XM Radio Plans Controversial Traffic Service: "XM Satellite Radio said on Thursday it will launch an instant traffic and weather service on March 1, prompting established U.S. radio broadcasters to denounce the move as a 'back-door attempt' to skirt regulations.

"On its Web site, XM said its new service would offer subscribers in-depth, up-to-date information about road and weather conditions in 21 major metropolitan markets plus several interstate corridors nationwide."

"'XM Satellite Radio's announcement today to provide weather and traffic reports to select major markets represents an appalling back-door attempt to bypass the Federal Communication Commission's intent to limit satellite radio to a national service only,' Fritts said."
