Internet radio listening expands outside of the office and into the home; and increases during evenings and on weekends.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 18 /PRNewswire/ - - Today, Slim Devices announced that the Pandora music service commands a greater than 50% share of Internet radio listening hours on its Squeezebox network music player. Pandora listeners stay connected longer to the music service than to other Internet radio stations, confirming that personalized radio changes how and where listeners enjoy music delivered over the internet.
Internet radio listening has traditionally peaked around noon, which highlights that the medium has historically been an "in -the -office" experience. Squeezebox is shifting these Internet radio listening patterns by providing consumers an easy way to connect their home stereo to the Internet, thereby enabling listening outside of the workplace. Listening to Internet radio via the Squeezebox peaks between 7 pm and 10 pm EST on weekdays, with weekend listening hours 20% higher than weekday listening hours.
Slim Devices and Pandora have been inundated with positive emails from customers. "I absolutely love my new Squeezebox," wrote Seth Rosen from New York City. "The Pandora integration is very simple. I had it running in less than a minute." Thierry Tacheny wrote, "Listening to Pandora through Squeezebox is a real true pleasure. I've been waiting for this for a long time."
Squeezebox v3 and Squeezebox2 owners can listen for free to Pandora for 90 -days. Customers can continue their Pandora service for only $36 per year.
