Give more prizes and/or incentives to subscribers; it can be in a form of a physical one (t-shirt, mugs, etc.) or a virtual one (discount to software, vouchers for a online store), but tech related. Also it helps getting the felling that when subscribing to Neowin, you are subscribing to a site, not only helping covering the costs but getting a great service that pays off.

Also just saw the subscriptions available now: they are very similiar, having very small diferences; i think they should be more broad and it's the diferences that give them more value.

also a wacky sugestion: a 99 tier that, for every post that subscriber does an automated post is added saying "best intelligent post ever!" or "yes...yes i agree with this post!".

I'm a subscriber, have been for a few years but won't be renewing again, purely on the fact I don't get anything back, but there is nothing to get back in all honesty. I don't really use Neowin a great deal these days anyway.

Being a subscriber and getting a free tshirt is a good idea, but I wouldn't wear it, or I would but I'd still wear my shirts over the top.

I honestly think you should just keep it as it is.

Prehaps get rid of the different levels of subscriber, so it's just 1 level at ?15 a year?

How about the ability to disable the curse word filter? I don't mind seeing **** , **** , etc. IMO, this should be a non-subscriber option.

The original words don't actually get stored.

They get replaced by asterisks on the fly upon writing the entry to disk.

I've struggled with this for years. I really can't think of one reason for me to become a subscriber other than to help the site.

I'm afraid this won't be an option as Neowin is discontinuing blogs completely.

Personally I'd like the idea of adding my own personal custom background or skin as a Tier2, as a few other people have said, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest that others could or couldn't see it, and I've seen it done on other IPB based forums.

Thinking if we add Darkside on any future version of the site, to be a subscriber only feature.

If you add darkside, to the homepage/articles as well, I'll sub in a heart beat. I can't stand black text on white background..

I dislike the 10min idea.. I read most of the articles from the clicking the links in the IRC.. if I get a 'You need to wait 10min before you can view...' I probably won't bother returning to it.. Subs are supposed to be bonuses for people that pay, not a handycap for those that don't imho.

      Apple Music for Android appears to confirm the Apple One bundle
      by Jay Bonggolto

      A report surfaced last month claiming that Apple was planning to introduce a set of subscription bundle for its services with a tiered approach. The cheapest tier would reportedly include Apple Music and Apple TV+ while the more expensive one would combine Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and additional iCloud storage.

      Today, a new report appears to corroborate that claim. 9to5Google says a string of code it found in the latest beta version of Apple Music for Android contains mentions of Apple One, seemingly confirming its existence. Version 3.4.0 of the music app also reveals that the subscription service is internally codenamed “aristotle".

      The presence of the code string in the app also indicates that Apple Music will be offered as a part of Apple One. In addition, Apple mentioned that subscribers won't be charged for both subscriptions. However, you may not be allowed to manage or renew your Apple One subscription from the Apple Music app on Android.

      There's no mention of the bundle's pricing. Nonetheless, it is expected to debut at an Apple event on September 15, when the tech giant will unveil a new Apple Watch and iPad.

      Origin Access and EA Access priced at $0.99 until June 29
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      Later this week, EA is planning to unveil its upcoming games through an EA Play Live event, but for fans looking to enjoy the publisher's older wares, the company is offering discounts on its subscription services across all platforms.

      Currently, Origin Access Basic on PC along with EA Access on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have had their costs reduced from the usual $4.99 to $0.99. Note that the discount only applies to a single month of access, and at least on PC, it's unclear if only new users are eligible for the offer. Find the links to each service, below:

      Origin Access Basic PC - $0.99 EA Access Xbox One - $0.99 EA Access PlayStation 4 - $0.99 The console variants of the subscription service offer only EA-published games, the full list of which can be seen here. Meanwhile on PC, Origin Access Basic contains a total of over 250 games, bringing in a host of third-party titles in addition to EA's own. Origin Access games can be seen here.

      Other than the games, the subscriptions also offer a 10% discount on EA games (store-wide on Origin Access), as well as early trials for upcoming games from the publisher.

      The Origin Access and EA Access discount promotions will be running until June 29. A new variant of EA Access is also coming to Steam soon, and we might see a release date being announced during the EA Play Live digital event on June 18.

      EE pay monthly customers to get six months of BritBox for free after partnership deal
      by Paul Hill



      EE has announced that it's now the exclusive mobile partner for the streaming service BritBox. As part of the arrangement, EE customers that pay monthly for a phone or tablet with EE will receive a six-month subscription to the streaming service with inclusive mobile data.

      EE said it will launch the six-month subscription on March 13th for all EE pay monthly mobile and tablet customers, giving them access to shows like Top Gear, Downton Abbey, Happy Valley, and Gavin & Stacey. During the trial period, customers will be able to access BritBox content on other devices such as Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast. After the six-month period ends, customers can continue their subscription to BritBox for £5.99 per month, which can be paid through their EE bill.

      Commenting on the news, Will Harrison, Managing Director at BritBox, said:

      BritBox launched in the UK in November last year. It includes content from several UK channels including BBC and ITV and costs just £5.99 for HD streaming across multiple devices. It contains several exclusive shows but contains a lot more content that has expired from various UK-based catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer.

      Subscription variant of PaintShop Pro now available in Microsoft Store
      by Boyd Chan



      Corel PaintShop Pro has been one of the enduring photo and graphics editing tools for PC, having been originally launched by Jasc Software in 1992 until it was acquired in 2004. PSP has served as an alternative to one of its main competitors in the form of Adobe Photoshop and has included the ability to be extended through the use of Photoshop-compatible plugins.

      Now, PaintShop Pro has come to the Microsoft Store in its subscription variant and, for those who sign up, the first month will be available for free. Plus, if you change your mind during the course of the free month, you will be able to cancel at no charge.

      In terms of features, PaintShop Pro boasts the following:

      You can expect the software download to be roughly 720MB and, like other apps available via the Microsoft Store, you'll be able to install it on up to ten Windows 10 devices that are linked to your Microsoft account. You'll also get the benefit of having the software kept up to date for you automatically and contained

      Of course, if subscription software doesn't tick all the right boxes for you, particularly in terms of localized pricing, you can still buy the standalone version of PaintShop Pro 2020 here.

      Google teases new Play Pass subscription service
      by Paul Hill

      Google has taken to Twitter today to tease its upcoming Google Play Pass subscription service, simply stating that it’s “almost time” for its arrival. The service was revealed in screenshots last month and a spokesperson for the company did confirm that it was testing the service. Google Play Pass will be going up against Apple Arcade which was announced earlier this year.

      The screenshots released last month reveal that users will be able to get a 10-day trial of Google Play Pass before paying $4.99 per month. By subscribing, customers get access to hundreds of premium apps and games without ads, download fees, or in-app purchases. The service will likely be most ideal for mobile gamers who tend to buy in-game purchases.

      It’s unclear exactly when we will see Google Play Pass released but Google is due to announce the Pixel 4 soon so it could be released around the same time. It’ll be interesting to see whether Google can get its Android users to take out a Play Pass subscription or not. Those who tend to buy in-app purchases will probably be the easiest people to persuade to sign-up.
