Problem: You can’t subscribe to any Podcasts in iTunes music store because the the buttons are greyed out. An example is shown below:
Fix:This happens when the ‘Podcasts’ item is not enabled in the iTunes library. To enable it, follow these steps:
- Open the iTunes Preferences. To do this, either press ‘Ctrl+,’ (that’s the control key, and the comma key at the same time); or Go to ‘Edit’ in the top menu, and then ‘Preferences’.
- Select the ‘General’ tab, usually on the left most.
- Tick the ‘Podcasts’ item in the ‘Show:’ options list (highlighted below):
Once you say ‘Ok’ to the Preferences box, the ‘Podcasts’ item should appear in the top-left-hand side of the iTunes window. If you now view links to podcasts in the iTunes Store, they should be clickable.
