mkjellman ,

great content

first let’s review the app and service itself:
-responsive, thoughtfully designed, full of every feature you’d want, quality original content, and fast

last: let’s review the business model:
-i’m not sure i’m willing to pay *every month* for what they are asking. if the team finds a way to make the cost more reasonable i can see myself being a long term subscriber.

Great Content Too Expensive

I love the content of British Pathé, but $7.99 is way too expensive for historical content. I'd do $8 for a year, but no way almost $100!
