XM radio is not available in Canada yet. Soon it will be, something about CRTC licensing etc.

Hey.. I was talking to a few people about the XM radio.. The advice I got was to go to the States to buy it and get hooked up.. then just come back to Canada.. I'm not sure if you have to be a resident of the U.* to have it but it seemed pretty logical to me.

I'd just wait for the technology to migrate up here, then we'll make it better and save on the dollar conversions. I intend to have it on my new car

Unfortunately, I'm not on the road enough to justify the subscription fee for a radio. It'd be nice though to have a nice clear digital signal, instaed of one that can fade just because of buildings and power lines and such.
