I am having problems subscribing with the native podcast player.

I can add the url but the episodes aren't downloaded. I use downcast for all my podcasts and it works well.

Subject: [BCAB] Accessing RNIB newspapers on IOS, further problems

Hi all, following on from my emails this weekend regarding a friend trying to access the RNIB Newsagent Audio Downloads service on IOS, I would like to thank those who assisted with finding the RSS feed links to paste into the native podcasts app. We found a magazine which we selected the Rss link to, and we then went into the podcasts app and pasted the link where it had to be pasted and selected subscribe, expecting to be prompted to sign in. When we however selected subscribe, we were taken back to the edit screen, and not prompted to sign in. Can anyone shed some light on what is going on, any help is as always greatly appreciated.
