Chrysler puts Sirius in back seat
Chrysler Group is the first automaker to offer Sirius Backseat TV. The innovative system will have three channels of live programming from Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and the Cartoon Network.
The system is being rolled out first in the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Caravan minivans but will be expanded soon to the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The system can be combined with a dual DVD that can play different media at the same time, the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System and the unique Swivel ’n Go seat system, to make the ultimate rear-seat entertainment group.
Backseat TV allows passengers to watch TV while front-seat passengers can still listen to Sirius Satellite Radio. Backseat TV is available for $470, which includes the first year of service, when packaged with Chrysler Groups Rear Seat Entertainment System and Sirius Satellite Radio. After that, the service will cost $7 a month in addition to the satellite charge of $12.95 a month.
