XM ON MLB

Postby Lofunzo » Tue Feb 15, 2005 5:09 pm

Well, today is the day that MLB started up on XM Radio. I must say that I love it so far. Every day, they have a 1 hour fantasy segment from 2-3 and then Dibble and Kennedy have a show from 3-6, which has been great so far. They even have Canseco on and are hoping for Pete Rose today. Not a bad start for the 1st day. I will post the schedule below but if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I loved XM before they got MLB but love it even more now. You get a ton of ST games as well as every regular season game. This is great for transplanted fans. If anyone wants any information, just ask. I either know the answer or I can find out. If anyone wants to know about equipment, pricing, comparing between Sirius, etc., just ask. I am not affiliated with any of them. I just love XM. Here's the schedule:

My next car will definitely come with XM, and I may not even wait that long. The portable units are becoming very reasonably priced. The MLB channel will probably push me over the edge in the very near future.

I agree. Keep in mind that if you get it factory installed, you are probably talking about $600 minimum. There are much cheaper options out there. ;-)

Canseco just walked into the studio. :-o

I actually love my setup. While there are units that go anywhere (MyFi), I have a separate setup in the home and in the car. Both setups cost me about $200 total. :-)

Yeah I know what you mean...and I'm not sure if I'll go that route of having it factory installed. Probably not...but either way I seriously want it. My dad has it in his truck (factory) and it's awesome. The music selection isn't the best...but for sports/news it's untouchable.

I have been giving serious thought to getting a satalite radio...not sure which one yet... :-?

Is the MLB Channel an extra package or does it come with the monthly service.... :-?

It's included in the monthly package. ;-D The only extras are O&A and Playboy. Other than that, you only pay extra for XM Online or additional radios.

If you want to check it out online for free, check this out:

Keep in mind that, for whatever reason, they don't offer every channel during this trial. :-/

slomo.......You don't like the music choices?? 8-o
