    I was flicking through the apps on app world and I was wondering, how come there's so few apps for services like music streaming? And speaking of which is there any word on Pandora going live outside of the US?

    From their official site:
    Can I listen to Pandora outside of the United States?

    Unfortunately, no: we can only stream Pandora to listeners within the United States.

    Pandora has always believed strongly in honoring licensing and royalty guidelines as determined by the artists, labels and publishers. In the U.S. there is a federal statute called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that provides a comprehensive license for streaming music via Pandora and similar services. At this time, there is no equivalent music licensing system outside the USA.


    However, no matter where you are in the world, you can access non-music-streaming features of the site, such as music recommendations and artist information, by directly visiting Search for Artists, Songs, Stations and People - Backstage at Pandora.

    Also, if you visit the Pandora Radio - Listen to Free Internet Radio, Find New Music homepage, you may enter your email address to be notified if and when Pandora becomes available legally in your country.


    In all honesty, we don't have the resources to pursue music-streaming licensing arrangements in many countries in the immediate future, but we do have the ultimate goal of being able to offer our service globally. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support.
