Podcast Network Finyal Media Launches New Subscription Service Finyal+

The subscription gives listeners access to the entire catalogue of Finyal Media podcasts.

Dubai-based Finyal Media, a podcasting network for Middle Eastern storytelling podcasts, has launched its subscription service, Finyal+, on the new Apple Podcast Subscriptions platform. The service is offering subscribers exclusive and early access to Finyal’s entire media catalogue, the relief of uninterrupted ad-free listening, and making full seasons available upfront to feed listeners’ binging habits.

Leila Hamadeh, Co-Founder and CEO of Finyal Media, said: “We’re delighted to launch the new Finyal+ channel with Apple Podcasts Subscriptions and look forward to our podcast fans having the opportunity to enhance their listening experience with us. We know our listeners love to binge our shows and we continue to receive messages from fans asking when the next episode is coming out.”

“With that in mind,” she explained, “we decided to create Finyal+ to give our listeners the opportunity to gain early access to a full season of content in one go, so that they can listen at their leisure, early and uninterrupted. Rather than taking away any of our content from existing platforms, we want to give our listeners the choice as to what kind of listening experience they want from their podcasts.”

The current catalogue of shows includes seven of their most popular programmes: 1001 Nights, Juha, Sindbad, The Basement, Alsilah, The 40 Thieves, and Ismi. Subscribers can also expect a variety of new shows on the channel including new sci-fi series ‘The Code’.
