Music streaming individually is not that expensive at around $10 a month, but imagine if you have a family of five. That’s when things get expensive. If everyone were to subscribe it would cost $50 a month, and this is why we’re seeing companies offer its subscribers a cheaper alternative in the form of family plans.
Apple and Spotify offer up family plans, but maybe Pandora is more your style. If so, you’ll be pleased to learn that Pandora has also announced their own family plan. It is called the Premium Family plan and this plan will cost users $15 a month which puts it on par with other music popular streaming services.
With this family plan, users can grant up to six family members access to Pandora’s premium service. There will be no ads and it will offer up better quality audio streaming. Users who are already subscribed to the regular individual plan can switch plans at any time. Just head on over to the Settings menu, hit “Switch Plans”, and that’s it.
Pandora recently confirmed that they have a little over 5 million paid subscribers, but it is possible that this new family plan could encourage more users to hop on board so they can raise those numbers.
