Default XM channels with Sirius Canada subsription

Just curious if anyone is receiving the new XM channels with a Canadian subscription? If so, how and what kind of hardware are you using.

What if you use US Sirius hardware on a Canada Sirius subscription? Does this get the XM channels?

Cheers.

Sirius Canada and XM Canada did not merge. You cannot get the Best Of XM on a Sirius Canada subscription.

Its funny on my starmate 4 using the remote control if you press the 'right arrow button' you get XM listed on it, I'm assuming this is because the signal is coming from the same satellite and due to the update that happened a while back.....

No i'm not getting any channels, just saying the 'heading is there' much like 'Pop' 'Rock' etc....

Yes same technology. Just no way to subscribe to those channels.
