Earlier today i posted about the PodShows.com services and how interesting i thought it was…then I went out and tried it. Needless to say, i was very NOT impressed by my findings.
As I was browsing their selection, something caught my eye and I decided to create and account and make the purchase. After creating my account and verifying it through email I add the “podcast” to my cart and started to check out only to find that I had to re-enter all of my information into a 3rd party site to purchase the “podcast”. Not a good start.
I finally got through putting all my info in AGAIN and was happy that I would finally be getting my new podcast subscription. But another let down was to follow. I logged in to my account on their website (where you find your feed, subscriptions, etc) and clicked on my new subscription only to find that this was NOT a “podcast”. They only let me have the file in a stream!!!
And as if that wasn’t enough, the stream was in WMA format only. Im on a Mac, and dont have Microsoft apps installed. This made me sad.
So today, Im $1 poorer and a little ticked at PodShows.com and their misrepresentation of their service. I thought that it was bad that they were only going to allow me to have 60% of each song, but to not even offer the file for download…disturbing.
I hope somebody else has a good experience with them. If you do, please let me know by emailing [email protected]
