At International CES last week AT&T announced the impending release of CruiseCast, a service that will make 22 satellite video channels available in cars, along with 20 additional radio channels. AT&T developed the product along with RaySat, Inc., a maker of small satellite antennas.
The product will be sold, beginning this spring, by auto dealers as an add-on, as well as by other mobile electronics dealers.
"We will deliver an unprecedented capability for people to enjoy live television in their vehicles," AT&T's vice president of business development, Sean O'Leary, said as part of the announcement. "AT&T CruiseCast furthers AT&T's mission to enable people to access the content and applications they want and need, whenever and wherever they may be."
