Canada 360 is a Canadian 24-hour news radio station, which airs on XM Satellite Radio ch. 96. The station is primarily a loop of news programming, part of which is sourced from Wise Broadcasting's terrestrial news stations & also from Broadcast News.
The channel is extremely low-fidelity audio @ approximately 4 kbit/s mono. This is because the channel is vocal audio only, much like XM's traffic & weather channels. On occasion, mostly for important national events, the channel's bitrate is increased to a higher fidelity rate.
On 2008-11-12, Canada 360 was moved from ch. 244 to ch. 96.
