Yeah, the details are a bit light. I'd imagine the 14 day cancellation period would have to pass first..?

Just my opinion, but €81 is still a joke to subscribe to a newspaper online in this day and age. There is more quality free content out there than anyone could ever read.

Yeah, fair point if you're talking about news in general, and not the features. I detest iPads/iPhones, but still, I'm sure somebody here will see this deal as a great bargain for them.

I subscribed to the trial recently on my ipad mini and enjoy it though its so hard to keep up with the content every day. It's worth it alone for the sunday times paper as that's what 3 quid now? Do find myself reading the guardian aswell at times tho...

Seems like a handy way to spread the cost of an iPad out actually, I mean if you're in the market for one and on a relative budget.

So what's the weekly cost then? And is it the actual paper being delivered to your house?

You'll still owe them the full 18 month subscription.
