Online music renaissance in Australia

A year or so ago, I complained about the dearth of music streaming services available. A couple of months ago, Spotify launched their service in Australia. Now, five long years after they started blocking Australian users from their service, Pandora has finally re-emerged in Australia. In his email to Australians who signed up for the service all that time ago, Pandora founder Tim Westergren wrote:

You can’t imagine how delighted we are to be able to bring Pandora back to you. We have been busy building the service in the U.S., but never gave up hope that we would someday return.

I, for one, am very happy to have Pandora back.

    Thanks for your note. There is not currently an iPad app available in Australia, but we’re working on it. We really appreciate your patience.

    In the meantime, you can listen to Pandora on your computer by going to

    If you have a WD Live you can use your pandora account through it – provided you have it connected to the internet via ethernet or wireless.

    Works quite well.

    Just go to the internet services menu and select pandora, enter your username and password and it downloads your stations and off you go.

    Still no sing of a local Pandora – iphone or ipad app.
