Leave it to the CBC to screw things up for everyone... I would much rather have fewer Canadian channels but with more attention paid to them, quality over quantity.
I believe to get a SDARS license in Canada, they couldn't broadcast local weather and traffic information to protect the local stations in Canada.. I think "The Weather Network" gets away with being a national service.
Just a quick question, when subscribers are counted for Sirius/XM and they show 18.6 million or whatever amount, does that include the Canadian subs also?
