Oprah on the road? Chrysler offers live TV service


AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Chrysler Group LLC says it will begin offering customers a television service in their vehicles featuring up to 20 channels of live TV.

Starting in December, Chrysler buyers can purchase the service, called Flo TV, that offers popular cable channels like Fox News, MSNBC and Comedy Central.

The cost: $629 plus an installation fee. A one-year subscription service is included. A spokesman says the company is still negotiating over the subscription fee after one year, but packages could start as low as $9 a month.

Distracted drivers need not worry: The TV system would be integrated into vehicles' DVD system, which has drop-down screens viewable only to passengers.
