New US subs, and those renewing
are also getting hit with a US Music Fee of $1.98 US per month
and if you choose a $2.99 online listening fee.
Online listening is free with a Sirius Canada sub.
So if you go with Sirius US it costs:
$12.95 Sirus Standard Sub
$1.99 US Music Fee
$2.99 Online Listening Fee
Total $17.93 US plus exchange currently takes you to about $20 CND
$14.99 CND includes Online Listening too
The biggest advantage with Sirius US
is the option to buy Best of XM that includes NHL etc,
but thats adds another $4 US to the sub cost.
So you'll end up paying about $25CND per month
depending on the exchange rates for a US Sirius package with NHL.
Another option is XM Canada that includes
NHL and MLB with similar music for $14.99CND
but lacking Stern and a few others.
Given the new US fees,
the CND providers seem to have the best value now?
Also with a CND sub no worries / hassle when its time to cancel or change credit card info.
You can not cancel your US sub online,
you need to call in and they could close the US toll free number to Canadian callers.
