Where's the CFL on SiriusXM in 2014?

I took a road trip through the mountains on the weekend and expected to listen to the Stamps game on the satellite.. I checked all the usual Canadian Channels- but no dice.
I am guessing I'm SOL this year.

The CFL hasn't updated their webpage:

SiriusXM Canada is the Official Satellite Radio Partner of the CFL. Every regular and post-season game as well as the 101st Grey Cup Championship will be available to Sirius and XM subscribers on channel.In addition, all Montréal Alouettes games will be available in French on Influence Franco (XM 174) and Attitude Franco (Sirius 164).

After a bit of research, I discovered that TSN Radio owns the radio broadcast rights to the Grey Cup from 2013 to 2018, and I know that they own some of the regional CFL games; but I cannot find any information about national regular season games. It may be possible that TSN Radio will be the exclusive place to hear CFL this year. Perhaps someone else has more information.

Last year Radio rights and Satellite radio rights were independent.

Yes very disappointing. Thought last year CFL was on channel 160?? I called XM today and they said to check the XM Canada web site by the weekend for more info!! Anyone know anything about this?

I also asked why we can't get NFL Radio on channel 88 and she said if I paid $4.00 per month more I could get NFL radio. This should be included in the yearly package I have. Also does anyone know if TSN is on XM Radio?

RE CFL on XM for 2014

I just did a search on google re CFL on XM Radio and it says Winnipeg vs Montreal at 7:00 PM locally this coming Friday July 11 - but it says it's on SIRI 167 (Internet 167). Does this mean CFL is only on Sirus Radio but NOT XM Radio? Or what the heck does SIRI 167 mean?? Any replies would be much appreciated.

You can change your radio to XM on the right side of the screen.

Was listening on channel 167 last night to both games. Only issue I have noticed is as a US sub I cannot access these channels online on PC or through apps. For some reason the entire Canadian bundle of channels are not available to US-online subscribers. Not that this is a huge issue for CFL as it's easy to find online anyways...
