Default Satellite radio



It was supposed to replace conventional radio, but high costs and less than perfect service saw satellite radio struggle to live up to its potential.

Last week, satellite radio WorldSpace announced closing down of its India operations. Broadcast of services would stop at midnight of Thursday (December 31). In a communication to its subscribers, WorldSpace said, "on December 31, 2009, the WorldSpace satellite radio broadcast service will be terminated for all customers serviced from India. This action is an outgrowth of the financial difficulties faced by WorldSpace India's parent company, WorldSpace Inc, which has been under bankruptcy protection since October 2008."
