We have to admit to the guilty pleasure of in-car satellite TV, via a TracVision A5 setup that seems to play HGTV exclusively. Now Chrysler is jumping on the bandwagon with satellite provider Sirius, which says it will start streaming three channels of programming into Chrysler minivans for the 2008 model year. To start it’s strictly kiddie fare – SpongeBob and the like—and the Sirius setup will run about $2000 plus $20 a month once you take the required DVD player setup. Whether the Sirius system will work as well as other setups, since it has smaller antennae, or if the streamlined channel lineup will be worth the charge remains to be seen. We’ll be observing from the back seat—it is Nicktoons time, after all.
