In 1992, AMSC established a unit called the American Mobile Radio Corporation dedicated to developing a satellite-based digital radio service; this was spun off as XM Satellite Radio Holdings, Inc. The satellite service was officially launched on September 25, 2001. While the satellite receiver radio service was its primary product, XM operated several audio and data services, and advertising.
In addition, XM used to broadcast local weather and traffic conditions in its larger markets. To receive satellite radio programming, a customer was required to purchase a receiver. With a service commitment, it was possible to get a simple receiver for free.
