Hey dudes and dudettes...
I love this forum. You guys make me laugh every day.
Anyhow, the other day I stumbled upon an awesome station on Pandora called Calm Meditation. Love it, love it, love it. I've already fallen asleep to it on three different occasions.
I was sure that I've used at least 20 listening hours this month, so I jumped on my laptop to see how many hours I have left.
To my surprise, it says I have 39 hours left (you get 40 hours a month).
Do you know if the hours we use Pandora on our Nooks count against our listening hours?
Thanks in advance.

The 40 hour limit is for "free" users, interrupted by occassional commercial breaks. You can subscribe to go unlimited, but 40 hours is a lot and the breaks aren't really that annoying. I believe mobile usage counts as the device asks you to sign in to Pandora to start listening.

The use minutes do not count on Pandora on mobile devices, Roku, or Tivos. They only count when using the pc with the free account. I have the pandora free account and have used pandora with Tivo. The minutes are not counted when using the tivo device and I think it was on Tivo community forum that someone had said the Pandora minutes do not count.
I would not worry about the minutes.

For your computer if you run out of time you can pay 99 cents for the rest of that month. Or you can pay $36 to Pandora One for one full year.

I have no limit on my hours, no ads and can skip more songs. I also have a desktop application. I've been a paid subscriber for almost 4 years because I like to support the services that I most enjoy.

Thanks for the station suggestion! You got laurel'd! I'm listening to Calm Meditations now while I'm sitting on my patio; nice music for the setting.
