The brand-new Apple Podcasts Subscriptions platform is expected to introduce this month, and Apple continues to reach handle high-profile studios. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the Wondery podcast studio, owned by Amazon, will provide its Wondery+ subscription service through Apple Podcasts.
The Wondery+ subscription costs $4.99 monthly or $34.99 per year, and the rate will be the very same on Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, regardless of Apple taking a cut of earnings. Wondery+ uses ad-free versions of the studios podcasts, in addition to early access to choose material and perk episodes.
In a statement, Wondery CEO Jen Sargent discussed:
” Were excited to accompany Apple on the next chapter of podcasting and are motivated by the chances this membership offering opens up for the podcast industry as a whole. Through this opportunity, well be offering our listeners on Apple Podcasts simple access to Wondery+ while bringing them the very same immersive listening experience theyve grown to like and know.”
Especially, a report in 2015 tipped that Apple was among the companies thinking about getting Wondery for between $300 million and $400 million. Eventually, Amazon wound up getting the company for an undisclosed amount. The news that Wondery+ content is concerning Apple Podcasts Subscriptions is great news for fans who fretted Amazon could silo the material off to within its own community.
Wondery has developed a range of popular podcasts concentrated on culture, innovation, and more. Last year, it was announced that Apple TV+ would develop a minimal series telling the story of WeWork, based on the Wondery podcast “WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork.”
The Apple Podcasts Subscriptions function will enable users to pay developers straight for programs and get bonus content, ad-free episodes, and more. The platform is expected to launch sometime this month, most likely as part of iOS 14.6.
