for any XM radio subscribers either in the US or, starting a few weeks 
ago, Canada, here is the url to a www site that works with Pocket PC and 
launches WM player so you can listen to the Internet accessible XM radio 
channels (a subset of the full channel set). It would be interesting to 
build a version that works with the N770. From what I can tell,  the www 
site  is downloading an browser app to the PPC which allows  it 
authenticate to the XM radio streaming server with credentials input by 
the user, launches WM Player and points/directs the content stream to 
the player. Here is the url to the www page for the main www xstream xm site


and here is the url to the www page to which to point your PPC browser 
(IFF you have one):


I tested it with a Dell Axim X5 with WIFI and it works fine. If you 
navigate to the www site you will see that there are two speed options.

I assume that the www site is downloading some kind of script to the PPC 
IE. I have no idea at this point of what kind of Digital Rights 
Management lock, if any,  is on the content stream.

What would it take to get a version of a www page that would work with 
the N770?

I should also mention that XM radio has for some time had a free 3 day 
trial of their Internet based service. For anyone who is interested, 
here is the url to that offer:
