In 2010, SiriusXM Canada introduced the Canadian Music Royalty Fee (MRF) as a result of a decision by the Copyright Board of Canada regarding royalties for broadcasting music to your satellite radio. The MRF helps support the artists who create and perform the great entertainment you currently enjoy through SiriusXM.
Due to changes in Canadian legislation we are restructuring the MRF fee that you already pay as part of your SiriusXM subscription and have included Canadian Content Development (CCD) and other regulatory fees within the MRF, now referred to as the Music Royalty and Regulatory Fee (MRF). As a result the fee is being updated to 14.2% of your satellite radio subscription price, effective renewals after September 25, 2015, for the copyright and regulatory fees associated with broadcasting our content.
Together with SiriusXM Canada you are helping satellite radio to support and develop our country’s emerging talent. Every year, with your help, we provide support and exposure to up-and-coming Canadian artists and promote music education and we look forward to continue to provide you, our valued subscriber, the best and brightest talent our country has to offer along with the best line-up of commercial-free music, exclusive entertainment, and every major sport and news brand.
