who has it? TiVo has the app, but you need a subscription

Heh, every time I see someone ask about Pandora (which was included in Contour 1 and removed in Contour 2), a cox rep says they will share the comments with the product development team, but nothing happens. How hard is it to have the app button, or will Pandora not give Cox any more money, so screw the Cox subscribers? During the holidays, they can add a stupid holiday game, but no Pandora?!?
Jan, I have Pandora on my Contour 1. I get the feeling that Cox doesn't see many customers using it. it performs poorly. I have posted 2 forum questions about Pandora problems and only one person responded.
If Pandora were to be added to Contour 2 I suspect that it would perform just as frustratingly slow and lethargic as does Netflix on Contour 2. I have it (Pandora) added as a channel on my Roku Ultra, where it responds equally as responsive as does Netflix (on a Roku). If you're that much a fan of Pandora *and* also happen to have a Roku or similar device (such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Chromecast) I would heartily recommend listening to it from that streaming device.

Maybe I was lucky, but Pandora works/worked equally well on my phone, computers, Rokus, Bluray players, etc. It was just nice to have it a couple of buttons away vs. having to find other remotes to change to the appropriate inputs. Correct, I don't need it on the box as I have multiple other ways to access the service (as I have multiple ways to access Netflix), it's just the fact that it was there and they took it away...
