    Satellite Radio Rental?

    Does anyone know if one can rent a satellite radio? I have no interest in buying one for long-term use, but I'd like one for catching Reds on Radio when I'm on vacation.

    Any help from you guys would be great.

    I don't know about rentals, but it sounds like a business opportunity for someone in the Cincinnati area that has an extra radio lying around.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    some rental cars come with it - of course that would require you to stay in the car throughout vacation
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I've got an extra one, but alas, the antenna is bad, or I'd let you have it. Heck, go to Wal-Mart and buy a $20.00 special, they have a bare-bone radio called The Sportscaster, activate it for a month, and afterwards give it to a friend or family member.

    I just ordered an XM Roady this week for $25 from Amazon. The service can be month-to-month, so the financial commitment is minimal for a 1-month subscription. That's almost as cheap as a rental.

    Thanks guys! That's invaluable information. Didn't know you could get one so cheap or that you could subscribe on a monthly basis.

    Once I get the $20 Wal-Mart special, how do I subscribe?

    You can go to xmradio.com and enter your information to subscribe. It will ask for your radio ID number you find on channel 0 and then it usually activates within about 15 minutes. You can either do that or call XM to subscribe.
