What do I do if I lost or forgot my subscription information?

I purchased a podcast subscription. Now what?
Note: If you’ve purchased an individual podcast episode download, please click here for instructions: Individual Podcast Episode Instructions
As soon as your premium podcast subscription purchase is complete you will receive an email from PayPal or 2Checkout acknowledging your subscription and payment, and you’ll receive a “Premium Podcast Info” email from FOX News Radio. The email from FOX News Radio will contain your “Private Podcast URL” (the link to your podcast) and instructions on how to add the Private Podcast URL to your iTunes or other podcast software.
Do I have to use iTunes to access the podcast?
Absolutely not! You can use any podcast downloading software. Podcast software is frequently referred to as a “Podcatcher”. We recommend Ziepod (www.ziepod.com) because it’s free and very good. There is a fairly exhaustive list on Wikipedia of the gamut of “Podcatcher” software out there, for PC’s, Macs, Linux, and mobile phones such as the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and others. See here: Wikipedia “Podcatcher” List.
Additionally, you can access your podcast directly via your web browser if you prefer to listen that way. Just click on your “Private Podcast URL” you receive with your FOX News Radio podcast info email (or copy the Private Podcast URL and paste it in your web browser’s address bar) and enter your podcast user name/password when prompted* (*see Windows 7 advisory at the top of this page), OR, go to your FOX News Radio Premium Account manager page at http://foxnewsradio.com/account and enter your podcast user name and password when prompted* (*see Windows 7 advisory at the top of this page).
I downloaded an individual podcast episode. Do I do anything differently?
Yes. If you want to use a podcatcher program like iTunes, you will need to “import” your downloaded file into the podcatcher program. You don’t subscribe in the program as you would with a monthly or yearly subscription. When you get your FOX News Radio “Order Information” email for your individual podcast purchase, you’ll see that it has a large icon labeled “DOWNLOAD” on it. Underneath the icon is a URL (link) to the podcast episode. Click on either of those to begin the download of your file. Make note of where on your computer the file is being saved to.
Once downloaded, you can either listen to the podcast “mp3” file on your computer with your default music player (such as Windows Media Player or Quicktime), OR, you can import (iTunes calls it “Add to the Library”) the file into a program like and then sync it to an mp3 player. Here’s a quick tutorial from youtube.com on how to use iTunes to “Add to the Library” any mp3 files (like an individual FOX News Radio podcast episode): How to add your individual FOX News Radio podcast into the iTunes Library.
Hey, my FOX News Talk radio podcast is supposed to be three hours! What gives?
We strip out the top and bottom of the hour newscasts, as well as the commercial breaks from each hour of your FOX News Talk radio (Kilmeade and Friends/John Gibson/Tom Sullivan/Fox Across America/Alan Colmes) podcast. That leaves about 37 minutes and 40 seconds of content time per hour. All but one of our FOX News Talk radio podcasts are three hour shows (Fox Across America is a two hour show), so that works out to about 1 hour and 53 minutes of show content per podcast.
Do I have to re-subscribe every month or every year?
Absolutely not. Our subscriptions auto-renew (as mentioned on the PayPal and 2Checkout payment page) on the anniversary date of the term you have paid for (month or year). Do not sign-up again unless you are purchasing a premium URL for someone else as a gift.
What happens when my credit card on file with PayPal expires?
PayPal will notify you when your credit card is about to expire. If you do not update your credit card on file, then PayPal will automatically cancel your subscription immediately as payment could not be processed. Make sure your spam settings allow emails from PayPal to enter your inbox. DO NOT REPLY TO ANY EMAILS WITH YOUR PAYPAL USERNAME OR PASSWORD.
What happens when my form of payment fails to renew my subscription on PayPal?
