Playing Podcasts

Podcasts are free, downloadable shows available at the iTunes Store. Podcasts are
organized by shows, episodes within shows, and chapters within episodes. If you stop
playing a podcast and return to it later, the podcast begins playing where you left off.

To play a podcast:


From the main menu, choose Podcasts, and then choose a show.

Shows appear in reverse chronological order so you can play the most recent one first.
You see a blue dot next to shows and episodes you haven’t played yet.


Choose an episode to play it.

For audio podcasts, the Now Playing screen displays the show, episode, and date
information, along with elapsed and remaining time. Press the Center button to bring
up the scrubber, star ratings, and other information about the podcast. For video
podcasts, you control the podcast as you do other videos.

If the podcast has chapters, you can press Next/Fast-forward or Previous/Rewind to skip
to the next chapter or to the beginning of the current chapter in the podcast.

If a podcast includes artwork, you also see a picture. Podcast artwork can change
during an episode.

For more information about podcasts, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Then search for “podcasts.”
