Sirius Canada: Instructions For Supporting Our License Application

On November 1, 2004 we will participate in public hearings, held by the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), on our application to provide this service.

Our proposal will not only provide substantial benefits to Canadian listeners, but also to new and established Canadian performers, writers and creators. More specifically, if approved our service will:

  • Provide Canadians - from urban centers to the most remote regions of the North - with reliable digital-quality sound;
  • Expand the diversity of programming choices for Canadians on approximately 100 channels, including otherwise unavailable content;
  • Provide approximately 60 commercial-free music channels;
  • Ensure that Canadian artists, performers, writers and creators gain access to broader audiences across Canada and the U.S.; and
  • Provide financial support to Canadian artists through additional copyright fees and through the investment of five percent gross revenues in Canadian talent development.

    To help prepare for the public hearings in November, the CRTC has asked for the public comments on our application to provide this world-class digital audio service.

    The CRTC will hold a hearing commencing on November 1, 2004 in Gatineau Quebec, to review the application of SIRIUS CANADA Satellite Radio. You can support our application by writing to the Commission, and by appearing in person at the hearing. Here is the process for filing a letter with the CRTC in support of the applications...
