The CRTC has no jurisdiction (yet) over streaming radio, so any loss of channels there would be purely the fault of Sirius, and not any regulation imposed on them by CRTC.

I wonder if something like this could have DX potential. Does it scale? If it performs well at 4 inches, would a large tile be even more sensitive?

Not sure why they're hijacking the whole channel for this. Can't they do a scroller on the bottom of the screen? This is overkill and I feel it's unreasonable.
