Audible, a provider of digitally delivered spoken-word audio, and XM Satellite Radio have announced an exclusive, multifaceted relationship. In 2006 Audible and XM will introduce the first portable, handheld satellite radio devices that are capable of playing both the XM service as well as Audible's spoken-word content, which can be downloaded from the Web into the devices' memory. With the launch of these "AudibleReady/XM" devices, XM subscribers will be able to expand their listening experience by purchasing audiobooks and other content from Audible.

In addition to these new products, Audible will offer popular XM talk programs via the Audible Web site this year, beginning with The Bob Edwards Show and Opie & Anthony. XM programs will join the more than 45 regularly recurring audio subscriptions available for downloads to users of AudibleReady digital audio devices.

Also this year, XM will produce a new Audible audiobook program for broadcast on XM Satellite Radio that will consist of features, interviews, and news focusing on the rich world of audiobooks and other spoken-word listening. Audible will co-executive produce the program and offer it for download at their website.
