  5. Tap the View Apple ID button.
  6. Enter your Apple password (this may be different to your LBC Podcasts password) and tap OK.

I believe I have a subscription but I cannot download podcasts

Log in to the LBC Podcasts app. Tap on the Menu button in the top left-hand corner and click on “My Account” in the top bar. This will tell you whether you have an active subscription.

If you haven’t cancelled the repeat agreement, but your subscription has expired, it is possible the card you used when you created the account has expired. See above for how to update your credit card settings.

Make sure you are connected to a wifi network before you download a podcast as this will increase download speeds.

If your subscription is active, but you still can’t download podcasts, please email podcast@lbc.co.uk.

How big are the podcast files I am downloading?

A three-hour radio show (around a 2hr 15m podcast) will be around 56MB. If you are downloading the podcasts over 3G/4G, data charges may apply. You can select to only download over wifi in the settings menu.
