    When they say at an added cost, do they mean in the BoXM package, or as a totally separate package? This could get as confusing as cable TV...

    I'm hoping they just incorporate it into the existing package, perhaps that's too much to hope for.

    I'm thinking it will be added to the "Best of XM" package. Orbitcast did an interview with "SIRIUS corporate" and they asked:

    Question: Why isn't the MLB on the Best of XM package for Sirius subscribers?

    Answer: We would have liked to provided the MLB for our Sirius subscribers, but have not reached an agreement at this time. We continue to be hopeful that the MLB will be part of the package in the future.

    I'll get best of XM, if they add MLB.
     
  6. I'll get BOXM if they add it too. Until then, absolutely not.

    I can't think of anything more boring than listening to:
    "High and outside. 2 and 1.............................. Shop at your local Krogers for savings.... Fastball strike 2................................ "

    For 5 hours.....

    But, for those of you that want it, I hope you get it because Best Of XM offers nothing without it.

    I see where you're coming from. I wasn't always a big baseball fan, but fantasy baseball makes it more exciting.
     
  10. I've always felt that a good baseball radio announcer makes it better than watching it on TV. I'm an old school baseball guy that listened on the radio when I was a kid.

    I have bashed the BestofXM, but if they add MLB I would add it in a heartbeat. (of course I would also have to upgrade my unit as the S50 won't get the Bestof...:()

    Given that the included NFL with the Best of Sirius package (although usually only home broadcast), it would seem logical to do the reverse with baseball.

    My two favorite things to listen to during long drives:

    1. Howard Stern
    2. Angels games

    If they add MLB to the package I might consider replacing the broken Sirius radio in my truck and adding BOXM.

    I think MLB will be on "Best of XM" next year?

    Even if they do add it, I don't see myself signing up until next April at the earliest. MLB radio won't offer a whole lot for the next 5 months...

    I agree, but the only reason I signed up for "Best of XM", I enjoy listening to some NBA games and plus I finally have my hockey back after seeing it gone for couple of years!

    No baseball is probably the best spot you can listen to on the radio. NBA and NHL move very fast and you have to know your players if you are listening to those games. It's much easier to follow on tv. But as far as NFL and MLB are concerned, you can easily listen to those games on the radio and be able to follow it. It's a convenience to people if they can't watch on tv. There would be a ton of Best of XM purchases though once this deal gets sealed.
