Yesterday afternoon I had a few minutes in the office before dinner and decided to to tackle a task I thought was only for people with a lot more technical skills. I’m a diehard Sirius Radio Howard Stern listener. Until recently I’d been using two receivers at $10/mo each to listen at home and the office. This was wasteful so I cancelled the extra subscriptions. When I’m near a computer I stream Sirius over the Internet. The problem I had was there’s no official Sirius client for iPhone, BlackBerry or Windows Mobile that gives access to all channels.
My solution was to use– a free service that streams audio and video remotely from your Internet connected Windows PC (there is NO Mac version). To use Orb you create an account, and download the to setup your Sirius radio stream. This is all free except you MUST have a paid Sirius radio account with online access. The setup was remarkably easy – you can watch my (admittedly grainy poor) video that shows the service in use. To set it up on your BlackBerry – see the instructions in the link below which I used last night and found to be the most complete on the Internet at explaining the steps in detail.
