Just hours after XM Canada announced the launch of its Blackberry App, Sirius Canada issued a statement that it too had launched its Blackberry app.

Through the application, subscribers can access over 100 stations from Sirius Canada. Some select programming including NFL Play-by-Play, Nascar Radio, and Howard Stern, is not available.

Features of the application include the ability to "Tag" favorite songs for later purchase from the iTunes Store; maintain a list of favourite channels for fast; and view what is playing on all other available channels via the "lookaround" function.

At launch, the free app will be available from the Sirius Canada site for the following BlackBerry models: Storm 9530, Storm2 9550, Bold 9000, Bold 9700, Tour 9630, Curve 8900, Curve 8520 and Curve 8530.
