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.

    This would be even cooler if you guys could release a satelite radio version of this for cars since that would be perfect to have, I never got into that satelite stuff but its really cool but having this set up to it would be 10 times better. I know it probably wont happen since its a whole lot harder and completly different from what this is but thats what im waiting for.

    pandora.com rocks. i am a new convert-but a dedicated one. keep up the great work. one question-my 13 month old daughter wants to rock too, however her taste is more to the sesame street genre. do you have any tips to find kids music?(i have no clue as to artists, and song names tend to pop up jazz-i like the jazz but it isn`t what miya is looking for.)

    Did you know that Pandora was reviewed by "Veja", Brazil's most important magazine? Pretty cool.

    I already have a my Tivo /Stereo System hooked up to my home network and enjoy shoutcast radio, video, pictures, etc but I would love to listen to Pandora! I just need a way to use Pandora via this working setup (no need for Slimbox). Someone want to write something? :-)

    This is incredibly exciting! I can't wait to try it. However, as someone who just spent >$500 having his squeezebox modified for better sound quality, I have to second Dan's comments about the 128kbps limit. Many squeezeboxes will be connected to audio systems that really require a higher bit-rate to sound decent. Please tell me you're working on that, because pandora would instantly become the ONLY internet radio worth listening to.
