Audible begins RSS delivery of the periodic audio content
Posted on 24-Jun-2005 22:37 | Tags Filed under: News



Audible, Inc. is making its selection of periodic audio content available for delivery to its customers via secure Really Simple Syndication (RSS). Customers can schedule automatic delivery of their periodic programming to their computers and to any one of more than 135 AudibleReady handheld devices.

Initially available only to Audible customers and content partners, this is the first in a series of Audible tools to be introduced this year that are intended to support the publishing of podcasts in an environment that delivers maximum value to content creators and the best user experience to listeners.

Audible is a leading online service that enables customers to download digital audiobooks, comedy, drama, radio programs, and audio editions of newspapers and magazines for playback on the Apple iPod or any AudibleReady handheld MP3 players. Audible customers can still receive their periodic programs through Audible's current delivery methods, but now have the additional option to use personal Audible RSS feeds for up-to-date delivery of their Audible content simply by installing software that supports the delivery of podcasts, such as iPodder, Doppler, NewsGator Online, FeedDemon or NetNewsWire.

"There are three companies that have the potential to be huge in podcasting and in creating this new medium," said Adam Curry, creator of iPodder and host of Daily Source Code. "Apple, Microsoft and definitely Audible."

The periodic content distributed by Audible today includes world-class programming such as: BBC News Hour, Car Talk, Charlie Rose, C-SPAN, Fast Company, Forbes Magazine, Fresh Air, JazzTimes, Harvard Business Review, Latino USA, Marketplace, MSNBC, News from Lake Wobegon, Scientific American, Science News, Technology Review, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The World, This American Life, and To the Best of Our Knowledge.
