Satellite Radio company Sirius XM plans to roll out an iPhone App in the second quarter of 2009.
The Sirius iPhone App would be available to the 19 million Sirius XM subscribers and to the 7 million iPhone users in the US. As the radio service will also be available through Wifi it will also be available on the iPod touch.
An important factor for the success of the Sirius XM radio on the iPhone will be the pricing model.
Serius XM Radio sold 40% stake recently to Liberty Media to avoid debt problems.
