XM To Hand Out Radio at Series

XM Satellite Radio has announced that it will be giving out free receivers to every fan at tomorrow’s opening World Series game in Chicago. If the series makes it to five games, XM will do the same in Houston.

It’s a good match for XM, which has an exclusive contract to broadcast baseball, but there’s a small catch: Fans who want to actually get the service will have to prepay for three months of the service. Considering the cost is only $12.95 a month, though, and the receivers retail for $79.99, everyone will still come out ahead.
