Sirius Canada: Howard Stern Starts Monday

A big hat tip to the Meatriarchy [Sirius Canada News, SIRIUS Canada Adds Howard Stern to Satellite Radio Line Up]:
Toronto, February 1, 2006 - SIRIUS Canada today announced that the "King of All Media," Howard Stern, will be included as part of the company’s 100 channel premium line up. As of February 6, 2006, SIRIUS Canada subscribers will be able to hear Stern on the widely publicized Howard 100 channel.

Stern who debuted on SIRIUS Satellite Radio in the U.S. on January 9, 2006, is North America’s most recognized radio personality, and had the top rated morning drive show in the U.S.

“No one in radio commands more attention than Howard Stern,” said Mark Redmond, SIRIUS Canada President and CEO. “He is an industry icon with millions of loyal fans throughout the continent who will follow him anywhere to hear his unique form of entertainment. SIRIUS Canada is committed to providing an unrivaled radio experience for Canadian subscribers with the most variety and choice available in radio, and Howard’s show will make our unique entertainment offering even more exciting.”
This is great news for all Howard Stern fans in Canada and has me wanting to go check out Sirius Canada.

Thanks, Sirius.

They are only carrying Howard 100. No Howard 101.

I'm happy I got my grey market radio!

From what I can tell looking at the schedule, the only difference between the two, is that Howard 101 carries Bubba the Love Sponge. Is that right?

Bubba and probably other shows in the future. Plus you get Howard at 9am for the west coast. Still, at least he's finally on for Canadians that didn't go thru the trouble of going grey.

Good point, Anon 9:44.

Isn't Howard supposed to have 5 channels? Is he only broadcasting on the two right now - with future development planned?

That is possible. The ideas and personalities seem limitless. Although I don't get to hear the whole show, the hour or two I do hear has been great. Add to that the great music channels on Sirius, and it's a win/win situation.
