XM Canada turns up the volume
XM Canada is turning up the volume along the Sea to Sky Highway
with enhanced signal coverage to pump-up skiers and snowboarders for the ski
season and beyond.
With additional terrestrial repeater networks permanently
installed along the Sea to Sky Highway, XM Canada will ensure that listeners
have strong and steady laughs, sports, tunes and talk radio without the risk of
static, fuzz or dead air.
“With the upcoming 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Whistler, and
with an increasingly large listener base in the area, we wanted to boost the
signal to give our listeners uninterrupted coverage,” said Mark Knapton, vice
president of customer operations of XM Canada. “This is a dramatic improvement
over our satellite radio competitor and especially AM and FM radio.”
To date, a limited number of radio stations were available on
sections of Highway 99. Now, regardless of location along the highway, a
variety of music, sports and news channels will be available, including
broadcasts of Canucks games.
XM Canada’s network of terrestrial repeaters stretches across
Canada and serves to amplify the signal from XM’s satellites in areas where the
signal is blocked due to geography or other impediments. XM Canada continues to
build out new repeater locations and fine tune its network to ensure
subscribers receive the best and strongest satellite radio coverage across
