Because it isn't available for free.

Yep. I have a few apps for newspapers and the Zinio app which I use in conjunction with my library membership gives an even further spread of papers and magazines.

Oh yes it is. I hope you didn't pay before you realised that it was available for free.

I didn't sub to it but you don't have unlimited access like the subbed version from what I gather.

you are limited to 15 articles per week with the free app and 10 articles on your PC which is probably enough for a lot of people.

You are factually incorrect. Access to more than 15 articles requires payment. Access to epaper also requires payment.

Also limited access has been applied to independent.ie (and some U.K. Papers)

Ah yes - but the Indo is pure muck. Thanks for the BA OP - signed up yesterday. There's an ePaper app for iPhone in case anyone likes their news the older fashioned way...

If you open each article in a private tab it's unlimited.

There could be a limit but I found that if you open an article directly from google then it will always display. But good to have someone support these enterprises.

€8 for 12 months(0.15 cent per week) doesn't even seem the hassle of workarounds.

Thanks OP.. Bought

No, private browsing/incognito mode, just click settings and you'll see it there somewhere though Im surprised if thats all it takes to get by them counting how many articles you've viewed.

I thought it was 8 per month?

Your subscription will be billed €8 per month for the first 12 months and €16 per month thereafter

To be clear, the half price offer seems to be €8 per month for 12 months (i.e. 96 euro in total) rather than €8 for the full 12 months.

Still puzzled as to why people on this thread consider paying €96 for something that is available free to be a "bargain" And saying stuff like "But it's not unlimited if I don't pay €96 " (when it kinda is and they would never use the theoretical limit anyway)
To be frank I think they're suckers.
