Posted on April 5th, 2012 by Sonos Staff in News, Products

MLB on SiriusXM

Update: It’s official! SiriusXM subscribers can now tune into live games on Sonos. Queue up channel 934 for all the action.

Great news for Sonos owners: SiriusXM Radio has announced a multi-year agreement with MLB Advanced Media, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, becoming the Official Internet Radio Partner of MLB.com. That means SiriusXM subscribers will be able to stream live radio broadcasts of every Major League Baseball game on Sonos.

Starting in early May, listeners can tune in to all regular season games, as well as the All-Star Game and every Postseason game.  Spring Training games will be available starting next year. Check out the full schedule to find game times for your favorite teams.

    Come on XM Canada – get on board with this and SONOS!!!!

  • Brian

    When I access the sonos app and go to sports play by play it’s all nfl channels on Sirius. This is the most recent update – how do I get the baseball streams? I have no problem accessing them on the Sirius app…

    I must be missing something obvious.

       Hi Brian – You should be able to access all MLB coverage on Channel 209. If that’s not showing up, please give our support team a shout.

  • Michelle

    I pay for an mlb.com account directly, I don’t have Sirius.  Seems like I should be able to stream from mlb.com.  How can I do that?  

    • http://sonos.com Sonos

      MLB.com is unfortunately not a partner service at this time, but we’re constantly looking to add new services.

      • Michelle

         Seems like if one pay for an internet service, like mlb.com, it wouldn’t need a partnership for Sonos.  I already pay mlb.com. Why is it not just a matter of me logging in to mlb.com with my id and then streaming it through your speakers.  Either way, your headline is very misleading. 

        • Owen

          This is absolutely correct, and I would appreciate the mods seriously bringing this to the attention of Sonos. I don’t have to partner with Sirius XM to listen to rdio or Spotify, I just log into my accounts. MLB.com audio should be no different. Agreed that this headline is terribly misleading, and it’s disappointing that a premium product like the Sonos uses what is essentially a cop-out excuse in partnering with Sirius. I pay for MLB.com audio, why should I have to pay twice?

  • parker

    I am still unable to see any MLB stations under Play-By-Play stations?  Is an update required or something?  

    I emailed Sonos two days ago and got a message back telling me that you cannot listen to MLB on sonos.  

    • http://sonos.com Sonos

      Not all games are available on Sonos yet, but the MLB station 209 should show up under sports on SiriusXM. If it does not, please contact support.

      • parker.

         I dont see how to tune into station 209. I see MLB Network Radio which appears to be station 89. 

        This is unfortunate that sonos acts like they now have mlb games if you have a siriusxm subscription, since you are only offering a few random games. 

        • http://sonos.com Sonos

          We see MLB Network Radio as channel 209 under SiriusXM > Sports. All games are expected to be available on Sonos in May. Unfortunately, the original announcement we received on the programming had inaccurate information in it, and this article was posted too early as a result.

  • Judith

    I agree with you completely, Michelle.  I have no interest in subscribing to Sirius.  I think this is a major flaw in the Sonos system.

  • slab

    It’s early May. Do we have a more specific ETA?

    • http://sonos.com Sonos

      We expect to see the additions by next week. We’ll make an announcement once the full programming is available.

      • slab

        Any ETA yet? It’s no longer early May…..

  • Roadbiker_2

    I would like access to MLB.com as well.  See what you can do to get this as an application.  Thanks.

  • Willem Kuling

    I live in England and would like to listen to MLB games. Is that possible on SONOS?

    • http://www.sonos.com/support Sonos Support Team

      Hello,

      Thank you for contacting Sonos Support.You cannot access the MLB through the music services available over Sonos in England. If you can find a way to stream the MLB to another device, you can connect that device to the line in source if its available on your Sonos Components. The Sonos Players in your system will then be able to access that line in source. Please see the attached link for more information on using the line in source on Sonos.

    Just tell me when it’s free. I’ll be damned if I’m paying for anything else.
