Zune Debuts Podcast Directory, Podcast Reviews

Mar 19th, 2009 | By | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players, Podcast Directory Sites, Podcasting

Rob Greenlee, Microsoft Zune podcast producer, has passed along information about the new Zune podcast directory:

“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.

    Microsoft really needs to do something big to turn the Zune around, and this isn’t it.

    Doesn’t matter – this Zune looks very interesting. Especially the design looks great…
