    I was wondering it it's possible to stream from CNN.com and watch (listen really cause our eyes should be one the road) and is there a limit on the amount of data that can be pulled before incurring fees or being shut down?

    I think the Tesla will not let you stream Video... for a variety of reasons. Im sure its hackable, but from the factory ... no video.

    You can live stream CNN audio on TuneIn.

    I believe the Tesla browser simply does not support video.

    Can't get XM with panoramic glass roof that's why I was wondering. But the iPhone or iPad is the right way to go and just play it through bluetooth. Would be great for sports while supercharging and watch a game.

    There is always $25 for 5 or 6 months. It's just annoying to have to call in and "cancel" to get it. I've been calling in to get that rate for years.

    The most annoying part is how difficult they make it to cancel.

    Compression and audio quality on XM is awful I miss my NPR Now but I just listen to my local KPCC so I'm happy.
