Q: What is SModCost?
A: SModCost is a monthly membership program, run by SModCo, which provides access to premium podcasts without pre-recorded ads, exclusive video content like Hollywood Babble-On, early access to tickets and any other benefits we might cook up in the future.
Q: What does SModCost cost?
A: SModCost costs $10 per month (billed automatically) or $80 per year.
Q: Is there a SModCost membership card?
A: Nope. When you purchase your membership, instead of choosing a name and password, you'll simply be asked to sign-in to a popular web service like Google, Yahoo!, AOL, MSN, Twitter or Facebook. Your credentials for that service will become your SModCost credentials too... which is good if you tend to get blazed and forget shit. Accessing SModCost members only offers or areas of the site will be easy -- if you're logged in, you'll sail right in; if you're not a couple quick clicks to your service of choice will grant you access. Don't worry, we never get to see the credentials you use, so your data stays completely private to you.
Q: Will SModCost be available on iTunes, Google Play, (insert other service /device here)?
A: Nope. SModCost content and special offers will only be available on and through smodcast.com and other SModCo websites. It's our shit, and our shit only. Content will play on the site and podcasts are available for you to download and own. Once downloaded, you'll play them back in your media player of choice (like iTunes).
Q: Will SModCost be totally, 100 percent AD-Free?
A: Not entirely. Podcasts won't ever have pre-recorded ads, but we can't promise that a live-read ad won't occasionally sneak in. We'll do our best.
Q: Can I purchase SModCost as gift for a friend?
A: Sadly, no. Because we don't store your private data, we can only sell memberships to the person who will use them.
Q: I signed up but for SModCost but it says I don't have access?
A: When you first sign-up you'll be sent an email with a link to verify your email account. Once you've completed that verification, and your membership has been paid for, you should have access.
Q: What is BabbleVision?
A: BabbleVision is an exclusive feature of SModCost that brings you the experience of seeing Hollywood Babble-On without having to actually go out. Live shows of Hollywood Babble-On are recorded, edited, and posted to BabbleVision as close as we can get to the same time the free podcast drops.
Q: Will BabbleVision be available on iTunes, Google Play, (insert other service / device here)?
Q: Who do I contact with a customer support issue?
A: Please go here, see the FAQ, and if needed, submit a request for help by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
