Zune Debuts Podcast Directory, Podcast ReviewsMar 19th, 2009 | By Elisabeth Lewin | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players, Podcast Directory Sites, Podcasting
“Podcast feed URL’s can now be submitted to the Zune digital media entertainment platform through the new Zune.net web-based podcast directory. This new podcast directory has over 12,000 podcast feeds online now and also accepts podcast reviews to be added to a podcaster’s show page. Here is the direct URL address to the new web-based podcast directory at Zune.net – http://social.zune.net/podcasts/ .
“So, if you are a Apple Mac only user you can now get to the Zune directory via the web. And those who create podcasts can now visit the site and submit their feed. Podcasters can get active, [encouraging their listeners and viewers to submit] reviews and comments about their podcast on their Zune.net podcast directory pages.
“Podcasters who have active feeds in the Zune podcast directory can also direct-link to their podcasts in the Zune 3.1 Marketplace software by visiting this page and search for their podcasts – http://social.zune.net/links/ZuneLinks.aspx or can link directly to their web-based page.”
This is the first new podcast directory to come online in a long time, and I’m glad to see (at least a tiny little) reaching out to all the podcast creators who do their work on a Mac.
The ability to submit reviews of podcasts, for display on the podcast series’ page, is a great one for helping podcast viewers and listeners discover which shows to download.
