Wondery joined the cavalcade of podcast companies partnering with Apple for their new Apple Podcast Subscriptions service launching later this month. Wondery already has a subscription service called Wondery+ priced at $4.99 a month and that price will remain consistent for Apple as well.
Jen Sargent, Wondery CEO commented to the Hollywood Reporter:
“We’re excited to join with Apple on the next chapter of podcasting and are encouraged by the opportunities this subscription offering opens up for the podcast industry as a whole,” said Jen Sargent, Wondery CEO. “Through this opportunity, we’ll be offering our listeners on Apple Podcasts easy access to Wondery+ while bringing them the same immersive listening experience they’ve grown to know and love.”
Wondery was purchased by Amazon in a deal announced in December of last year and this move shows that Amazon wants to keep their new acquisition in as many money-making opportunities as possible.
