One of the great things I enjoy about working at Revision3 is the feedback we get from the audience. Be it our shows, the website or anything in general, our audience always has great feedback, both positive and negative. We spend a lot of time reviewing that feedback and try to utilize it when making decisions about what to work on.
Many of you have been enjoying the daily editions of Tekzilla, Internet Superstar, and the new daily videos of iFanboy and have been outspoken about the fact that the daily episodes were included in the feed for the show. Some of you love it, getting Patrick Norton and the Tekzilla fix on a daily basis is exactly what you want. While others of you hated it, that you didn’t like having to download every episode of Lil’ Internet Superstar, just to get to the big Internet Superstar show. Believe it or not, we got some very vocal feedback from both sides of the topic.
So after a lot of work and a few heated meetings at Revision3 HQ, we’ve rolled out our updated solution for everyone to be able to get the shows they want, how they want them. Now when you’re on the page for a show, like Tekzilla, click on “Subscription Options” and you’ll see we’ve created individual feeds for the following:
- Combined Feeds – get both daily episodes and weekly episodes in one feed
- Daily Feeds – if you would like to subscribe to daily episodes separately
- Weekly Feeds – If you would like just the longer/weekly show
So now, you can pick the kind of feed you’d like and have the shows delivered when and how you prefer! If you’d like to change your subscription preference, you’ll just have to unsubscribe from your current RSS feed and re-subscribe with one of the feeds available on the site.
We’ve also made it easier to distinguish the daily episodes from the weekly episodes as we’ve added the daily episodes to the previous episodes listings for each show. We’ve also enabled filtering when browsing the previous episodes, so you can find the episodes you want.
Now this change only affects our shows with daily episodes, so other shows like Diggnation and popSiren, nothing changes for them, just continue watching and enjoying as you have.
We hope you enjoy this simple, yet impactful (so we think) change to our feeds and please keep the feedback coming. Comment here or in the forums and feel free to email us at support AT revision3 DOT com.
