    International podcast support should have been a part of GDR2 but it seems I do not have the support yet.

    I live in France so maybe that just isn't a supported country, although it is almost always one of the first international markets supported by Microsoft.

    How does it normally work? Is there a podcast store? Is it in the music store?

    Does anyone abroad have the option now, if so from what country are you?

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Never understand the podcast culture. But if you really want podcast purchase, you may switch your phone's country location to US, then the podcast option will appear in the store app. Hopes this helps.

    Change Phone Region to United States via settings>language+region.

    And, shouldn't the Podcast option be available under Music+Video?

    the music+video only shows what you had, it doesnt even give you the link to purchase, which I assumed this is what OP wants.

    thanks but that doesn't work for me. Probably because my "store region" is not dependent on my phone region settings.

    guess you had the rom installed that completely wipe the function off.

    I have an unlocked unbranded French ROM, no really it shouldn't be there if it does indeed exist

    It is possible to get "static" podcast on a non-US device, however you will most likely need to reset as the phone checks the region of the device and of the Microsoft Account.
    This is what I did for static podcast support on an AU device with an AU MS account:

    1 - reset device and set region to United States, don't login to your MS account
    2 - connect to WIFI, enter the store and subscribe to channels you want
    3 - change region and login to your MS account. Podcasts will no longer be available from the store but those already subscribed are accessible via Xbox Music.

    Ridiculous to have to do this but it works.
