I was looking at Sirius and XM today trying to figure out which to buy. It pretty much hangs on which will have MLB games. Does anyone know which will carry the games?

XM carries MLB. Too bad, because Sirius has pretty much everything else now.

Makes the decision very tough, but I'd probably go with XM.

I just got XM cause I got a deal where if I sign up for 6 months at 13 a month I get the equiptment all free which is nice.


XM has MLB, NHL, College Basketball, and College Football.

2 ESPN Stations, A Fox Sports Station
3 Comedy Stations
CNN
Foxnews
MSNBC

And another 100+ channels of music.

I woudl have prefered Sirius because I think they play more good jam band music. But I dig XM too
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I have Sirius and just listened to XM on my last flight. XM has Sporting New Radio and Fox Sports along with ESPN Radio and ESPN News which is nice. Plus XM has MLB. I think everything else is pretty similar...I got Sirius because it carries the NFL...I am rather disappointed it does not have more sports stations or MLB though.

I really like XM myself. Of course I listen to alot of sports talk radio, and really don't like Stern. But not only does XM have all the MLB games, it even has all the spring training games, and also a fantasy baseball show... ;-D

I'm in the process of making a purchase myself. As a baseball fan I really want XM, but as a 15 year listener to Howard Stern I need to get Sirius. In the end I think I am going to be getting both, one for the home and the other for on the go. ;-D

I've just bought XM because it does carry MLB games...I'd rather have any baseball game I want any night than which football game I want one day a week..
