    ...And unlike other pay sites, it’s also well edited. I’m only a week in, but this experienced journalist is very impressed with The Athletic.

    I have tried on both my computer and phone to cancel my subscription, but have had no luck. I try to follow all directions but get nowhere. Hopefully, the app people will take pity on me and unsubscribe me.
  • Great app

    It is much easier to read The Athletic articles in the mobile app than in a mobile browser😄
  • The Athletic Baltimore

    About time. Looking forward to reading old friends Dan & Jeff. Great pros who know their beats and will provide great insight.
  • Worth every penny

    By ArbuckleTV
    The biggest difference between the Athletic and free, as serving content (which I’ve written for) is the in-depth, analysis and length of content. It’s like they are writing for the avid fan who can’t read or listen to enough about their team. That’s me. The Athletic is awesome and the quality of writing and content is the biggest reason why.
  • Pete Sampson joining put me over the top
