What is Pandora and how do I access it on my TV?


Pandora is an internet radio service (www.pandora.com) that lets you create your own radio stations that play only the music you like. You enter an artist, composer, or track, and Pandora creates a virtual radio station that plays only songs it thinks you'll like based on your entry. You can create up to 100 different radio stations to suit whatever you're in the mood for.

To access Pandora on your TV, you must have an HD DVR connected to the Internet and a Pandora account. You can set up a FREE account by going to www.pandora.com/directv on your computer. If you're all set, start enjoying your Pandora radio stations on your TV right now:

  • Press the MENU button on your remote
  • Select Extras
  • Select Pandora

All of the stations and customizations you've set up for Pandora on your computer apply to Pandora on your TV.
