Pandora Radio, or Pandora in short, is a music streaming and music recommendation service, which has won the hearts of millions of listeners. Powered by the Music Genome Project, Pandora provides users with highly personalized radio stations.
You won’t find standard pre-compiled playlists in Pandora – instead, it analyzes the musical structures of the tracks you like and plays only song selections with the same musical traits. With Pandora, it all starts with the selection of genre by artist.Based on that, the service then plays songs and collects the user’s feedback. Give a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to rate Pandora’s suggestions and ‘teach’ the service about your music taste.
Pandora is currently available only in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, which makes up very limited global coverage if compared to other music streaming services. Unfortunately, Pandora is out of reach for music lovers outside these countries due to copyright licensing constraints.
Geo-restrictions also apply to Pandora’s users who happen to go outside the U.S., Australia or New Zealand when travelling or moving abroad. It is especially frustrating for users who have paid for the premium service but are not able to access Pandora to enjoy the personalized music selection whenever and wherever they wish.
Moreover, employers often block access to entertainment sites and streaming services on workplace networks. Therefore, Pandora users might have to spend their working hours without their favorite tunes.
When your device connects to the Internet, the IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) indicates your location. That’s how websites and online services, such as Pandora, know in what country you are and specify their offerings. Consequently, geo-restrictions applicable for your region will result in blocked services and content limitations. Similarly, when you connect to your office Wi-Fi, you may not be able to access certain websites if your employer’s policy is to block them within the local network.
NordVPN helps you easily bypass these restrictions and access Pandora, no matter where you are. Just connect to one of our VPN servers in order to virtually appear in a different location, where the music service is available.
And that’s not the end of it. NordVPN not only lets you enjoy Pandora’s radio – it also secures your Internet traffic with the most advanced encryption. This way, your private data is protected from snoopers and hackers.
