    must be a fake ..its not possible otherwise ppl would not spend 3000-4000 and get it..and instead everyone would download it..
    the link u must have seen can be recorded programs from WORLD SPACE RADIO STATION...
    and if any case what u ve seen is true..then its not legal..

    world space radio is a satelite radio. you also need a subscription to listen to it.

    or may be something like net radio. I mean, a person who has subscribed to WorldSpace radio connects to the satellites and gets it in to his pc thru a Line-in and then uses the Shoutcast DNS or something similar to broadcast this to other users thru net radio. Illegal definitely, but possible.

    @rohan:
    That may be possible but he would need to keep his PC ON all the time and I don't think he would do tht. He is totally a fraud person.

    i think worldspace is for the non techie people who dont know or dont want to setup pc's to get wired for radio.
    And also not everyone is on a high speed ( atleast 256Kbps) connection.
    yes..one can enjoy internet radio on modem speed ..but ur radio station choices will then be limited and there is always some or the other kind of packet losses in dial up conf.

    Anyways...have any of u people tried worldspace...how is it ??
