On my Altice One app on my TV, the music used to start playing automatically after I select a channel, and continue without intervention until I stop it or choose something else. Now, when I start a channel, I see the song information but it doesn't start playing. I notice that in the slider that usually goes from "0:00" to the length of the song, where it would normally show the song length, I see dashes "--:--". If I press the pause button and then the play button, the song will play and the dashes will be replaced by the song length, as normal. However, when it goes to the next song, and each succeeding song, the same behavior happens each time. This happens no matter which channel I select. How do we restore the automatic play?
this is definitely a problem with altice app on there service if it was a pure pandora issue it would effect all devices just went to pandora app on my ruko Television had no problem at all with the pandora worked fine altice is the problem not linking properly with pandora app
Pandora Update (03/02/2021): Thank you all for your posts and device details.
Our engineering team is working with Altice One on this issue.
We appreciate your patience during this process. 🎧
This has been going on for months....I’ve been with Pandora for over 10 years! I am really disappointed in the lack of response to this issue, which is obviously of concern to many subscribers.
Can Pandora please contact either Suddenlink or Altice to discuss this problem. It’s very obvious there is a conflict between the app and Altice’s software. But it seems that neither party is willing to step up and offer any assistance. It’s true that the problem may very well be on Suddenlink’s side. But, they won’t acknowledge that there is a problem either. Please take a little initiative to help out these many loyal customers.
I also am experiencing this same exact problem. Altice is saying they can not assist. It has been months. I love Pandora but have been using Stingray since this problem hasn't been corrected.
I open Pandora and play the first song on any of my selected stations. After EVERY song, it stops, at the end of the song. I have to hit the pause and then play button to get the next song to play, and then, same thing, stops at the end of the song. How do I correct this? I see lots of other people have a similar issue. This is on my smart TV using Altice One (Optimum) as my provider.
Not only am I having this exact issue on an Optimum Altice One, but it's also playing very choppy when I press play to go to the next song. It's like listening to an old vinyl record or CD skipping through a song. 😞 Whatever conflict is happening between Altice and Pandora, it's made the app unusable.
Any resolution to this issue? It's happening with my Vzio TV. I have Altice Cable and they said it wasn't thier issuse. It used to work properly. One day it just stopped playing th songs continuously.
OK, but that is non-answer. The same thing is happening to me, and it would be greatly appreciated if Pandora (and ALL businesses) would stop using stock, and basically useless and condescending answers. A better and more respectful response would state what the problem is (or might be), what is actually being done and when you expect a resolution
I am having the same issue with Altice/Optimum. Altice claims it is not thy're issue and pandora has yet to resolve it. It used to work fine months ago. I'm going to another provider, other than Pandora, they suck!
There is one solution..! 0ptimum is a Rip Off Company... Get rid of them and get another TV Provider..! I have been with Optimum for three months now... They have NOT fixed one problem for me... I signed up for a $55 dollar deal per month. For TV and Internet... THAT TURNED INTO $ 83.50 the very same month..!
I am switching to Spectrum this month..!!!
Can't believe that Pandora can't solve this problem. It's been many many months that they are aware that this is an issue with Altice. If nothing else, just tell us that Altice **ahem** (which we already know) and that there's no way to fix the problem as long as we're an Altice subscriber.
Add me to this list. I have Altice One also, via Suddenlnk, and it just started happening today. When Pandora played through of sources, no problem! This is very frustrating!
