Pandora makes its way to TiVo Premiere

Those hoping to increase their music listening on a TiVo can now do so with the help of Pandora. The only catch is the service is available to TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL owners.

Pandora is now available on TiVo Premiere and TiVo Premiere XL boxes, TiVo announced today.

All in all, TiVo's Pandora offering isn't all that different from versions of the service available on other devices. Users can access all of their stations from TiVo. They can also create new stations from the set-top box. As with every other Pandora installation, users are able to say whether they like a song to personalize their stations.

TiVo is a little late to the Pandora game. Currently, the music service is available on a slew of devices, including Roku set-top boxes, Viera Cast-equipped Panasonic devices, Vizio's Internet apps, and more. The service is also available on iOS, Android OS, and BlackBerry OS, to name a few.

Pandora is available for free on the TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL boxes. Legacy devices are not supported. TiVo did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether the service will be offered on older boxes in the future.
