I dont know about how the CRTC would respond to this. The CRTC by the way is the Canadian version of the FCC.
Nope they are entirely diffrerent companines from the US counterparts. Don't ask me how that happened or works out because I still don't have a clue.
Simple. They're run as separate companies. I mean it's basically 2 entirely different sets of audiences... although they've done a shitty job. SIRIUS US has some canadian stations actual Canadians do not have access to... and american XM subscribers have NHL home ice... i mean it's our friggen national sport!
But to be honest I'm up for a merger between the 2.. I might actually go out and buy a radio to use with my free sub.
