Not sure if you tried this already, but XM is free on the AOL main site.

Hope it helps ya. Better yet, let us know if it works.

I've listened to AOL radio but it doesn't have XL Channels as far as I know. I know it doesnt have the bbbboys unless its been updated. I listen to xm online now so i havent listened to aol in a while.

Depends on how they're blocking it.

I can tell you that as a Network Admin myself, that streaming audio sites kill internet bandwidth. About 10% of all of my Bandwidth at work is used by Internet Radio, and the worst part is that most of it is listening to LOCAL FM stations.

Yes, there's ways around filters, but contrary to popular belief, they stick out like a sore thumb on Internet Logs, and can cause you more trouble (IE: a pink slip in your mailbox). (Just because you are allowed, doesn't mean it's not logged). They can also be blocking it by the type of traffic (IE: Streaming Audio), that is nearly impossible to get around, as it's placing the rule on the internet packet data type, and not by to-from. (Packeteer's, Websense, and Blue Coat can do this type of blocking).

Can you get your XM radio to work in your office? My wife is able to get very good reception with her MyFi in a Dock with a full size antenna... and she's in the middle of her high-rise building.

I don't think he gets a very good satellite signal in Iraq :rolleyes:

Unless he can persuade the admin to unblock the XM site, I see a new Audible account in the near future.

I could not get it at my new work location and I could not get a signal with the unit so I grabbed an old laptop, popped in a Verizon aircard and now stream it on that and connect the audio out to a nice sized radio on the desk. It costs a few $$ but for about $350 or less you can knock it out and fuck the company filters.

I think he wants to listen live so recorded shows may not be an option. How about Windows Media Center Edition or Vista Home Premium. XM is part of that package too. I don't know if they direct to the same servers are regular XM online but it may be worth a try. Or like someone else said, bribe the IT guy.

You're right. If he wants it live, he can always stream the FM part from 92krock. The suggestions for the XM portions of the show seem valid. Is there any way the OP can get a portable unit and listen with headphones?
I'm just sayin'...

Not the brightest bulb in the box, are you?
if you're talking to me, then fuck you.
just because my answers don't match your blandness, that doesn't mean you attack, butt-fuck.
BTW, not that it matters, but I have a doctorate. I may make some mistakes on the message boards, but at least I'm literate and educated.

oh...and if you weren't pointing that comment at me, you're still a douche.
I'm outta here.
