What does “3 Active Sermons/Episodes” mean for the “Audio Starter” plan?
Active (published) episodes are publically available for streaming and downloading at any time. Inactive (unpublished) episodes are still saved within your private PodPoint account, but they are not accessible publically. In order to offer the “Audio Starter” plan for free, we apply a limit of three active episodes at any given time. These episodes can be cycled out as many times as you wish. Most ministries using an “Audio Starter” account will unpublish the oldest episode whenever a new media file is ready for uploading. If you choose to upgrade your account in the future, you can easily offer your entire archive without uploading each file again.
