Ad Feedback - Too many ads

Pandora loses listeners due to the constant ads i mean i paid for the service once and made a mistake and emptied my bank account before pandora pulled their payment out and it bounced the **ahem** out of my account so i cancelled but i like pandora i listen to it daily but what i noticed is it's like they are pushing subscriptions by adding more and more ads and what i mean is this morning i turned it on to get ready to leave and i logged on to a ad but oh well who cares right an after a song started i was like ok cool then after 1 song i get 2 more ads now that's 3 ads in a 7min period and then i got more music but after 2 song's i get 2 more ads so now it's gotten to the point that it's out of control and soon i will be changing platforms now don't get me wrong i don't want to leave but when there are more ads then music itself it's time to leave but i will stick around longer till i get completely fed up

I seem to be encountering way more ads than usual sometimes it plays an ad every other song that's annoying

Pandora has lost me as a customer due to the ads. No one should have to view ads if they don’t want to. There is a United States Supreme Court case supporting this. The fact your app stops ad blockers from blocking your ads is unconstitutional. And against Supreme Court rulings. Stop the ads. Block the ads.

Why does skipping a song usually result in listening to an advertisement?? Seems like a ploy to get more ads in... And does it also have some correlation that doesn't let you get ads with hour free listening? Or should we just use Spotify? 

Did pandora do away with the Ad prompts for commercial free hours?? If so I guess I'll have to just close the ap and reopen it everything I don't want to listen to an advertisement

No joke, I’ve been getting 1 ad for every song. I’ve been listening for 25 minutes, got 6 songs, 7 ads. No skipping, no thumbs up or down. Only playing one station. This is ridiculous. It’s unlistenable. The radio is better than this garbage. The ad to songs ratio is way off. I’m going to have to walk away from Pandora at this point.

Not sure who's bright idea having ads every 10 minutes was, but trust me that it will backfire.  I didn't mind the ads for freemium as long as it was a fair value trade.  At this point it's getting close to music/ad parity.  It's too much.  I'm finding another provider.

I do not mind listening to ads. But the last two days I have listened to Pandora, I hear 2 songs, and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial. 2 Songs and a Tide Commercial.

^^^^ Do you see how annoying that is. Imagine listening to it.  I have had a Pandora account for over a decade. But I am ready to let it go and do youtube playlists instead. Who would have ever thought Youtube ads would be preferable?

Open pandora, first thing that plays is an AD.

Close pandora.

Don't open pandora again when so many other choices are available that will at Least let me hear A song.

 

Terrible service.

 

Not to mention 90 percent of the ads are for Your premium.

Why would I support you?
