Acast is a podcasting app and web service that provides free, on-demand audio content, enhanced by additional rich media and links. Acast currently hosts 50% of commercial podcasts broadcast in the UK, including content from xfm, Naked Scientists, Spectator, ASOS, and The Guardian. The platform enables producers to host podcasts for free and monetise them via its ad-supported platform. Clean advert breaks can be inserted to ensure the flow of an episode is not disrupted. In 2014, just four months after launch, Acast was named Start-up of the Year by IDG magazine, Internetworld, and ‘Most innovative media service’ at leading mobile industry awards Mobilgalan.
