Sirius Backseat Video

  1. I am guessing I am one of the few people here with Sirius Backseat Video. Its a great service and comes in handy when going on long rides with the kids.

    However I am nervous with the merger and all the changes that the video service will be discontinued in the future, which would suck as it cost me a lot to have two televisions wired into my truck.

    Does anyone have any idea what Sirius is going to do with the Video service? I would love to see them add a news channel to the lineup.

    Anyone else with SBV?

    I've never actually seen that. How's the picture quality??
  3. The video quality is ok, good enough for the kids, it was better before but a few months ago the compresion seemed to increase so that you can see some blocks in the picture if you look hard enough.

    I sm going to wait until Sirius XM starts broadcasting ESPN, Playboy and Howard TV. My kids drive me around while I sit in the backseat.

    I'm with yea, but replace the kids with a wife or girlfriend? :p j/k The wife or girlfriend will probably drive the car to an object.

    Only Kids shows, at the moment. Probably will stay that way for now.

    I remember seeing a few commercials for the Chrysler minivan with the Sirius Backseat Video. Is there any other way to get it OEM? I think there is an aftermarket receiver.
  10. Yeah I got the aftermarket one, it works well.

    I do wish the kids could listen to Sirius via the TV, that would make it better. :)

    I was considering buying on for my truck for my little girl. I would have to buy moniters on top of having them installed and the equipment from Sirius. I just figured on buying a $300 DVD player and letting her watch DVDs when we are on a trip, and come out ahead.

    I'm a big fan of Backseat TV. I've only used it in testing situations, but I couldnt imagine having a better medium to keep kids entertained. The programming will expand,but more along the lines of family friendly service.
