Sirius to offer TV service in Chrysler cars Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. has revealed that it will offer a backseat television service for DaimlerChrysler cars and minivans later this year. The company said that three live child-themed channels would be available in 2008 model year cars in the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge lines. Sirius and rival XM have proposed a merger which is now waiting on regulatory approval.
The company had planned to offer a service like this since 2004 but had to work it out with content companies and manufacturers first. The system will cost about $470, which includes the first year of service, when packaged with Chrysler's rear seat entertainment system in new cars. Customers must subscribe to the Sirius Satellite Radio service.

The service will cost $7 per month on top of the $13 per month fee for the radio service after the first year. Channels on the service include Viacom Inc.'s Nickelodeon, Walt Disney Co.'s Disney Channel and Time Warner Inc.'s Cartoon Network.
