These days, Pandora is everywhere. It's available in the browser, phones, tablets, even cars. Today, a new addition is added: the TV.

Pandora today released a brand new browser based experience designed specifically for TV sets and set top boxes. This includes the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The interface is currently available now by pointing your browser to tv.pandora.com.

In their blog post detailing the new addition, they show importance to the living room, and with many TV sets connected to home theater systems the family hub is now the TV and not the family stereo. Pandora says that over 10 million users use Pandora through an internet connected TV set.

If you visit tv.pandora.com in a desktop browser such as Chrome you won't get the new interface. Instead, you'll get a page containing instructions on how to access Pandora TV on an Xbox (hopefully they'll change that to PS3 as well).
