    Default US Sirius Radio vs Canadian Sirius Radio

    Any big differences between the two? Does the canadian version still have to comply with Canadian broadcasting standards where 1/3 of their music must be canadian? Does the US version work all over canada like the canadian version does?

    Thanks

    I've heard that its in your best interest to go with the American one. As long as you don't stray too far north, the U.S. one will work flawlessly. I've had zero problems so far.

    I believe it has to comply with Canadian Broadcasting laws. I know that they won't let them have the Howard Stern Show on the Canadian version.

    The ONLY reason for Sirius is Howard Stern. That, and they don't care what they say on the radio, unlike stations like Vibe who have to comply with CRTC restrictions.

    You will need a U.S. receiver. Ebay is your friend, many come with working subscriptions already.

    Have they got reliable portables yet? I want a walkman that will work while out running/walking as well as in the car?
