Hi @larrydeman! Welcome to community!

I've created a new post for you, since it sounds like you're trying to activate Pandora on your DirecTV.

For other listener that may be activating an in-home device, such as a TV or receiver, you can use the following steps to activate your device: 

  • Launch the Pandora application.
  • Select New User.
  • An activation page will appear with a code - leave this code up on the device screen as you continue.

From the web, visit www.pandora.com/[brand of device] and enter the activation code there. For example, for activating DirecTV, you'll enter www.pandora.com/directv or if you'd like to activate your Samsung, www.pandora.com/samsung

Or, if you prefer to use a mobile device, open the Pandora app and go to Settings, then tap Device Activation and enter the code.

Finally, select Continue on the in-home device.

I am able to get an activation code on my new 85" sony tv in the pandora app, but there is no place to enter the activation code on this pandora website page  - there is definitely no "device management" field to enter.

 

When I googled pandora activation code and got a pandora website and entered my code there - nothing happened! **ahem**?  how can it be this hard?

Hi @Anitaishot69! Welcome to community. 👋

I moved your post to a thread about your topic: Activating Pandora on in-home devices 

If you'd like to activate Pandora on an in-home device, or a device at a hotel room, such as a Smart TV or Blu-ray player, you can do so using the following steps:

  • Launch the Pandora application
  • Select New User
  • An activation page will appear with a code - leave this code up on the device screen as you continue
  • From the web: Visit pandora.com/[brand of device] and enter the activation code there (For example: www.pandora.com/samsung)

Alternatively, from a mobile device: Open the Pandora app and go to Settings, then tap Device Activation and enter the code. Then select Continue on the in-home device.
