Re: [podcasters] Re: AT&T internet service provider blocking iTunes subscriptions??
- I tried subscribing to your podcast in itunes and didn't have a problem
either. But I did notice your itunes url did not have a title in it
between the /podcast/ and the /id266594479 part
Mine is listed as follows
so it has the /dead-hunt-a-free-audiobook/ in between the "podcast" and
I grabbed another podcast at random and got
I tried a few others and they all have a title. Maybe that is what is
getting them hung up? Anything is possible when it comes to itunes LOL
I gave your link a title based on the name of your show and it brought
me to your itunes page no problem.
So try sending them to this link to subscribe instead
Then get them to click the blue "View in iTunes" button (NOT the logo
for your show, the blue button.). That new page links to the itunes
store WITH the title in the link. Maybe that will work for them.
Personally I think its an issue with their firewall and not your feed.
Maybe they recently installed Norton or something else that has taken
control of their firewall. Not having issues downloading content from
other podcasts is not a factor because they are already subscribed to
them. Ask them to subscribe to a new podcast other than yours and see if
they have the same issue.
