Default Multi-User Internet Streaming Now Live


Today SIRIUS unveiled a new capability that allows multiple-receiver subscribers to have multiple online streaming accounts. Subscribers can enable multiple streaming access by visiting the Manage Your Account section on the SIRIUS homepage. The option will only be available to subs with more than one active radio.

The username your have used in the past to Manage your Account online should be your Master account. Each additional radio in your account should have the option to add an Internet Radio username. These additional accounts will be labeled as Service accounts and only be used to access the Internet Radio service. The Master account should be the only account able to view account information in the Manage Your Account section of SIRIUS’ website.

The upgrade comes as SIRIUS prepares to launch Howard Stern programming online.

The authentication for some of the external players (SIRIUS Yahoo! Widget, etc.) may be broken in prepararation for a more secure streaming environment to broadcast Stern’s show.

I image they actaully have lowered the number of simultaneous logins to be one per username. Also, if this were the case, then the number of back-to-back logins throught the day should no longer matter. I should be able to login 20 times for 10 minutes each if I wanted to... but I am not sure if that will be the way the new login system will work.

This should work out pretty good.. I've wanted multiple login IDs for a while anyway.

I do think we're going to see a new market of selling the accessory IDs to Stern fans for a fee smaller than 12.95 a month however.

I had not thought about that one droobie, but you're right. The seperation between Master account and Service account allows a safe way to re-sell this access to others. That just puts a whole new twist on giving out a password to stream IMO.

This is not really a good thing.

I am SURE I could find a friend who sits at his computer in the morning, and tell him for 5 a month I'd give him one of my FOUR passwords. I'd only need two max a day anyway.

That makes sense if they allow simultaneous logins. I'm not sure if anyone knows the details on that yet. But if they do allow simultaneous logins, I am not sure I'd give one of my IDs out to a friend. I am paying to get the service...why should I give others a free ride?

You have to go into your account and setup logins for each radio...your prevoius master account won't log you into the online streaming...just into your account

Tried this and works fine...Also Yahoo Widget still works with the new logins

Couldn't Sirius shut off your access to Internet streaming for all your accounts if you were stupid enough to do that?

None of my third party programs work since I went into my account and added a username and password on my second receiver. Yahoo Widget and stream_ON give me bad username/password messages. SiriuCE and SiriusWM5 on my pocket pc just don't work. The regular Sirius player works fine.
