Sirius Canada begins broadcasting next month. Ten of the 100 channels will contain Canadian content including news from CBC/Radio Canada, Canadian music channels and some French-language streams as well. Hardware will be available “soon,” according to the company, at retailers such as Future Shop, Best Buy, London Drugs, Circuit City and Canadian Tire.
Sirius Canada is owned by CBC/Radio Canada, Standard Radio, a Canadian network and Sirius Satellite Radio.
Although some Canadians have been going into the U.S. to purchase Sirius receivers and receive the programming, the Canadian government recently authorized licenses to both U.S.-based satellite radio services and the pay radio services will now broadcast some Canadian content.
