WorldSpace to launch PC card version of satellite radio

WorldSpace, a direct-to-receiver satellite audio service, has developed a PC card version, with the help of which a PC can be converted into a WorldSpace set. The price of the PC card has not been fixed yet as the company is waiting for government classification on the issue.

According to Mr. M Sebastian, Director, Business Development, WorldSpace, if this card is fed into the PC, it will start functioning like WorldSpace satellite radio. Elaborating further, Mr. Sabastian said, the PC card is an added facility, and cannot replace the radio set, mainly because these satellite radio sets can be carried to any place, and are very popular for parties and picnics.

Mr. Sebastian said that there’s no move to hike the prices of radio set in near future. These sets are available between Rs 4,990 and Rs 11,990. However, the subsidy, which is being offered now, may not last forever.
