Publish date:

Sirius XM says it will come out with an interoperable radio this spring.

With the aptly named Mirge, consumers can get all the channels of each service. The unit will have a list price of just under $250.

The company says the interoperable radio will feature a programming guide, allowing the user to see a real-time programming guide and view the current channel plus three other channels at the same time.

You'll also be able to pause, rewind and replay up to 60 minutes of live Sirius or XM programming.
