I bought a car in December with XM on it, so I am cancelling Sirius and will get a plug n play unit for the office, so MLB for me!

I really wish Sirius could get MLB for their subs. But MLB is a very hard organization to deal with :(


You won't see MLB on Srius unless MLB gets more money.

That's not what MLB.COM says (LINK)

All At Bat 2010 purchasers can access one LIVE game each day of the regular season; those with MLB.TV subscriptions can access a complete schedule of LIVE games (All live games are subject to blackout restrictions, see www.MLB.tv for details). At Bat 2010 delivers one free streaming game each day.

So you have to also add MLB.TV ($25 last year) but you still have blackouts.

I'm looking at a vehicle that only has Sirius as an option. Our dealer talked with a SiriusXM rep that said that Sirius will be using the NBA channels for MLB play-by-play when there wasn't an NBA game.

Any chance of this being true? It sounded suspicious to all of us that MLB would allow the NBA to supersede its programming.

Also I would have expected an announcement from SiriusXM when Sirius radios could play MLB.

I'd just put in an XM after-market radio in place of the Sirius module but then (I assume) the interface to the NavTraffic would be broken, not to mention the warranty.

For the At bat app from MLB, the one "live" game refers to one free live video game per day the and blackout info also refers to video only.

You can listen to all of the games with no blackouts and you get to choose the home or away announcers. For $14.99 you can't beat this deal anywhere. I have it and it is great.

Thanks for the clarification. That certainly makes it more appealing and worthwhile. Now if I can only figure out how to listen to the day games at work.

It was probably the one app I used the most last year besides facebook LOL

MLB at bat is great, especially with MLB.tv, which is also very worth the money (way better than Extra Innings on D* IMO). At bat has all home and away radio feeds which is what Sirius XM should have. I'm probly gonna switch to XM eventually so I can get a MiRGE but not until my current Sirius subscription is done at the end of this year.

And you better hurry the Mirge radios are know longer being made so you better jump on it.And on Mlb,tv and Directv extra innings, Mlb,tv is cheaper but you are wrong the PQ is in know ways better than Directv HD PQ, YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET.:D

Well, That pretty much does it. I will not be renewing my 5 subs. I have several internet radios and will be using them plus I subscribed to MLB.tv and the Atbat app.
Between the no MLB and having to listen to replays of World Cup Skiing on Sporting News Radio I just can't do it anymore.

OK. I lied. I renewed my subs at the $77.00 rate. Now damn it I want MLB play-by-play on the Sirius side.

If by "Sirius XM will be gone" you mean the current corporation, you could be right (depending on how the future financing works out). Sirius XM, the *service* isn't going anywhere. They have satellites, ground stations, content contracts and 20 million customers giving them basically $20M A MONTH. A bankruptcy would hose the shareholders and bondholders but the satellites would continue to operate under the auspices of whomever would buy the assets.


Exactly. That's what happened with Iridium, the satellite phone company.

The original company went bankrupt and 6 billions dollars worth of satellite infrastructure were bought by new investors, including the US government, for tens of millions of dollars.

The original investors got a raw deal but the service is still available years later.

So I guess that still isn't available :-). I'm looking for an option for my mother -- is MLB At Bat on the iPad essentially the same thing?

MLB At Bat is great, you get all of the radio broadcasts (both home & away), plus selected TV broadcasts, stats and more. XM does not offer both home & away feeds for regular season games, so At Bat beats XM in that regard. At Bat is free with a subscription to MLB.TV Premium or $14.99 w/o.

Has anyone had a problem like this?
I was a member of the class action suit re XMS. I dropped the service before the suit began. I was awarded one month free, which I used.

I only use the service at my cabin. which is in the middle of nowhere, WV.

Recently I tried to renew the service and was told that my account had been turned over to a collection agency. I would have to deal with them before I could renew.

I thought that was what the suit was about, re over billing and charges made with no merit. I haven't called the collection agency as yet. I was hoping someone else has had this issue and could offer some advice.

Thanks....lmac
