As other users have indicated - after paying for a subscription to their online publication I am unable to view any of the content other than their home page. I cannot read any of the articles. Instead, when clicking on an article it asks me to subscribe before I can view the article. After two weeks of sending multiple email inquiries I have yet to receive any sort of response from the company. There is no phone number to be found and they only provide one email address for all inquiries. Obviously they do not monitor that email account. They are fraudulent for taking my money (my payment was processed) and not delivering the services which they advertised. I will be filing a dispute with my credit card. I wish I heeded the advise of other users who provided a 1 star rating.
I want to be able to choose podcasts in my car without having to look down at my phone. Also, I want there to be a way to clear out old episodes that I might have skipped, so I only see the most recent episode of a podcast available. Otherwise, best sports journalism app around.
I hav been subscribed for a decent while now and find it worth every penny. I’m a fan not only of my native Atlanta teams, but sports in general. Great reads for most teams across most sports. The only major thing that I would like to see as an improvement is the favoriting/following system. It would be nice to be able to sort the list of teams you follow. For example, I am a fan of my local Atlanta teams as well as my college, but I follow dozens of teams across several sports. The ability to say, organize the list to have my specific teams at the top would be brilliant. Either way, great app full of great reads and podcasts. I highly recommend for real sports fans.
This site/app delivers fresh news different than all of the other generic sites that rip each other off with different headlines. Great articles for the teams I actually like not just a national regional slant! Exclusive pods again with a different view than a lot of the others and articles that are in depth and geared to what I like whether it be fantasy football or Chicago cubs baseball to Michigan football. Easily best subscription out there!
I have had a SI subscription since 1964. I was an early subscriber to Baseball Weekly. The Athletic blows them away with content variety, access and information. It is my go-to source for Fantasy information in baseball and football which means I have less paper in the house and more information. Now, if you can find a way to entice Tony Barnhart to bring his SEC insights into the magazine it will rise to a new high level.
My deceased husband subscribed to the Athletic. It renewed and I went through all steps to cancel. I did receive an email stating it was canceled but no refund. I have sent 4 emails the last 2 weeks with no response from customer service. I have filed a complaint with the better business bureau and my credit card company.
And pay JR more Seriously The St. Louis Blues WON the CUP So give JR a big bonus Do it right Thank you ( Then let us know how it goes )
I appreciate the insights & depth most of the articles display. Information not readily available in the television media. Yes, you have to read but that’s the whole point I subscribe to The Athletic. Keep up the good work,
I love their coverage. But it’s ridiculous they only put most podcasts on their own site. And, their pod player is lousy, awkward, glitchy, and misses important features.
Full of perceptive, intelligent articles both of technical analysis and the human side of world football and other sports.
