Podcasts not available on Deezer


Where can I find the podcasts?
They seemed to have disappeared from my menu choices.
Only items I see from beyond music are 'football' and 'kids'.
Tried typing 'podcast' and get nothing.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

It isn't possible to add podcasts @Stepan Trnka unless you're the owner. We're working hard on our podcasts section at the moment, so you should expect a big update soon 😉

Hi there, just checked and podcasts are not available in your country. Were you able to see them before and if so, when did they disappear? have you changed your account country recently?
Hello Anja,
Thanks for your message.
This Summer I was listening to all of the podcasts that I enjoy, Tim Ferris, Joe Rogan ect.
They have mysteriously disappeared and I am not sure why.

I recently upgraded to a family plan however other than that nothing else should have changed.

This is kind of a deal breaker for me to continue with Deezer - seems strange that every other music service provides these but Deezer does not? Does not make sense.

Thanks;
Warren

I completely understand your frustration and our team is constantly working on more countries to support our podcasts, but as of now they just don't work in Canada and that has nothing to do with the type or subscription you have. I will definitely pass your feedback on and hope that we'll have news in the near future 🙂

I can’t see any podcasts too. Does it mean, I can only add deezer podcasts (which aren’t available in the Czech republic? It’s not possible to add any podcast from the web?

Hey @Aly Naseer 

I believe you're in Pakistan - according to your account. No plans to expand podcasts there yet, but some of them should already be available worldwide. If there's an update about this, we'll let you know :thumbsup_tone2:

What about plans to expand podcast to Czechia?

Hey @jirikovoego 

We haven't got more updates at the moment, and to manage your expectations - this should be something discussed from the beginning of next year :thumbsup_tone2:

Hi there @jirikovoego 

Yes, we managed to expand our podcast rights to UAE, Saudi Aradia, Egypt and Turkey, this month.

We're still working towards more countries, but we'll have to see what happens in the next few months - thank you for your support so far :thumbsup_tone2:

Hi @Rudi ,

Thanks for reaching out, it's not every day we've got the opportunity to speak with a familiar Tuga :wink:

There isn't a date for Portugal yet, we're constantly working to expand the Shows tab to more countries - we've got to work on local content and rights, among other things - and these take time.

In the meantime, try a Google search for the podcast you're looking for and Deezer - if the podcast is available worldwide, you might be able to play it via desktop PC/Mac :v_tone2:

Hi @Rudi 

Do you perhaps know if the Podcast feature will become available in South Africa anytime soon?

Thanks,

Hey @Engela.Groenewald.Wessels 

Thanks for asking.

We haven't had any reports about an expansion to South Africa yet, but we know there's great interest. We're constantly looking to expand our Shows tab, so stay tuned to our community and we hope to add Podcasts to your country one day :v_tone2:

Podcasts launched in three territories recently and still nothing for Central America & The Caribbean. Is there even any intention to bring podcasts to these regions at all? I've been using Deezer for years yet nothing has changed with this for my territory.

Sorry to hear that @svnh and thank you for your feedback!

We'd like to be in more and more countries, but we need to establish quality local content as well - and that process takes time in each country, among other things. I'll be passing your comments to the relevant teams here at Deezer so that hopefully your region is the next one :v_tone2:

Hello @Kostia.Konkov, we’re looking into this at the moment, aiming to add more countries to the list. Keep an eye on this article, it’ll be updated once we know which new countries will welcome the podcasts feature.

Have a nice day

@Kevin Deezer 
Thanks for the quick reply. I keep my eyes open on the article and wait patiently.
Have a nice day you too.

 

Hi @Kevin Deezer,

It would be great to see the Podcasts feature in Russia!

I understand it’s a lot of work to add podcasts in Russian, but is it possible to make at least shows in English available for us?

Hello @May B, we’d love for it to be this simple, but there’s always the matter of legal rights to be discussed, and in which countries we’re authorized to stream them. But we’ll get there!

@Kevin Deezer, thanks for the reply and for the great service!

It's not understandable why you are delaying adding podcast function in most of the countries. It's years I'm waiting for it, cause your competitors did it so many time ago. You are really running out of time (as I wrote more than an year ago), your competitors are using it to grow and grow.

 

I try to promote Deezer, but in a pair of occasions I was asked if Deezer has podcast.

Hi there @Cioffy 

Thank you for your support and for promoting Deezer. We're not delaying at all. We've made such progress with expanding Podcasts and improving our Shows tab in such a short period of time. We've reached the Middle East, Turkey, recently and there's more to come. And it's thanks to comments like yours that we can drive this forward :thumbsup_tone2:
