Sirius is joining with public broadcaster CBC/Radio-Canada in a venture to bring satellite radio to that country. They plan to file with Canadian regulators for a license to provide satellite radio in Canada.
CBC/Radio-Canada's President and CEO said, "By expanding the choices available to Canadians, this new service will enable the national public broadcaster to better fulfill its mandate by extending its reach and enhancing its services to Canadians."
Two of CBC/Radio-Canada’s channels will be part of the Sirius programming.
“Sirius and CBC/Radio-Canada are holding talks with, and may add, other Canadian financial or broadcasting investors to the venture,” the two said in a statement.
