Canada 360 was a Canadian 24-hour news radio station, which aired on Sirius XM. Operated by Accessible Media (AMI), the channel provided the latest news, sports, weather and border-crossing information. The channel was formerly programmed by Radio Development Group, owned by serial entrepreneur Evan Kosiner.
The station began airing in 2005 and became the world's first 24/7 headline news radio station, concurrently with the launch of XM Canada. Its typical hour was divided into four 15-minute segments with news and sports headlines sourced from Canadian Press, plus weather forecasts provided by The Weather Network.
The audio was encoded at 4 kbit/s mono and sounds similar to that of an AM broadcasting station. The channel's audio was vocal audio only, much like Sirius XM's other traffic and weather channels.
On 2008-11-12, Canada 360 was moved from Channel 244 to Channel 96. On 2011-05-04, Canada 360 was moved from Channel 96 to Channel 155. It could be heard last on Channel 172. Currently that position is held by SiriusXM Scoreboard.
