Satellite TV For Cars

from the driver-distraction?--what's-that? dept

The growing popularity of back-seat automobile television systems may get an even bigger boost by adding the ability to recieve satellite TV in the car. A company that provides a similar service for boats and RVs is expanding the business to offer DirecTV into cars. Opinions are mixed on how quickly people will adopt such systems, but some feel that the type of people who currently have such systems to keep the kids quiet in the back will like having live television as well. The article mentions in passing that this same service could be used to offer internet access to cars at some point in the future, which seems like a much more intriguing idea.
