FAQ’s

WHAT IS A PODCAST?

Podcasting
lets you automatically receive the latest fans radio show from your chosen team
as soon as it’s available. You need to “subscribe”
to regularly receive a podcast, rather like you might subscribe to a magazine
and get it delivered each week. An important difference is that all of our
podcasts are completely FREE, and you can stop receiving the files at any time.

In order to sign up for a podcast you need an internet connection and some
podcast software (i-tunes is the most popular) which is available free of
charge. This software can checks for new shows every day and automatically
downloads them for you.

WHAT DOES IT COST?

ABSOLUTELY
NOTHING, our podcasts are all FREE!

DO I HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE?

You DO NOT need to subscribe!


1.
Listen
Direct from your computer

Go to the Your-Club Page from the TEAM drop-down menu on the
navigation bar and press Play to listen directly from your PC.


2.
Download
it onto your machine.

Go to the podcast page and there is a button that says download
mp3 file.

DO I NEED TO HAVE AN IPOD OR MP3

PLAYER TO LISTEN TO, OR SUBSCRIBE TO THE PODCASTS?

NOPE!

Anyone with a computer connected to the internet can download and listen to MP3
files. You will need a media player on your computer (many PCs come with
Windows Media Player, for example), and you’ll also need speakers or
headphones.

The advantage of transferring the podcasts onto an i-pod/mp3 is that you can
then listen to them on the move, on your way to work, whilst walking or at the
gym.

HOW DO I SUBSCRIBE TO A PODCAST?

You will
need an internet connection; and a piece of podcast software or an RSS
feed reader (see Related Links).

How you subscribe varies depending on which software you choose.

Popular options are i-Tunes, Juice and Doppler.

You can also subscribe using a web-based “feed reader” like My Yahoo or Google Reader. These work in a similar way to the podcast software
but are online rather than application-based and you need to have an account – these
are also free, easy to set-up and all you need is an email address.

To subscribe:

1. Find the feed for any of our podcasts by clicking on the RSS box found
on each team page.

The feed will start with a URL

“http://feeds.footballfancast.com/ffc-TEAM PODCAST NAME

The name of the podcast is the part which changes depending
on the podcast you want to subscribe to.

2. Copy this feed address (the URL) and paste it into your software (or
online reader). The feed is where the software will go to each time it wants to
check for a new episode.

3. How you do this will depend on your software, but you should look out for
buttons or links that say “Add” or “Subscribe”. The Team Page already has a quick links for
i-tunes, yahoo and google reader

HOW DO I UNSUBSCRIBE FROM A

PODCAST?

Unsubscribing
from a podcast will depend on the software or feed reader that you are using:

Select the undesired podcast (feed), in the software or feed reader that you
are using.

Next, look for commands or buttons with “unsubscribe”,
“delete”, “remove”, “remove selected feed” or
similar sounding text and carry out the action.

Sometimes simply selecting the feed and hitting the delete key may do the
trick.
