Sirius Canada, an affiliate of Sirius Satellite Radio has been approved by Canada’s Federal Cabinet to offer service in the country. This supported the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission’s ruling from earlier this year.

Once it begins broadcast, Canadian audiences will have access to a number of commercial-free music channels and comprehensive sports coverage. Subscribers will get play-by-play coverage of the National Hockey League, Wimbledon Championships and Barclay’s English Premier League soccer among others. Sirius Canada will also dedicate channels to programming produced by Canadian artists in both English and French.

Coverage of the NHL will continue through the end of the 2006-2007 season. Sirius’ competitor, XM Radio, has inked a $100 million deal with the NHL making it the exclusive satellite radio network of the league for ten years, starting with the 2007-2008 season. XM intends to create a NHL-dedicated channel to cover all aspects of the sport. In Canada the games will be broadcast through XM’s partner, Canadian Satellite Radio, who also recently won government approval.
