    I agree. I get enough news from the regular non subscription.

    I was hoping it would be different. Like for sports I like the athletic and espn insider. Get something to combine these type of things and you’re on to something

    There are a good deal of people shying away from news and magazine publications altogether partly due to a heavy bias.

    I believe you can find news in whatever bias you want though.

    True. But I also think Apple tried too much too fast. TV +, Arcade, and News +. And users like me were going, "Uh Huh. Sure. Yeah, right."

    Yeah, and like the others, they are following a trend.

    Unlike streaming tv and movies, gathering and reading news is perceived by people as something that should be free. Kudos to the first company that can convince millions if not billions people to do otherwise.

    People that do subscribe to paid news outlets, are people that go for quality over quantity. And those people are getting more scarce every day.

    So no wonder that News+ is struggling.

    News is free,in fact you can’t avoid it ! the attempt to monetise it is an attempt to find out just how stupid people are.

    Just what kind of news are you talking about? Because, yes, news are free, but quality news are not. And in these days of Trumps, Bolsonaros and Johnsons, I'm really not interested in fake and dubious news.

    But, yes, I don't pay for Apple News either, though I have some subscriptions of some newspapers I trust.

    It doesn’t sound like the convincing is going very well.
    Quality can be found without having to pay a ransom.
