New Internet radio and streaming services are staring every day. One of the original streaming radio services is one we’ve all grown to like – Pandora Radio. Their massive music collection is really a must have for any music lover. Unfortunately, to tap into this plethora of music one must be located inside of the United States! This is the error message non-us residents will see when trying to listen to pandora:
Dear Pandora Visitor,
We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.
We believe that you are in Canada (your IP address appears to be 126.96.36.199). If you believe we have made a mistake, we apologize and ask that you please email us.
If you have been using Pandora, we will keep a record of your existing stations and bookmarked artists and songs, so that when we are able to launch in your country, they will be waiting for you.
We will be notifying listeners as licensing agreements are established in individual countries. If you would like to be notified by email when Pandora is available in your country, please enter your email address below. The pace of global licensing is hard to predict, but we have the ultimate goal of being able to offer our service everywhere.
We share your disappointment and greatly appreciate your understanding.
How to trick Pandora Radio into thinking your in the US
What you need to unblock Pandora Radio is obtain a real american IP address to hide your actual location. You can accomplish this task easily by connecting to a Virtual Private Network, or VPN Service like TorGuard. Don’t worry, it sounds overly-technical, but it’s really simple to do. If you first connect to the US VPN server your IP address will appear to come from the United States thus making Pandora Radio think your really there! That’s it, click connect and then start streaming US Pandora Radio.
