If you have ATT there is an XM subscription you can get with the Curve.

There is no known way to stream XM via any 3rd party player for those like me that are XM subscribers and listen online via their XMRO player.

No...we have bought a half dozen Curves recently for our people at work and it comes with a 3 day trial I think. I have never tried it.

I have been begging for this for about 6 months to a year now!!! Dollars5 said they were considering this for a future version but nothing has changed in over 4 months now. I decided to start recording the shows using the sirius widget from yahoo and audiograbber and storing the files on my 2gb card on my pearl to play back the whole show OnDemand (no reference to HowardTV intended). I am an avid fan as well and actually prefer this method simply because I control when I listen to the daily shows and can fast forward/skip parts I am not interested in (like commercials).

Keep us posted if you find a better way than recording and playing back the mp3 file.

How is this working for you? Are you just using the BB Browser and logging in to the Sirius online player?

I am looking for an XM solution. Last I knew that the XM online "wrapper" or whatever it is called uses .NET or something and that is why Dollars5 say it may be tough getting it compatible with the BlackBerry.
