Subscribers will further get access to additional perks such as direct access to episodes or an advertisement-free hearing experience. Podcasts Subscriptions will begin in 170 countries with original associates, involving NPR and Pushkin Industries.
The service will enable podcast producers to charge for their stuff. The previous month, Apple announced that it would have a 30 percent commission for the initial year of a subscription but lower commissions to 15 percent after that.
