Howard Stern Coming to Canada Spring 2006?

Well, I've noticed an increase in the amount of traffic to the site since I started posting about the Howard Stern - Sirius Canada saga. I want to thank everyone who is visiting the site and leaving comments.

I just watched via Yahoo, Howard's last moments on regular radio and he's now on his walk to the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. I'm a big fan, and I'm going to miss the show on my commute in the morning.

It seems clear that it's a Sirius Canada decision to keep Howard Stern off the air, so that means we need to keep the pressure on them to add Howard to their lineup.

That says, the latest rumours have Howard Stern potentially coming to the Sirius Canada lineup in Spring 2006 [Digital Talk Central,
Howard Stern On Sirius Canada In Spring 2006?]

Howard Stern, the self-proclaimed "King of All Media" may be on top of the game when it comes to US satellite radio, but in Canada, he's been placed on the bench.

...

According to well placed sources in the industry talking with Digital Talk Central on the condition of anonyminity, we can report that Howard Stern is expected to be included on the Sirius Canada service in the spring of 2006.

So, what's the full meal deal?

First of all, we'd like to make it clear that this is just a rumour (advice from our legal team) and this "exclusive" rumour has not been confirmed by Sirius Canada.

I had seen this rumour being posted all over the place - any readers out there have more information?

I still think Howard should come in January, but I will consider the Sirius subscription when Howard shows up, uncensored.

I just purchased a Sirius receiver in Canada thinking that I could purchase the U.S. subscription and receive the full lineup (including Stern). I was able to purchase a U.S. subscription on the Web site. I was charged a US$15 activation fee (when they're currently giving them out for free in Canada) plus US$12.95 monthly fee. However, I only receive the Canadian stations. So I just wasted US$15. Turns out the physical radio needs to be purchased in the U.S. The reason I purchased Sirius in the first place was for Stern. Now I'll likely return it and get XM.

Why don't you just go on E-bay and buy one from the US. for under $100 I got one that plays in house and in my car. You can also Get a "lifetime" membership for $500 USD... that works out to about $8/month over 5 years.
