Sirius to offer backseat satellite TV on Chryslers

Sirius Backseat TV

Sirius on Thursday unveiled full details of Sirius Backseat TV, the company's new satellite TV service for cars. The technology will let subscribers watch TV from three child-oriented channels -- Nickelodeon, The Cartoon Network, and The Disney Channel -- either on the rear TV screens of equipped vehicles as well as on a MyGig-compatible front TV while the vehicle is stopped. Customers will have the choice of listening to satellite radio at the front when TV plays in the back, Sirius says.

The service will debut first as a $470 factory-installed option for 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan (pictured) and Chrysler Town & Country, each of which will get a free one-year subscription to both the radio and TV services when the minivans release in the spring. Other Chryslers will also receive the upgrade, and an aftermarket version is also set to launch in the summer, according to Sirius. Subscriptions outside of the special deal will cost $7 per month in addition to the typical $13 access fee. [via OrbitCast]

    This tech seems looks great, very sleek design. Hope it would add a roomy filing inside my car, anyway, my car has lots of cargo room for a coupe.

    Quick and handles great. Variable shift transmission is smooth and efficient.

    24 valve V6 has lots of power, and great pick up when it's time to pass.

    Handles like few others. With the handling package and the 17s (with quality tires), this thing corners, and takes the curves beautifully, at almost any speed.

    Seats are very well bolstered and comfortable.

    Just as long as I pick and choose my driveways, the low front end isn't a problem. If it won't go up the driveway, I park and walk. You can't always have your cake and eat too. The sleek, low front end comes at a price, but it's one you can deal with.

    Lots of compliments, these cars are rare where I live. Custom floor mats style is something this car doesn't lack.

    Nicely appointed. Great features (like "one touch open" on the moon roof), great stereo in mine. The woodgrain package adds a nice touch of class to the already luxurious and well thought out interior.

    Black on tan leather with 17' wheels means this car is as classy as almost anything else on the road with 2 doors around where I live.

    Overall, very fun to drive, loves the backroads, great fuel economy on the highway. Would have a driveway full of them, if I had a big enough driveway (and if there were others around here). A great car.
