Can anyone confirm that Pandora streams at the higher bit rate through Directv if you sign up for a Pandora One subscription?

No, it does not. It is 128kb AAC+ regardless. What you do get is no commercials, and longer playtime before the "Are you still listening" prompt.

Pandora One app on a computer is the only 192kb delivery.

My 87 year old friend likes to listen to Classic Country and thinks this one on Pandora is better than channel 808 or similar Classic Country stations. He even says the sound quality is good or better than the 800's channels. I subscribed to Pandora so I don't get any of the advertisements on them. We also have iPad2 and iPod 4th gen so, thought subscription was a wise decision. In all honesty, Sunday mornings aren't really the only times we listen to Pandora.

If I had D* connected to broadband I would use Pandora. When I had the app on my ipod I listened to it all the time. I unloaded a bunch of apps to make room for a trip and unfortunately never put it back. Maybe I'll put it back on now.
