Listen to Podcasts with Your FRITZ!Box
Whether it's comedy, news or history, there's never been a better time to dive in and explore the latest podcasts. If you're new to podcasts, you might not know that you can use your FRITZ!Box to listen to them. All you need is your FRITZ!Box and a playback device that supports UPnP technology. This could be a wireless speaker, an Android smartphone with the FRITZ!App Media installed or a FRITZ!Fon.
How does it work?
Before listening to your favorite podcast, you'll need to set up the FRITZ!Box Media Server.
Once you've done this, you can go to the "Podcast" tab in the Media Server and subscribe to your favorite podcasts. From the drop-down menu you can select a preconfigured podcast or add a new one. To do this select "Other podcast..." from the drop-down menu. Just enter the name and URL of the podcast you want to add. You can also choose how often the FRITZ!Box checks for new episodes. Then click "OK" to save any new podcasts to your list. Looking for something new? We suggest taking a look at websites such as www.listennotes.com for inspiration.
FRITZ!App Media and FRITZ!Fon: the dream team
You can listen to podcasts with devices or software that support UPnP technology. With the FRITZ!App Media or a FRITZ!Fon you have full control over your podcasts and you can also listen to the latest episodes on the device of your choice. One feature we particularly like is that the FRITZ!Fon can notify you about new episodes for your podcasts.
