Options for streaming without using mobile data

Can Boost users stream Pandora without using their mobile data ( I'm not talking about using wi-fi) through some special arrangement? Does Pandora have this agreement with other mobile companies? What are these mobile companies?

@5682 There are not currently any plans that offer the ability to stream Pandora without using mobile data or WiFi.

Because of our content licensing agreements and the dynamic nature of our service, you will need to have either an internet or cellular network connection in order to stream Pandora.

Our ad-supported service operates under a license that doesn't allow us to download stations to user devices. Additionally, unlike other music services, your stream can change depending on your feedback (Thumbs up, down, "I'm tired of this track", etc.). As a result, we need to process each song or podcast episode as a separate audio stream, which requires a network connection.

That being said, we do offer an offline listening option for Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium subscribers. For more info on Pandora Plus or Pandora Premium, please visit our help page.

Hope this helps explain! 😎
