Discover subscriptions and channels
When listeners purchase a subscription to a show, they automatically follow the show and the page is updated with a Subscriber Edition tag so they know they have access to the premium experience. Listeners can discover channels for their favorite podcasts from every show page and through search, explore recommendations on the Listen Now and Browse tabs, and share channels using Messages, Mail, and other apps. As listeners subscribe to the channels, the Listen Now tab expands with new rows that provide easy access to all content included in the channel and with their subscription. Listeners who subscribe to two or more channels will see a My Channels row in the Listen Now tab, where they can browse and follow all of the offered shows.
