So Long FCC, Hello Pornography

With Howard Stern's recent migration to satellite radio for a meager 100 million, people are starting to take notice of the world of satellite radio. But why the migration? According to Stern, "The Super Bowl did us in."

With the FCC starting to crack down on the growing salacious content in the various broadcast media, radio broadcasters are realizing that if they want to keep sex selling, they need a new marketplace. Enter satellite radio, and XM 205.

XM Radio, one of the two satellite radio companies, already has a Playboy channel (XM 205) in its premium channel lineup. For an extra $2.99 a month in addition to your regular XM Subscription (they are waving the $4.99 activation fee right now) you too can get in on:

Playboy Radio - XM 205

This isn't your Grandma's radio! Based on Playboy TV's hit show Night Calls, join your hosts, Juli and Tiffany, for a romp on the wild side. Sexcetera reporters cover the sensual world with captivating stories on the world of sex. Experience Judge Julie's unique brand of justice on Sex Court, 60 sizzling minutes of erotic fiction on Sexy Stories, and great advice from the Playboy Advisor. Order Playboy Radio today by activating online or calling Listener Care at 1-800-XMRADIO (1-800-967-2346).

And of course, just like with cable, because these are subscription services, the FCC regulation of obscene content is minimal at best. Not to mention the fact that no one is complaing.

According to an FCC report complaints of indecency are on the rise, but there were only 36 total complaints against cable programming last year, a number that stands at 28 so far this year. And satellite radio? The FCC doesn't even track it.
