Not true. Whether you're able to receive the full US lineup on a Canadian bought Sirius radio, depends largely on the age of the unit. If you have a newer unit, there should be no problem whatsoever; if it's an older radio, it would depend on how old the chip in it is. Since you received your radio for Christmas, you should have no worries. All you need now is a US address and you'll be all set.
