Pandora Radio has moved yet even deeper into the digital media realm of access with the addition of Pandora to the FiOS TV service, a la Verizon as middle man. This means that FiOS TV subscribers can receive Pandora on their TV using their Motorola high-definition (HD) set-top box or Motorola DVR.
"Bringing FiOS TV and Pandora together creates another exceptional home-entertainment experience for our customers because FiOS networks your home and combines personalized Internet music with your entertainment center," said Eric Bruno, vice president of product management for Verizon in a press release.
Indeed. The merging of the home entertainment system / computer / video and audio experience is de riguer these days, and The Wall Street Journal is claiming that FiOS TV is the first TV provider to provide Pandora as part of its service, although it was part of the Google TV launch last year.
The Pandora / FiOS TV deal will let users California, Texas and Virginia listen to streaming music on the TV set by grabbing the Pandora app from the FiOS TV application store.
Pandora recently announced that it has 100 million registered users and 36 million monthly active users, dwarfing any U.S.-based streaming music service. They're also expanding further into the car market, and will launch an epic Pandora redesign with the inclusion of new social features and and HTML5 set up.
