SIRIUS' Alt Nation to become "Coldplay Nation" for ten days beginning June 13

AMSIRIUS' Alt Nation to become "Coldplay Nation" for ten days beginning June 13

NEW YORK, June 11, 2008
SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI) today announced that Coldplay will take over SIRIUS' Alt Nation channel 21 for ten days.

Coldplay Nation will premiere on Friday, June 13 at 6:00 pm ET and will air through Sunday, June 22. The launch of Coldplay Nation coincides with the release of Viva La Vida, Coldplay's new album, which will be in stores June 17.

The channel will feature music from Viva La Vida as well as other Coldplay songs and will include personal introductions by members of the band, including lead singer Chris Martin. The band will also select songs by artists who have influenced them over the years and some of their favorite music from today.

Viva La Vida, Coldplay's fourth album, " ... was fueled by a desire to move from black and white into color," says Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. "Or, if you like, we decided to let our garden grow a little more unkempt. The bloodhound was let off its leash."

"Coldplay has found chart-topping worldwide success by creating one of the most distinctive sounds and styles in popular music today," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS President of Entertainment and Sports. "We are thrilled to give Coldplay and their fans a channel on SIRIUS where they can hear the band introduce their music in addition to the unique music always played on Alt Nation, uninterrupted and non-stop for an unprecedented ten full days."

Coldplay Nation continues SIRIUS' tradition of creating exclusive limited-run artist-branded channels dedicated to iconic musicians. SIRIUS has previously offered limited-run channels such as Radio R.E.M., Weezer Nation, Rolling Stones Radio, E Street Radio, Neil Diamond Radio, and JAY-Z Nation, among many others.

Sirius Canada boosts subscriber count by 250,000 over past eight months

June 12, 2008 - 11:59 am

By: THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Satellite radio provider Sirius Canada says its subscriber count grew by more than 250,000 customers over the past eight months.

The latest results bring the company's total to 750,000 subscribers, Sirius said on Thursday.

"The last eight months were the strongest period of subscriber growth since launch and our success to-date has surpassed the expectations of the company's management and shareholders," said president and chief executive Mark Redmond.

Privately-owned Sirius is one of two subscription radio services operating in Canada, the other being XM Radio, a publicly traded company through Canadian Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. (TSX:XSR).

In the United States, the two companies respective U.S. partners are involved in a drawn-out merger process that began over a year ago. The merger of XM and Sirius has received approval from the U.S. Justice Department, but stalled with regulators at the Federal Communications Commission.

Ownership of both entities differs in Canada, and for that reason both companies have said it won't affect their domestic operations.

Sirius Canada's is 40 per cent owned by CBC Radio, 40 per cent by Slaight Communications and 20 per cent owned by Sirius in the United States.

"At this point we're saying that we're not included in the merger in the U.S. It's probably too early to speculate what would happen," said Sirius spokesman Jeff Roman.

Sirius also plans to add 10 more full-time channels to its line-up, covering music, sports and talk programs.
