Sirius app blocked?

I have a U.S. Sirius sub and can't see the app in the Android market.
The link from doesn't work (error 404).
I can use the Canadian link and it works...for a Canadian sub.
Need a link/app for a U.S. sub in Canada...
Is the phone region based and blocking apps?

It's probably blocked based on IP much like Pandora, Hulu, etc...

In general if you have Android system you don't need to install app from the Android Store. You can download APK file to your PC and then you can make send by bluetooth to your device and then you can install any Android app yourself.

Might not be helpful... But my father BB app doesn't work with my US sub login with US Sirius either.

But with my iPhone, I was able to download the US Sirius app, and it would flawlessly here in Mississauga.

That would lead me to believe it's not the actual USA Sirius blocking the stream to Canada, but the Canadian app just not excepting the US Sirius one.

To the last two posts, Sirius US isn't blocked in Canada whatsoever. As Wyl suggested, it is the Canadian Appstore app that isn't worth (well rhymes with app). And no Rogers doesn't geoblock Sirius US either as I'm on Fido (which is the same IP range) and the Sirius US app works just fine. Jinx31, hunt around int he forum and you'll find the answer to your question... which starts with a whopping YES!
