No more ads if you fork over $5 a month.

Internet radio service Pandora updated its blog on Friday with information many users have long waited for: a paid version with no ads.

Called Pandora Plus, this version of the service will not only be ad-free, but will also let users skip songs, replay the ones they love, and listen to music offline. It will automatically queue the three stations you listen to the most for when you do go offline, so the trouble of selecting something new to listen to won’t even be an issue.

The service is $4.99 a month—half the price of Spotify’s Premium. It’ll make for a great option for those looking for a cheaper streaming music subscription, although it is still radio-centric so you can’t to listen to an entire album from one band. Pandora is also making changes to its free version. The company will be adding the option to watch an ad in order to skip or replay a song, giving users more control and a few more options without having to spend a penny.
