Are most all of the Reds game broadcast on XM Radio? If so, what is the quickest way to subscribe? What do I have to purchase?
Sorry, but I am a total rookie when it comes to knowledge of XM. I have purchased MLB Radio before, a couple of different seasons actually, but was not pleased.
So here's hoping XM is an answer that would allow me to listen to the games that are not televised. . .???
Any info will be greatly appreciated! :)

I'd hit your local Best Buy, or other electronics store and pick up a kit there. Are you wanting to listen at home? If so, let the associate know that so they can get you a home kit.

xmradio.com will also be helpful in finding some basics.

It'd about 15 a month, though you can get discounts for signing up and paying for a year in advance.

Yes, all Reds regular season games are on, though some will be through the opposing team broadcast as I believe they are still only playing the home teams broadcast and not the road team. In other words, when the Reds are in LA you'll hear Vin Scully instead of Marty.

HERE (http://www.xmradio.com/schedule/sport/get_mlb_schedule.jsp) is a link to the XM schedule of games this week. You get all the games, and you also get WLW radio....(but not their Reds broadcast unless the Reds are the home team....)
