For Podcast UFO Premium Content Members

Different podcast apps use different methods for subscribing to a premium/paid subscription podcast. Instructions for some are included below. Here is a list of podcast apps.

Podcast UFO Player subscription RSS feed URL: http://rss.podcastufo.com 

Please note: to access the  Player subscription RSS feed you must enter your subscription Email Address (which is your PayPal email address) and Password, and these are case-sensitive, so if you enter them with capitals when you signup you must enter exactly the same when accessing the feed.

Instructions:

iTunes (Windows):
Launch your iTunes application
Click on the ADVANCED pulldown menu
Select Subscribe To Podcast
Copy the feed URL above into the URL field in iTunes
Click OK

Apple Podcasts App (iOS):

Earlier versions
Tap the “MY PODCASTS” button on the lefthand side of the bottom menu.
Enter the feed URL into the “Search My Podcasts” field at the top of the screen (pull down on the screen to reveal the search field if you can’t see it)
Hit the SEARCH button on your keyboard.
Enter your Member Email Address and Password when prompted.

Here are some tips for if an app does NOT have a place for user/pass a user can enter their login credentials into the URL field of their podcast app.

http://email@domain.com:password@rss.podcastufo.com   

http://email__domain.com:password@rss.podcastufo.com     – replace @ with two _

In the event your domain or email contains two underscores, use this last version:

http://email___domain.com:password@rss.podcastufo.com   – replace @ with three _

Example: http://john.Doe__aol.com:PASWORD@rss.podcastufo.com/

The reason for the THREE formats is that some podcast apps don’t pass the @ sign in the URL causing issues.  So, I am allowing two or three underscores to help with that.   This covers most if not all of the podcast apps.

Tap Add on the bottom bar, tap Add Podcast Manually. Enter the feed URL into the Feed field:
