The Joe Rogan Experience-Spotify move has finalized…

As of December 1, 2020, the final stipulation of Joe Rogan‘s $100,000,000 deal goes into effect. From now on, only clips / highlights of new episodes will be uploaded to the “PowerfulJRE” channel: Watchers and listeners of The Joe Rogan Experience must now sign up for Spotify in order to access the full episodes.

“Literally millions of people that could access the JRE until yesterday simply won’t be able to listen to Joe Rogan anymore because Spotify isn’t available everywhere”

With this platform move, many outspoken (former) fans are expressing their dislike for the Spotify move, and the reasons why they will not or can not continue to watch. Check out some comments from this Reddit thread:

I like watching the podcast from my tv. Now with the Spotify app all I get is audio through my tv. How do I get the video back??

I’m in Ukraine, downloaded Spotify and no podcasts are available. I’ve spent hours trying to figure out the app and it literally has NO Podcast options or even says it anywhere. I even tried a VPN. I’m pissed.

“Yeah, dude. Sucks. I used to listen to it when I was living in Spain. Now Im in Kyiv and its unfair. Im a paid customer.”

Yes it is. Freezes frequently and won’t restart. Especially if you lose signal for a second. When the ads play at the start often freezes the stream too. Listening to it while on mobile data is spotty at best. It doesn’t work nearly as well as their music streaming service.

Afaik you cant turn the video off either, like its tethered so you cant just get the audio anymore and have it be a fraction of the burden to stream.

Hopefully they work it out but seems like they’re fine with allowing their employees to behave like 5 year olds and sabotage joe as much as possible.
