U.S. Telematics has an affiliation and revenue sharing agreement with Sirius for Sirius Backseat TV, a live rear-seat entertainment service featuring three channels of kids’ TV programming.

Voyager from U.S. Telematics provides live, downloaded wireless mobile internet protocol TV (IPTV) and audio programming for rear passenger vehicle “infotainment.” Voyager technology includes a mobile WiFi Internet hotspot to enable online computer use in the car as well as DVD, movies, TV, Xbox and other computer games.

U.S. Telematics CEO Howard Leventhal said the Sirius deal supplements audio programming available on Voyager. “Our plan is to technically provision Voyager to output Sirius’ music programming and offer Sirius subscriptions to Voyager users, so that kids in the rear car seat and parents in the front seat can all be 'piped-in.'”
