Simple question, can a radio purchased in Canada be activated on a US subscription?

I seem to recall at one time this was a no-no but not sure what the current policy is.

I'm thinking of picking up a Starmate 5 which is on sale at Future Shop for $70 including car kit

Edit: Argh, how annoying - I searched and everything then found a post with the answer to my question further down the page :(
