Blubrry Podcasting, leaders in the industry for 14 years, launched its Podcast Network plugin for WordPress, available to any podcaster. The Podcast Network Plugin allows professional Blubrry hosting customers to create and share a network with other podcasts outside of the Blubrry hosting realm.
Professional Blubrry customers can utilize this plugin for free. Instead of designing and paying a developer to produce a network site, podcasters can now use the Podcast Network Plugin to create a network website that integrates up to 500 shows and integrates seamlessly with PowerPress, Blubrry’s podcast plugin.
“The most important factor was allowing this to work with podcasts not utilizing Blubrry hosting,” said Todd Cochrane, CEO of Blubrry. “Networks can include shows in a specific genre, alliances, or even business relationships, and we know shows aren’t always on the same host or team. We look forward to seeing shows – new and old – come together for their audiences.”
Podcasters are able to use any WordPress theme or additional plugins of their choosing as they always have on their website. The network plugin is a free add-on feature of the professional level plan. Shows can be added to the account for standard pro-pricing, and any podcast outside of the main Blubrry account for an additional tiered fee, starting at $50 for one-10 shows.
