Update: It’s March 1st, and we’ve launched Pandora + Squeezebox. Click here for all the details.
We’ve got something pretty exciting to share tonight. David Pogue over at the New York Times just broke the news that on March 1st Pandora is coming to the Slim Devices Squeezebox:
“the Squeezebox will do something no other hi-fi component can do: it will hook into Pandora… Slim Devices predicts that Pandora will become a wildly popular feature, and that’s probably true.” (read the entire story)
The Squeezebox, as Pogue’s story attests, is simply the best way to deliver digital music to your home stereo. It’s a beautiful device, with an elegant user interface and exceptional audio quality. Plug it into your home network (wired or wireless) and enjoy Pandora from the comfort of your couch. You’ll be able to listen to all of the stations you’ve been creating at Pandora.com, rate songs, and bookmark favorites all with a simple remote control. Pandora-on-Squeezebox will available to Pandora subscribers ($36 for a year or $12 for three months) and will work with any Squeezebox 2 as well as the new (and very beautiful) Squeezebox 3.
To get you started, on March 1st, Pandora will be offering a free 90 day subscription to new and current Squeezebox 2 and 3 owners. When you connect your Squeezenetwork account with your ad-supported-free Pandora.com account (you’ll do this from your account page at the Squeezenetwork website) we’ll automatically upgrade you to a 90-day-free subscription on Pandora. No credit card required. In the meantime, have fun listening to Pandora online for free.
