Tesla is NFL challenged. No Sirius, no sports radio.

Usually listen to Monday Night Football on the way home from work via Sirius and the sports network channels.

No gots in the Model 3.

Solution I found (for Sunday night game) was get the game on your phone via one of the apps from Fox, CBS, ESPN etc. and then run the audio via the car speakers. Can be distracting since many times it is the video of the game so that's running on the phone and it is tempting to look down at the phone.

Suggest pulling over to get it all working.

  • Suggest watching sporting events at home on TV. That’s what DVRs are for. Moron.

    Well if you have to work, it's nice to be able to listen to the game on the way home. Or if you have chores on Sunday, listen to the games. Or Thursday night on the way home from work. Or Sunday night on the way home from activities.

    I guess Tesla wanted to save on the antennae cost and likely commercial issues with Sirius but an opportunity for Tesla, if it wants to promote that route, to figure out how to stream the audio via cell connection. It's all the phone uses.

    A case where CarPlay/Auto install, a frequent Tesla owner request, might help.
  • Stream it from your phone.
  • @FISHEV - it is OK with me if want to become the next Joshua Brown as long as you don’t take anyone else with you.
  • Not this again. He tried to suggest to watch Space X lunch in the car while driving now this. He is world class moron.

    Day late and dollar short...or just lack of reading comprehension.

    We already know how to work around Tesla low tech, be nice if Tesla upped the tech to that of other cars.

    Sirius antennae are cheap at $20 but no way to interface it with Tesla audio system.

    Now that would be a nice over the air update. Tesla could even offer it as "NFL Access Radio" option.
  • Or you could stream it from your phone.
  • Tesla just revamped the Sirius features but only for Model S and X vehicles. They really should retrofit all Model 3's and Y's so people can easily enjoy listening to it. It is possible to play it via the SiriusXM app, which is good, by hitting the phone button on the screen and connecting it but it's not as easy as it is for the S & X owners.

    Plus the new SiriusXM 360 On Demand platform which BMW is rolling out on all new models is going to be really good. Hopefully Tesla will at least start putting it on 2021 or 2022 models....all of them.
  • All my siriusxm subscriptions never renewed after trail is over for a reason. I don't need it.

    Tesla is just backwards on the the car infotainment issue. No live sports broadcasting.
  • S/X come with FM/HD/XM radio (S with MCU1 also have AM). Though MCU1 S/X that get the "infotainment upgrade" to MCU2 lose all radio.

    Tesla (Musk?) appears to be placing more emphasis on streaming than on radio, assuming drivers will either use the small number of built-in streaming apps, or use their smartphones to access a much larger library of apps.

    Using smartphone apps while driving is illegal in many places, requiring the driver to interact with their smartphone screen to interact with the app.

    XM's smartphone app can be a better solution than using XM radio, because the app has access to more channels (such as both home and away broadcast for games), plus the app supports buffering, allowing you to pause/resume or skip forward/backward. But this requires interacting the the smartphone - not using the Tesla console's media player interface.

    While there are still some areas where internet service isn't available, if Tesla really intends to focus primarily on streaming apps, they should add more streaming apps (SiriusXM, Audible, and additional radio streaming apps).

    They should also add "screen mirroring" for smartphones - something Musk promised several years ago. Other manufacturers are providing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto - but (at least with Android Auto) there are limitations because only a subset of the functionality and apps are supported. Musk indicated Tesla would likely go with a different solution, which would hopefully support the full app functionality and support all smartphone apps. But haven't seen any comments on "screen mirroring" for quite a while (from Musk).

    Tesla's support for infotainment while driving hasn't improved much since the first Model S was sold over 8 years ago. The user interface looks great, but the functionality hasn't improved much (and in some areas has gone backward) - with other manufacturers bringing EVs to the market with better infotainment (while driving), it's (past) time for Tesla to do more than changing the UI and add more functionality...

    Wonder why no XM option for the Model 3. It's crazy cheap.
  • Hmm you can't use this Fish?

  • Tesla has enough vehicles to justify getting the SiriusXM app added to the infotainment system. The XM streaming app has more channels (usually home & away broadcasts for games) - plus they could include buffering, that would allow pause/resume and skip forward/backward.

    A subscription would be required for the streaming app, unless the owner had an XM radio subscription for another device/vehicle.

    Adding the app is a much better solution in the long run than adding the satellite antenna. Though the satellite support is helpful when driving in areas with poor or no internet service.
  • 4 past cars had XM and we didn't bother to pay for them once trail expired.

    I like this idea and should be done via an over the air update on all 3 and Y's asap.

    Any idea if the new SiriusXM 360L On-demand platform roll out can be installed via an app onto for example a Tesla screen without having a satellite antenna?
  • "XM's smartphone app can be a better solution than using XM radio, because the app has access to more channels (such as both home and away broadcast for games)..."

    A streaming-only subscription to XM includes more channels but excludes MLB; MLB does stream for those with an XM radio plus streaming.

    But baseball season is coming to an end, so there's that. But I was amazed that you can't get MLB through a streaming-only subscription.
