This is the document sent to me which suggests there will be no change for Canada.
Dear/ Bonjour Darcy
XM Satellite Radio Inc. and Sirius Satellite Radio in the United States have announced their intention to merge subject to U.*.
shareholder and government approval. Many of you have asked us, "What does this mean for subscribers to XM Radio in Canada?"
There will be no change in the service we deliver to our Canadian Subscribers.
This U.*. development has no immediate implications for Canadian subscribers. XM Canada is an independent Canadian owned company that holds the exclusive license to provide XM satellite radio services in Canada. We remain committed to providing you with the finest digital audio entertainment and information services in the country.
The stated intent of our XM U.*. partner and Sirius is to maintain two separate satellite delivery systems which will ensure that your XM radio will continue to operate as it does today for the foreseeable future. There will be no disruption or change to the availability of your XM service as we continue to deliver the best in commercial free music, comedy, talk, news, and sport - including coverage of the NHL, and exclusive coverage of MLB (Major League Baseball) and the PGA (Professional Golf Association).
We will continue to provide you with full information about XM Canada through our existing communication channels including our monthly e-mail newsletter, XM Signal, and our website www.xmradio.ca
Thank you for choosing XM Canada.
