Default Hardware difference between American/Canadian receivers?

Is there any difference hardware wise between the American and Canadian receivers? Is an American receiver able to subscribe to the Canadian service?

I'm sure this has been answered.. but searched and couldnt find anything.

We have been having problems activating radios purchased in Canada with the American service. Us in customer care aren't fully sure why, but our leading theory is the ESNs up there are marked in the system and we have no way to bypass it (awaiting official word from corporate on this).

The biggest difference we have heard on the phones is if you buy your radio in Canada, you will not get Howard Stern, no matter what we try.
