xm

We heard before that XM were going video with Digital Fountain, but they turned around and showed us by announcing their future video rollout plans to use On2's TrueMotion VP6.2 video compression technology. It still rocks the cached-data broadcasting, so going offline won't be as painful; they're aiming the system, of course, at in-car playback to backseat viewers (you know, the kind who constantly kick the back of the seat and ask, "Are we there yet?"), but we don't have any specific programming details yet. Hopefully XM will speed it up a bit on this one and catch up to the small lead Sirius has on their video plans right now.
