    Tried to log online today and couldn't find SIR-9, Cinemagic, in Standards.

    Wondering if Sirius Canada has changed the online offerings.

    Must be a glitch, I'm listening to it right now. I see no reason for them to remove Cinemagic in Canada.

    Sirius Canada and XM Canada are theoretically different. I am surprised that Sirius Canada was allowed to offer an XM exclusive channel in Canada.

    Sirius and XM remain separate companies in Canada. Guess the Canadians realized that the merger WOULD be a monopoly.

    They are talking. Eventually they will merge its just a matter of when. Having it 2 companies here is rather silly given that 80% of the stuff is 100% the same.

    Sirius Canada Customer Service did not know about any changes to the Internet channel offerings when I called them on Tuesday, but they did respond to my email query today indicating the channels have been removed from the Internet stream. They provided no details on which channels were removed.

    Internet channels marked "SIR-" are likely affected. In the case of Cinemagic, this station is still being broadcast by XM Canada, a separate company, and this may affect streaming rights by Sirius Canada.

    Sirius Canada is at least consistent in their approach to changes in their service. No notification to the customer and no information explaining the changes from the call center for days. They don't appear to implement any communication plan when they make changes.

    Bottom line. Sirius Canada customers are now getting fewer Internet channels for their subscription.

    Thats why as a Canadian, I am sticking with my American sirius subscription.

    I noticed that with my SL2, I get Cinemagic on Internet Radio, even though it's not available through satellite nor online listening.

    I actually get near additional 20 channels (over satellite), including showcase channels, political channels, and PRX.

    Cinemagic Channel Restored in Canada

    It has literally taken years. With the official merger of Sirius and XM in Canada effective in October, Cinemagic has retuned to Canadian subscribers.
