The Pandora Military plan discounts the service to $8 per month for those with qualified status, which includes active duty, reservists, retirees, veterans and military family. 

Other music-streaming sites offer special pricing for students. Apple Music unveiled its student plan in 2016. In 2017, Spotify added its $5 Premium for Students plan, which includes access to Hulu. Showtime added a special student plan in August. Deezer offers one, too. Of all of the major music streaming companies, only Pandora and Tidal offer a military discount.
