Migrating podcast and iTunes feed

I just migrated my site. I was already self hosting my podcast. Now with PodLove the feed URL has changed.

I don’t want to lose subscribers. So I created a 301 redirect on my new site. I pointed the feed URL in iTunes to the URL generated by Podlove.

I checked in a podcast app and it worked. I see the new feed and I wasn’t unsubscribed.

Is there anything else I should do? Do I have to keep that redirect on forever?

Keep it as long as you can. iTunes will follow the permanent redirect after a while (days/weeks) and does not require the redirect any more after that. Some other clients, in our experients, don’t follow the rules that closely.

Thank you. So after some weeks I can set the new rss URL in iTunes?
