(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - If you spend a lot of time listening to Pandora on your mobile phone, you may soon be forced to cut back or pay up.
The music service is introducing a 40 hour per month cap for free mobile listening to manage growing royalty costs.
Pandora says the cap will allow it to manage the rising cost of what it pays per track, but there are a few ways to keep the music playing.
You can pay 99 cents to keep listening for the rest of the month, or listen all you want on your computer for free.
There's also a $3.99 per month subscription option that will let you listen ad free.
