Sirius Canada grows to over 1 million subscribers

Sirius XM Radio
Sirius Canada has reached a significant milestone - they have recently exceeded one million paying subscribers across Canada.

The company is one of the only subscription services in Canada to beat the one million subscriber mark after only four years of operation.
"Exceeding one million subscribers is our most significant milestone to-date and we're proud to be the fastest growing audio entertainment company in Canada," said Mark Redmond, president and CEO of Sirius Canada Inc.

Keep in mind that Sirius Canada has accomplished this milestone despite a nasty economy in 2009 and the slowdown in the automotive and retail industries.

Another interesting bit: among Canadians, Sirius is the brand of choice both at retail and integrated in vehicles. According to The NPD Group, 8 out of 10 satellite radio shoppers chose Sirius at retail throughout 2009, while their automotive partners make up 60 percent of vehicle sales in Canada.

"Over the past four years we've built one of the top media companies in Canada by focusing on our customers and offering an exceptional entertainment experience with unique and exclusive content," said Redmond. "The best is yet to come..."

Congrats to the folks at Sirius Canada to helped make this happen.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

So Sirius and XM are STILL separate entities in Canada? Down here in the US they say that they are one company but it sure still feels like they are two.

yup, two companies in canada.

I think it's way more than that. A lot of Canadians have U.S. subscriptions.
