Put on a show like never before.

Discover channels.

Channels are a simple way for you to group your shows. Build a unique brand around your channel with a logo, artwork, and description. Each show has its own benefits and the channel can be unlocked with a single purchase.

It pays to share your stories.

You have more ways than ever to earn revenue through your podcast. With Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, you receive 70% of the subscription price at each billing cycle, minus applicable taxes. After a subscriber accumulates one year of paid service, your net revenue increases to 85% of the subscription price, minus applicable taxes. Your other podcast revenue — including any ads — will stay 100% yours.

Get started with premium subscriptions.

Join the Apple Podcasters Program to start offering premium subscriptions. Apple will distribute and protect your episodes, but you’ll always own your show and control where it’s listed. The Apple Podcasters Program is available in over 170 countries and regions for an annual fee. If you have administrator privileges for your podcast, you can add a subscription to a channel by following these steps:

  1. Sign in to Apple Podcasts Connect. If you don’t have an account yet, you can create one.
  2. Join the Apple Podcasters Program. You can sign up for the program on your Account page.
  3. Complete the Apple Podcasters Program agreement. You’ll need to sign this agreement if you want to sell subscriptions and receive payments from Apple.
  4. Set up your show for a subscription. Add subscriber audio or create a show in Apple Podcasts Connect with subscriber audio.
  5. Create a channel. You’ll need to create a channel before you can add a subscription. To do that, go to the Podcasts page, click +, then select New Channel.
