The view from Canada (The360Gambler)

I am a proud  father of 2 girls (aged 11 & 8) living in Dieppe, NB...That is in Canada (3 hours east of the Maine border) for all you Americans

I will blog on pretty much stay tuned!
Satellite radio 10/8/2008 5:53:00 AM

Well it took me longer then it should but i finally got a new car in May and along with it installed a Sirius receiver. For the past 5 months I have pretty much listened only to Sirius in my car (& some as well at work on my pc). Which reminds me, the added convinence of being able to listen online "free" once you are set up was a nice bonus. I was not aware of this before and if I had, I may have put one in earlier on my previous car. 

The advantages are so great & I love it. Who else here has it (Sirius and/or XM)? I am not sure when in Canada we will be able to get some of the XM channels but when we do, which ones do you suggest?

The one small concern is what will happen 5-10 years down the road to the number of stations & quality of programming for local channels for "regular" radio? I can see both of it going down as more & more enjoy the benefits of satellite. As well, pretty much all new cars come "out of the box" with a preinstalled receiver/antena.

 And finally, which channels do you listen to more for those with Sirius?

Indeed JM, hard to believe :)

bprough-Indeed Howard 100&101 are staples for me also...I also switch back & forth between the many sports channels (ESPN, NHL. NFL network, etc..) but have yet to really listen to lots of sports "live events".

NFL, Howard and check out Ron and Fez on Sirius 197. THey take a while to get used to but once you figure out whats going on you get hooked.
