Ricky Gervais podcast - how much would I pay?

So the 12 episodes are over and as the world's most popular podcast Ricky, Steve and Karl have announced that they will be continuing - but as a paid subscription service through i-tunes.

I've really enjoyed listening to them - but will I be prepared to pay for access?

Can't find anywhere yet to see how they'll wan. A low amount 5p? 10p?

That's good value - isn't it? Or will they want you to subscribe to the next 12 for a higher fee?

I won't be rushing to sign up - I think I'll see how much it costs - I wonder what will happen to the stats?

We'll see...

UPDATE:: That's ridiculous - $1.95/episode - big mistake

Yeah, it's a funny thing, I've enjoyed the 12, and I was really impressed that there were only 12, the scarcity would make it a classic. I'm just not sure, even at only $1+, that I'll bother to subscribe. It's funny, because there are a lot of worse things I pay that much fro, I guess it's just the fact that I dont pay anything for podcasts, so that's just expensive. Plus, they already have ads...!

Maybe a bit like Fawlty Towers?

Yeh - I read somewhere else about the whole "advertising would be the way to go"... (while you still can? / i.e. ad agencies can convince clients it's a good idea!!)

I'm going to watch the stats!
