Do you remember how Apple tried to acquire the podcast studio? Wonder or at least that’s what was said? In the end, the company ended up being bought out by Amazon, and today we have their reaction to the new Apple Podcasts payment platform: join her without any complaints
They comment exclusively from the Hollywood Reporter: Wondery’s original podcast catalog will be offered natively in Apple’s Podcast app with the name of Wondery + and the benefits of being able to listen to these podcasts ad-free, ahead of time or even with exclusive content for subscribers.
Same fees despite Apple podcast fees
Jen Sargent, CEO of Wondery, rates Apple Podcast subscriptions as “the next chapter of podcasting
The subscription will cost $ 4.99 per month or $ 34.99 per year (less than $ 3 per month), and beware: this is the same price they offer on other platforms. That is to say: Wondery (or Amazon for this purpose) billed with the additional cost of Apple fees
Wondery should be part of the initial catalog of Apple Podcast subscriptions once it launches at the end of the month. From 9to5Mac, they bet it will be with the arrival of iOS 14.6, the third beta of which launched yesterday.
