Acast launches paid platform for premium podcast access
Podcast network Acast has launched a new feature on its hosting platform that allows show creators alternative ways of monetizing their work. With Acast+, programs can charge listeners for exclusive access and premium audio content without advertisements. They can also make early releases available before they are published to the core app for a fee. A roster of shows such as HorseHour Podcast, The Football Ramble, Flash Forward, and How to Kill An Hour have already signed on to this program.
