Hi @Jbail33! Sorry for any confusion over this. 

There is no hourly or daily skip limit for Pandora Premium stations and in that sense you will receive unlimited skips.

Though the majority of the songs in our collection will be eligible to be skipped without limits, you may encounter a portion of songs that are not eligible to be skipped due to our current licensing agreements. Since we're bound by our existing license to stream many of our tracks in a radio format, this option may not be available for some tracks.

Pandora is transitioning away from operating solely under statutory licensing and moving toward special agreements (direct licensing) with record labels and music publishers. Under statutory licensing, listeners are limited in the number of times they can skip songs on our stations or cannot replay certain tracks. By working directly with record labels/music publishers, we're allowed to operate with more flexibility -- including the ability to provide additional skips and replays for our listeners.

We know it can be frustrating to have to listen to a song you'd rather skip. When this happens, we suggest scrolling through your recently played tracks and selecting a song to replay. Or, as a Premium subscriber, you can create custom playlist that are not subject  to these licensing restriction. 

We are continuously working on increasing the amount of songs which can be skipped on our stations. Our intention is to provide enough music you enjoy to avoid any inconvenience around this.

Thanks for being part of community!

Fix premium skip limit

I pay for premium pandora on a family plan. Today I started getting messages that I wasnt allowed to skip songs due to licensing issues. That's part of the reason I pay for premium, and I havent had this issue before. Its happened 3 times today on the same station, even after closing out the app.
