Answer: 
The following statement found in an earlier answer does not correspond to the answer I was given by LG that Pandora was included in LG DVD/Blueray machines (no speakers at all with them):
"Pandora is not specified for this TV. Since Pandora is an Internet Radio, that is a feature that is generally found on our products with actual stereo speakers, such as a Home Theater System."
What I don't understand is LG shows Pandora as being a feature on this TV on there web info site and then they say it is not, and wont be available on this TV. I for one am very disappointed.

Answer: 
This television was designed for operations with Yahoo! TV Widgets, Netflix Instant Streaming, Vudu Streaming, YouTube, and Picasa. Skype should also be available, once the unit is connected to the LG Skype camera. If this camera has not been attached, then this is likely what the “Coming Soon” box is. Pandora is not specified for this TV. Since Pandora is an Internet Radio, that is a feature that is generally found on our products with actual stereo speakers, such as a Home Theater System.

Answer: 
You need to purchase a "dongle"; a USB device that is specifically to link to wi-fi LG TV's. I have one for sale(cheap) if you're interested.
