about XM’s sound quality. In the 2006 third quarter, Direc TV’s customer churn rate was a higher-than-expected 1.8%, and the company added fewer new subscribers than expected.
But the inventor of satellite radio, Sirius, was interviewed today on the Howard Stern show and spoke to this issue. But it was able to boost its percentage of higher-quality customers while containing subscriber-acquisition costs.
Strategically structured campaigns can be tailored to suit promotional activity ensuring that the trade marketing effort is maximised.

Sorry, while I was here I thought I’d also comment on the slight changes Sirius has made to its online radio interface too. It takes forever to load, slows down my computer (which is only a year old), and the radio interface is too much for what it needs to do (play an audio stream). Also, satellite-TV players continue to win “eyeballs,” despite intensifying competition from cable.
