You can listen to Pandora ad-free today, here’s how to do it outside the US

Pandora, a music streaming service available in the United States, turns 10 today and to celebrate, it’s giving users a day of listening without ads.

The celebration will last 24 hours, from 12 to 12 Eastern Time. The company also announced that from tomorrow users will be able to buy a $0.99 “one-day pass” for a day of music without ads.

At the moment of writing I’m in Mexico and taking advantage of the ad-free streaming celebration on my iPhone. It’s actually pretty simple to do it and won’t cost you a dime.

Download betternet’s free iOS app on the App Store and install the VPN’s profile on your device by following the on-screen instructions. Now head to the app and turn on the cost-free VPN on you iPhone to start listening to a radio station on Pandora.

You will need a Pandora account to enjoy free streaming on your iPhone or iPad, but you can create it right in the app.


That “zero ads” promotion means no ads from companies like Ford or Coca-Cola, but you will still hear Pandora’s founder reminding you of the service’s 10th celebration every three songs.

You also get a 4-skip limit with every radio station. Did you enjoy the tutorial? Please leave your comments below.
