    Listening to Reds' Games on an Android Device?

    Hi all,

    When the Reds have afternoon games and I'm at work, it's tough for me to listen because 1). the company I work for is not too liberal with non-business internet usage, so streaming online isn't an option and 2). the small boombox I have at work doesn't get very good reception inside the office. Unless I'm missing something obvious, the only other thing I can think of is to listen to a stream on my Android phone. Does anyone know of an application that gets a simulcast or some other way to listen this way? I'm fairly sure that the iheartradio app isn't an option because I believe Reds' games are blacked out online/via a phone app; if that's not the case, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    You could probably listen via a subscription, but I don't think you will be able to do so for free. At least legally.

    Are we talking like the MLB at Bat app for Android? If so, I believe I had considered that option but it was too expensive to be able to listen to the relatively small amount of weekday afternoon games the Reds have. I can't remember the price but I recall it being enough that I'd just get by with the subpar radio reception I get.

    I have an iPhone, and for what it's worth MLB at bat 2010 cost $14.99, so I would assume the same price for 2011.

    Not sure if that affects your decision one way or the other, but just throwing that out there.

    The MLB at bat app for my iphone lead me to canceling extra innings this year.

    I get to listen to all the games in the late afternoon while at work, head home, spend time with my kids, then watch every pitch put into play of the Reds, and any other game that night. In an hour I can watch half a dozen games.

    Saves money and time. Great app and worth the $15.

    Was $12 two years ago so it may go up again in price for 2011.

    Yep. I subscribe to the MLB At Bat program on my BlackBerry. For $14.,95 I get the game audio and I can stream it to my Ford through Sync or just listen on earphones at work. That's less than $3 per month and I consider it a deal. And on my Torch, battery life is not a problem. When I was on vacation at Myrtle Beach, I listened to west coast games and never lost battery even after using the phone for business all day. Of course, when at work or in the car, you can always plug it in,

    I occasionally have that problem with a few other sports teams when I have plans that prevent me from watching a game live. It usually doesn't apply to the Reds, though, because the afternoon weekday games are rarely, if ever, televised in Cincinnati.

    'Bout all of 'em will be this year, as we have so many national games, and FSO has to fill its 145-game quota.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    That is some great news right there. I've said all along that FSN would be smart to televise more day games anyway. A lot more people work from home these days. I personally go into the office 2x per week and work from home 3x per week.

    Boss,

    Try downloading the "TuneIn Radio" app. I'm not sure if you'll actually be able to get MLB games (I'm sure MLB locks down on those pretty hard), but you can basically connect to a large amount of radio stations for any city in the country. So you could try the Reds broadcast in Cincinnati (probably blocked), Columbus, Dayton, etc. PM me if you want some more details/explanation. I listen to WVU games all the time on it, and the quality is incredible (slight delay though).

    I actually have that app and I'm hoping I'm able to pick up a station that broadcasts Reds' games where it's not blocked. I guess I won't know if that will work until the games start.

    Yeah, I'd imagine you can give it a solid test run during the spring training games though.

    I use the atbat on my iPhone. It is well worth it. The information you can get box scores actual game time stats and you can listen to all the games of any team. I love it. Well worth the money. I would be lost without it. Highly recommend it.

    Re: Listening to Reds' Games on an Android Device?

    MLB At Bat is not as expensive ($14.99 for the year) as I remember it being. My only holdup with that is I suspect I may be blacked out in the Cincinnati area since the specifications state that it's subject to blackout. Can anyone who has it confirm if that is the case?
