    Look on the bright side - over 60 million people don’t.

    Very interesting. I wish them every success. Hopefully, they remain true to their core beliefs.

    However, this bit confused me:
    If it's ad-free and the full subscription price (which hardly anyone pays) is $60 per year, how are they pulling in an average of $64 per subscriber?

    At a guess - maybe the promotional rates were for on UK subscribers as it has been available in the US for a while, I believe. The reason being I’ve seen people post about how good their MLB coverage has been

    Ah yes, of course. It was a stupid question really as I completely glossed over the monthly rate!

    I cancelled after 2 or 3 weeks into the trial. When asked for a reason I said that even after such a short time it had become very very clear it was like all the other titles & just a PR machine for the rags & dippers. Even the odd article about City was dull as ditchwater merely restating the bleedin obvious.

    Shame really.
