Earnings Brief

Sirius Satellite Radio said Wednesday that its losses narrowed and revenue jumped as subscribers flocked to its service.

During the quarter, Sirius added about 441,000 net subscribers for a total of 5.1 million. The cost of acquiring each customer decreased 23% to $114 from $149 on lower average subsidy rates as the company continued to reduce manufacturing and chip-set costs.

Both Sirius and larger rival XM Satellite Radio offer monthly subscriptions for $13 a month. XM reported upbeat quarterly earnings earlier this week.
