What is Pandora Radio, and how can I listen to it?

Pandora Radio (or Pandora Media, depending on where you are or who you talk to) is an American automated music streaming service. It’s powered by the Music Genome Project and operated by Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

It is, however, only available in the United States.

The service is accessed through any web browser or via their mobile app. Known as a freemium service (a free service but with a paid-for premium option), basic listening is paid for by partner advertising. If you prefer to sign up for the additional services, you’ll have the opportunity for better streaming quality, downloads and offline channels. You’ll also be able to design your own playlists.

There are somewhere around 60 million current subscribers and over 70 million active users.

Pandora Radio’s streaming content

Listeners can tune into Pandora’s established genre stations or create their own, based on their musical interests. To streamline listening, Pandora gives you the option to apply a thumbs up or down to each track. This determines the type of music it chooses for you, and if you give a song the thumbs down twice, it bars it from your listening for good.

Pandora supplies its listeners with millions of songs, provides masses of podcasts, album commentaries and a host of artist tour information.

How can I listen to Pandora with StreamLocator?

Okay, so Pandora listeners need to be located in the US to access their libraries. Still, StreamLocator is ingenious enough to fool the servers into thinking that you’re sat happily within US territories.

Our smart router changes your virtual location and provides an appropriate alternative to Pandora, showing the location they need, and providing you with access to their fantastic range of music and audio entertainment.

No complicated settings or software installation required

There’s no software to install, nor do you have to swap or switch settings on any computer or device. StreamLocator is always ready for action and is compatible with every one of your Internet access devices.

All you have to do is plug it in and switch over to our network. That’s it!

Whether you’re using an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, a games console, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku or Chromecast, StreamLocator is the perfect match for every way you access the Internet.

Not only do all of your devices work with our system, but your network speed will never be affected. In fact, whether you’re working or playing, online or offline, your device performance and behaviours will be just the same as they always were. The only difference is, you now have access to all that blocked content you couldn’t watch or listen to before.

You can connect with as many devices as you like, each to a different country and service if that’s what you need. And just like your traditional WiFi network, it’s available from wherever you are in your home.

How to listen to Pandora from outside the USA

Pandora prevents listeners from outside the US, accessing their web-content using geolocation blockers. VPN software or changing DNS settings and servers are the most typical ways to manage a workaround.

Whichever you choose, you’ll need to change your location and provide an alternative that shows you to be in one of the American territories.

How to register for Pandora from outside the USA

Once you gain access to Pandora, you don’t need to register to listen to their content. However, if you’d like to, to take advantage of their additional functions, signing up should be a breeze when you’re on the StreamLocator network.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to listen to Pandora Radio from outside the USA?

To get around geolocation blockers, users need to change their location to access the sites and content they want. VPN and DNS options are the primary methods for this—each method has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages.

VPN is a handy tool when accessing the Internet using shared networks. Hotel, restaurant or any public WiFi can leave us susceptible to hackers accessing our private information. A VPN will block them, giving us greater security and peace of mind.

However, if you’re trying to access geo-blocked content from home, you won’t find a better solution than StreamLocator.

It uses a combination of VPN and DNS solutions, as well as a range of other intelligent methods, to provide all the access you could require in any location. It cleverly detects all the information each server requires and provides precisely that, connecting you automatically and without a hitch.

How to unblock Pandora

Accessing Pandora using StreamLocator is the simplest way to get your hands on all of their music content from anywhere in the world. Once you’ve plugged in our smart hub and set up your account, the only thing left to do is switch over to your new StreamLocator network (instead of your usual WiFi option), and we take care of the rest.

Our smart router will plug into any available port of your existing router and won’t affect its performance in any way, shape or form.

That’s it! You can access Pandora’s podcasts, albums, artists and playlists using any browser, device or app you choose.

Does StreamLocator allow me to listen to Pandora Music for free?

Yes, it does! All the standard features and access to the masses of Pandora music, audio and industry entertainment is yours at absolutely no cost. To access the additional features for Pandora subscribers, you’ll have to create and subscribe to your own account.
