The Sirius Backseat TV allows you to receive family programming 24/7 from channels Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network Mobile, right from your car,truck or boat.
Tests on this unit reveals that it loads slightly quicker than expected and has decent picture quality for the size screen used. You cannot watch full shows from Cartoon Network Mobile, only shows 2-8 mins in duration and on a selected basis. All other channels act as normal. I tested it with a rear-view mirror monitor, but a more traditional application maybe more beneficial.
The Unit’s Display is sufficient and the double remote feature is clever. The rear seat TV is controlled by either a small display panel up-front or an oversized remote built for small, apple juice covered hands.
The BackSeat TV can offer more than ever expected with a Sirius tuner. The ability to stream TV over Sirius’s satellites is beyond compare with most other media. It remains cost efficient and satisfying to the general user. All you HDTV fans be weary it does not come in 1080i or 720p. You can expect to have quality sound and video with the added standard Sirius radio bandwidth and reception.
Imagine never again have to worry about entertaining the kids in the car and you can still listen to your favorite SIRIUS music, news or entertainment station.
Many 2008-2009 Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler models will have the Sirius Backseat TV as a factory option, so check with your local dealership if you are in the market for a new vehicle.
