XM pacts with Alltel

20 channels will be sent to customers' phones

XM Satellite Radio has announced its first wireless partnership, with Alltel Wireless.

The nation’s largest radio satcaster and one of the top five wireless phone companies said that 20 of XM’s more than 170 channels will be sent to the phones of Alltel customers willing to pay $7.99 a month for the extra service. A regular subscription to XM — which costs $12.99 per month — is not required.

Channels include some of XM’s most popular, such as the 70s, 80s and 90s decades channels, and others featuring top 20 hits, new alternative rock, hip-hop/R&B hits, indie rock, blues, new country hits and Latin pop hits.

“XM will deliver data to make it possible to view the song title, artist and album while listening on a variety of compatible handsets,” the two companies said in a joint statement.
