Sadly, Pandora streaming radio is leaving Australia and New Zealand. However, Aussies and Kiwis can keep listening to Pandora beyond this date with these simple tricks.
The simplest and best trick to use to keep listening to Pandora in Australia is to use a smart DNS. These services trick Pandora’s servers into thinking you are located in the United States. More great news is that smart DNS will also unblock hundreds of other streaming services around the globe including BBC iPlayer, HBO Now and Netflix’s superior US movie library.
I recommend you consider two services, Unlocator and Getflix. The advantage of Unlocator is that is has a free trial so you can try it out first risk free (followed by a paid subscription services) while Getflix offers a one-payment lifetime subscription.
If you intend to use Pandora from a Windows PC or Mac then a smart DNS is the way to go to keep listening to Pandora after it leaves Australia.
Virtual Private Networks
Virtual Private Networks or VPNs tunnel your internet traffic through encrypted overseas servers that trick Pandora that your device is located in the United States so you can keep listening to Pandora.
VPNs are best if you want to keep streaming Pandora on the go using your smartphone (note Getflix above also includes a smart VPN service).
So, if anyone asks you for alternatives to Pandora now that it is shutting down in Australia you can proudly show them how easy it is to keep on listening to Pandora anywhere in the world.
