With Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, you can offer your fans premium benefits like ad-free listening, early access, and bonus episodes. Check out below how to set up your clips in Omny to offer Apple subscriber benefits. You'll first need to ensure your organization has turned on the Apple Podcast Subscription feature and that it has been set up properly.
By default, all episodes submitted through the Apple premium feature will offer an ad-free experience to Apple Podcasts subscribers, regardless of whether the episode is free (i.e published as a public or unlisted clip in Omny), or only available to subscribers (i.e. published as restricted in Omny).
You have the ability to control the ad experience for subscribers on free episodes.
If you want your subscribers to hear ads on free episodes:
Navigate to your playlist in Omny Studio
In the playlist Details tab, go to 'Advanced settings', and untick the Dynamic ad insertion option:
The setting change will be applied to all future public or unlisted clips you publish, including clips you transition from restricted to public/unlisted.
If you wish to apply the changes retroactively to your back catalog, reach out to Triton Support.
Note: restricted clips are not affected by by setting and will continue to be exclusively ad-free.
Set your subscriber-only episodes to 'Restricted', or schedule them to 'Restricted', and keep all other episodes as 'Public'.
Subscriber-only bonus episodes
Set your subscriber-only bonus episodes to 'Restricted', or schedule them to 'Restricted', and keep all other episodes as 'Public'.
Early access to episodes
Set your early-access episodes to 'Restricted', Save changes, then schedule them to become public.
Change the status of any 'Public' episode which you wish to only offer to your subscribers after a certain date to 'Restricted'. You can also schedule a date at which a clip should become 'Restricted'.
