Early this year I paid £39.99 pa for the digital edition.  I'm now asked for £60, but without the player (I know that was available to all, but I have no idea why and I needed the magazine to see what else was on the release).  The alternatives are not as good, and may not survive either (qobuz is shaky and I can't use itunes).  

 

I can get a paper copy, printed and delivered to my door for £60.  I see I may even be able to get a paper edition cheaper through other suppliers.   Since the electronic links in the digital edition are of no use to me (no itunes), what have I got to lose?  The spotify playlist is free, available to all, with its good points and bad points, so I could still use that.  I guess access to the archive is an issue (but not the digital reviews, which would cost even more), but surely the archive has already been produced and I can't see that maintenance should cost much.

 

These numbers don't add up to me.  Is there some logic to this pricing that evades me and would persuade me to accept a 50% price hike for the digital edition in one year with no additional benefit and some loss of service?  Should I go for paper from another supplier, which must cost you a lot to produce and deliver?
