Breaking: Apple adds Podcasts section to countries without an iTunes Music Store

I have just noticed that Apple finally added a “Podcasts” section in the Saudi Arabia iTunes Store. I would assume that with this Apple also added a Podcasts section for countries without an iTunes Music Store.

The increases the available sections to the Saudi Arabia iTunes Store to 3: App Store, Podcasts and iTunes U.

With that, you don’t need a US iTunes Store account to review podcasts or switch to the US iTunes Stores just to browse for Podcasts.

It appears that the iTunes App in iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) will finally work now instead of getting a “itunes store not supported in this country” error message.

Countries confirmed to have a new Podcast section: Egypt, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates.

  2. not sure what do you mean by “itunes store not supported in this country” ! This is old news… I have been downloading music for months now on my iPhone (US account of course) in KSA.

  3. I’ve just created a us account to use podcasts directly on my ipod touch. they have should added the podcast section long time ago .. anyway this is really nice .. i checked out the new saudi podcast section to find out what are the most downloaded podcasts so i might see any arabic interesting podcasts .. but i was really shocked (nah not really) to find out top podcast episodes are not that educational ..

  4. I have a question I hope you can help me with.

    I have a podcast on iTunes UK (MScast), but my podcast is still not showing in some countries (like Kuwait), is there a way to solve that problem?

  5. Thanks for taking the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If possible, as you acquire expertise, would you mind updating your blog with extra info? It is extremely helpful for me.

  6. Hi there, just wandered by. I have a site. Amazing the amount of information on the web. Wasn’t what I was looking for, but very nice site. Have a nice day.
