I like SiriusXM. I am a big fan of the service and the content. When I don’t use SiriusXM, I am probably tuned into MOG. I love the service, however, we will see where the good Dr. Dre and the Beats nurses take it. Between those two services, I am at $25 a month for in-car entertainment. But that’s my job, man! However, Pandora is a great service for those willing to put up with a little advertising for free content. It makes sense for those customers purchasing a Pioneer head unit with a $90 price tag. Or for those who just cannot bear the thought of another monthly subscription bill. Either way, Pandora is way more gooder than the typical dreck commercials on your Clear Channel affiliate. That, as will.i.am says, go on and on and on and on…

PIONEER PROMOTES COMMERCIAL FREE PANDORA SERVICE WITH MORE THAN 20 IN-DASH RECEIVERS
Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., the first manufacturer to bring Pandora® internet radio into the vehicle, is now helping consumers enjoy the service in their vehicles – commercial free!

Simply launch the Pandora app on the device and connect to a compatible Pioneer car stereo via a hardwired connection or Bluetooth® streaming to receive commercial-free listening through the end of 2013.
