Vudu Adds Pandora Music Streaming

Video streaming service adds Pandora's customized music channels


Vudu said that the music-streaming service Pandora is available on its TV set-top box. Vudu customers can create new music channels and personalize them by adding Pandora's genre picks and "thumbing" songs up and down as they play.

Pandora on Vudu also supports multiple accounts. That enables family members to set up their own Pandora stations and control them with Vudu's nifty remote. It's all part of Vudu's effort, launched late last year, to open its box to other Web-based services as Vudu competes in the increasingly crowded field of streaming Internet entertainment.
