Pandora is a music streaming service which had its fair share of problems over the last two years. It offers personalized radio stations suited for each and every user but recent changes in royalty rates will make the cost rise drastically. The difficulty of licensing has prompted Pandora to block all non US listeners: greatly affecting their revenue.

Pandora has found a way out of this with their cooperation with Sprint and Sonos. Sprint handsets will now be preinstalled with a 30 days free trial version of Pandora. There is an option to upgrade for $3 per month to Pandora Premium. This Pandora cooperation with Sonos will also enable users to stream music through their home system to listen to what they like.
