Our Podlove Subscribe Button has been adopted by Germany’s public radio Deutschlandradio which operates four national networks and is the undisputed leader in high quality radio programming in the German speaking world.
In a blog post by Deutschlandradio Lab project leader Boris Bittner details the reasons for adopting the button including the PSB being open source, easy to use and easy to integrate and touting the hope that more public radio stations and private podcasters will follow its example sooner than later.
We have been supporting Deutschlandradio in this process and welcome anybody who wants to follow suit. Contact us if you have questions and/or suggestions and we are happy to help.
While Podlove was started with supporting the global independent podcast landscape in general we see great benefits for the public radio and free radio projects too. We want to keep the podcast market open and free from platform constraints and invite everybody to collaborate and team up with us to achieve this goal together.
About the Podlove Subscribe Button
The Podlove Subscribe Button (PSB) is Podlove’s approach to easily integrate podcasts with the web allowing listeners to quickly subscribe to podcast from the publishers’ own websites using their preferred podcast application or podcast cloud service. With just a few easy taps or clicks anybody can subscribe to the content they cherish and love without hassle or hindrance.
The PSB works with all popular operating systems and platforms and welcomes developers to jump onboard with just a few tiny and standard-conforming enhancements to their apps. Podcasters or podcast directory
Podlove will continue to enhance and evolve the button to cover all available apps and services, to improve the user experience even more and is planning to bring new features and updates to the button soon that will make it even more useful in the near future.
