Radio Service Pandora announced a 40 hour listening limit for customers using the service on a mobile. Users will be notified when they near their limit, but the move is to affect most users as not more than four percentage (4%) of their total monthly active subscriber. The average listener spends approx twenty hours listening to Pandora across all devices in any given
month according to statistics. According to Pandora Blog, limiting listening is a very unusual thing to do, its per-track royalty rates have increased more than twenty-five percentage over the last three years, including nine percentage in 2013. This forty hours per month mobile listening limit allows Pandora to manage these increasing costs.
You can listen for free for as many hours as desired on your desktop and laptop, you just need to pay $0.99 for unlimited listening for the end of the month. Or you can pay $36 for full year subscription. Listeners located outside US, Australia and New Zealand have no access to Pandora Service.
