    Yeah, you'd be paying an extra $50 a year, and if those are the only two magazines you read, it doesn't make sense.

    For me, there are a ton of magazines that I buy 3 or 4 times a year, and pay newsstand prices for, just because there's an article I want to read. US, Vanity Fair, Oprah, Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone...and now, I can read them whenever I want. Worth it for me, probably not worth it for everyone. :)

    I like to get discount magazine subscriptions-- you can find a lot of good mags for $4 or $5 a year, but we only have one ipad...

    We had a three month free trial of NextIssue and, while it's useful, we still pay for the print edition of Entertainment Weekly (which gives us free access to the digital copy). Actually, I usually renew using MyCokeRewards, so effectively, it doesn't really cost anything.

    I picked up a sub to Motor Trend about a year ago and it was FOUR years for $13 and I regularly get a free year's sub to Motor Cyclist.

    So, apart from the wife's copie of O and Redbook, we find that it's not worth paying $15 a month for the full package. If things change, then sure, we'll go for it.

    Oh, and you can install the app and log in from more than one device, so we can both read EW at the same time if we want.

    Yeah, I am not sure I will stay with it. It was useful in that my EW sub has been up for a while and I may not renew. Getting the issue free was pretty good. I will see how much I read from it in the month and decide. Still a great find.

    (BTW, there is a $10 a month version with fewer magazines.)

    Man, I'm totally already behind! I was going to spend this week with my EW and my spreadsheet and my remote setting up season passes, and FOX went and already had 2 nights of shows without me!

    You ARE behind! I spent the weekend getting ready. Shows locked & loaded.:up:

    I also had to set up an entire new TiVo, my Roamio Pro. Had to recreate 75 SPs and about 50 WL. Then set up a MINI. Then take my Elite and turn it into my wife's TiVo. Which mainly entails removing all the Kathy Morgan Wishlists.:eek:

    get on it girl!

    So far I have seen 3 of the new shows

    Sleepy Hollow - I don't think i will be watching.

    Dads - 4 actors I like a lot in a very unfunny comedy show. I did not even make it through it.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine - On the fence about this one there were some good moments or maybe the bar was set so low by Dads that anything would look good in comparison.

    Tivos new shows category is working out well so far. Record the category and forget about it. No need to set up multiple season passes. Watch the shows as they pop up and decide which ones get an actual season pass.

    i'll catch it on friday - i watched back in the game, and can't believe i added the sp. i generally avoid sitcoms, but the pilot struck a note with me, so i'll give it a chance.

    james caan was almost unrecognizable, but great in the role, almost like a grumpy clint eastwood in his last three movies!
