No access to Pandora.com :(

Not really a complaint, but since it's not the Internet in general, I didn't know where else to put this?

Back in the UK, I used to put on www.pandora.com while I was at work. Basically, it's an internet radio which is free to use - you put in a song title or artist, and it then raids a massive database of music and plays you songs that are similar to it. You can pay to be able to skip tracks, or choose specific songs, or you can access for free and just let it play away on whatever comes up.

So today, I have a ton of stuff to unpack from the office move, and I figured some music would be nice while I did it - however the site gives me the following message:

Quote:
Dear Pandora Visitor,
We are deeply, deeply sorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allow access to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. We will continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a truly global Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict its use. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no other alternative.
We believe that you are in Switzerland (your IP address appears to be 85.3.140.146). If you believe we have made a mistake, we apologize and ask that you please contact us at pandora-support@pandora.com
If you are a paid subscriber, please contact us at pandora-support@pandora.com and we will issue a pro-rated refund to the credit card you used to sign up. If you have been using Pandora, we will keep a record of your existing stations and bookmarked artists and songs, so that when we are able to launch in your country, they will be waiting for you.
We will be notifying listeners as licensing agreements are established in individual countries. If you would like to be notified by email when Pandora is available in your country, please enter your email address below. The pace of global licensing is hard to predict, but we have the ultimate goal of being able to offer our service everywhere.
We share your disappointment and greatly appreciate your understanding.
Sincerely,



Tim Westergren
Founder
I'm a little bit gutted about this, I found loads of wierd and wonderful bands and tracks from Pandora picking them out based on a track I liked - I know it's a long shot, but does anyone know of anything similar that is available in Switzerland?
