Listen to Pandora Radio in Canada : Choose VPN
VPN means Virtual Private Tunnel, in this case VPN will create an encrypted tunnel to a US server. This will allow all your traffic to appear to be coming from the USA. It will allow you to listen to Pandora Radio in Canada, watch Hulu Plus, HBO Go, Fox, American Netflix and all the other USA services. I use ExpressVPN, it takes a few minutes from setup “3 simple steps in general” to start listening to Pandora outside of USA. ExpressVPN sports great support and setup guides and a solid infrastructure. If you use IOS,Android, Mac or Windows you can install and use the ExpressVPN app which gets you running in seconds.
All of the VPN services below allow you to unblock Pandora Radio outside US.
Listen to Pandora Radio in Canada : Choose Smart DNS
Smart DNS is a no brainer, change your DNS codes and you are up and running. Smart DNS is a service that only changes the route for the traffic that is used by Pandora to identify what region you are from. By applying this smart logic, local traffic is unaffected and only the traffic that counts is redirected. The Smart DNS service in use on my devices is called Unlocator, they provide a free 7 day trial and the setup guides are self-explanatory. The only limitations against Smart DNS are Transparent Proxies and DNS Hijacking. If you ISP applies either of those two, you are left with VPN as your only choice. Video and screenshot guides can be seen here. If you apply Smart DNS a total of 90 other channels and sites get unblocked as well.
