AT&T Wireless To Offer Pandora Internet Radio

AT&T WIRELESS is teaming up with PANDORA MEDIA to give subscribers the option to listen to some of their favorite artists through PANDORA's Internet radio service. AT&T's customers will be able to save up to 100 stations on their wireless devices. The wireless company is making the service available for $8.99 a month.
PANDORA offers technology designed to help people find new music. A customer simply types in the name of a favorite song or artist on a phone or computer keypad. The company's MUSIC GENOME PROJECT system then will pick other songs the individual might like based on melody, harmony, rhythm, instrumentation, arrangement, lyrics and vocals.
AT&T, in turn, will offer a way to buy the song through its AT&T Mobile Music Store.
PANDORA has offered an online version of its radio service since 2000. This partnership with AT&T will continue the expansion of Internet radio, PANDORA Founder TIM WESTERGREN says.
In addition to the subscription service with PANDORA, AT&T also has business relationships with NAPSTER, EMUSIC, satellite radio provider XM RADIO and APPLE, INC.
