SiriusXM has debuted its second “Sirius 2.0” receiver, the Lynx.
The satcaster says the 2.0 refers to new features such as time-shifting and storage, as well as the ability to receive an expanded channel lineup that includes a new suite of Spanish-language programming.
The company characterizes 2.0 as an upgrade and evolution of SiriusXM’s satellite- and Internet-delivered service that will eventually span hardware, software, audio and data services. The Lynx allows for new features to be added through software updates.
Lynx also offers SiriusXM 2.0 features for listening to SiriusXM Internet Radio via Wi-Fi networks at home, office or accessible hotspot.
Radio World reported SiriusXM released its first 2.0 radio, Edge, in October.
