Simply called an Apple Podcasts subscription, you’ll be able to buy into your favorite shows and grouped podcast channels.
Apple Podcasts subscriptions are live until Tuesday, so you can buy subscriptions to channels for individual podcasts and shows. The Marketplace is live worldwide and includes shows from brands such as NPR, The Washington Post and CNN, as well as individual producers such as Dave Chappelle, Beth Silver, and Sarah Stewart Holland.
The creators have set prices for subscriptions, which start at 50 cents a month. Creators can also offer monthly or yearly billing.
You can access both the new Marketplace and your purchased content. You’ll be able to play your podcast on a variety of Apple devices, such as And this except you .
Once you’ve purchased a subscription, you’ll be able to see a new “Subscriber Edition” label on the show of your choice and recommendations for that show will pop up in various tabs of the app, such as “Listen Now.” After you’ve subscribed to two or more channels, you’ll see a “My Channels” row in the Listen Now tab so you can quickly find the podcasts you’ve paid for and start listening.
