Ft.com subscription

Recommended Posts

Their standard digital subscription is £5.35 a week.

So, is it worth it? In sure a few here must be subscribers.

I just have their free subscription - don't really use that much. Most of what I see in the paper edition can be found online elsewhere in other media. All their 'real journalism costs money' stuff is true but I really do not see what the value add the FT gives me in exchange for them wanting cash from me.

Ive the full whack, paper and Lex.

I used to buy thd pdper ft on Sats. I also had the £50/year sub when it started, which allowed access to Lex.

Bumped to the new sub, 250/year.

Yes, its worth it. 

When iget anew tablet ill get the New Yorker on sub. Never managed to get that as paper outside of London.

Shame ft cant give you partial access to other, internation papers i.e. 100 articles from new york times etc.

I loved the early, sub free days of interner papers. I read hundu times,new york times etc.

I get a free subscription through work and do click on most days but I would never pay my own money for it.

They seem to have decided to throw off any veneer of impartiality this past year and gone into full propaganda mode for the neo-liberal new order.  [...] anything related to current events or politics has to be read with a grain of salt.

 

 

Doesn't this describe all newspapers, whether hard or e copy?  They all seem to have moved from presenting fact and good, solid investigative journalism to puff opinion/ propaganda pieces

 I fell for a cold calling FT salesman and accepted a 'free' 30 day subscription. I needed the online subscription, they didn't  give it to me. 

FT automatically converted it into a £750 per year paper only subscription at the end of 30 days, without telling me. FT simply withdrew the first quarters fee out of my bank account and refused to allow me to cancel.

As it violated the standing order guarantee, my bank refunded it and FT graciously decided to cancel the day after.

The news paper only subscription is pretty useless.. you can't search.

Private Eye summed it up pretty well a while ago:  It used to be "No FT, No Comment" now it's "No FT, No Problem."  I sometimes buy the weekend edition if I'm going to be stuck indoors with nothing to do.  It occasionally gives me investment ideas to research.
