About the Music Royalty and Administrative Fee (MRF)
The MRF is charged to cover our existing and anticipated content and licensing costs, where applicable, for the particular service subscribed for, and administrative costs which include ongoing technology development and infrastructure costs associated with providing our services in Canada.
A. For Music & Entertainment, Music Showcase and Platinum plans, the MRF is calculated on the subscription fee at a rate of 17.9%.
B. For SiriusXM Streaming, the MRF is calculated on the subscription fee at a rate of 10.2%.
For residents of all provinces in Canada other than Quebec, the MRF applies to all subscriptions, primary and secondary.
The MRF is not added on to the price of subscriptions of residents of Quebec because it is already included in the all-in pricing in Quebec.
