Vista, Calif. — Directed Electronics, Inc. announced it will produce the Sirius Sportster, a recently announced Sirius satellite radio plug-and-play receiver that is geared toward sports fans.

The Sportster, unlike other satellite radio receivers, allows users to display the logo of the user’s favorite NFL team on the opening screen, and it offers a “game alert” feature to notify users when a favorite team’s game is on the air.

Directed said it will also distribute Sportster accessories, including a home docking station.The company, which owns the a/d/s/ brand of Home & Architectural speakers, will also supply a Sirius ECHO Wireless Signal Distribution System, which is a two-piece system designed to wirelessly distribute SIRIUS within a home or small office. Directed also distributes two home antennas — exterior and interior — and a SIRIUS DBS Signal Combiner/Splitter for homes with an existing cable or satellite connection.
