In Canada, Delphi now supplies receivers to automakers that offer satellite radio as a vehicle option, as well as through retail channels.

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved licenses for satellite radio in June, opening up a new market for this rapidly growing form of entertainment.

Three satellite services have been approved by the CRTC, and two of the services began broadcasting in December. Delphi currently manufactures hardware that supports both services that are broadcasting.

Satellite radio has been available for four years in the U.S. and has grown to more than 8 million subscribers. Satellite radio, or “subscription radio” as its called in Canada, offers hundreds of channels of digital-quality, crystal-clear music and programming for a monthly fee. Delphi has produced more than 8.5 million satellite receivers since it started producing receivers in 2001.

Delphi supplies both OEM and retail hardware for XM Satellite Radio and OEM hardware for SIRIUS Satellite. Since beginning production in 1936, Delphi has manufactured more than 270 million radio systems.
