Anyone get home delivery of the Star Telegram
We have had one for like 30+ years
This Friday my husband got the renewal notice and it was over $900
Last year it was about 220 or so...
likely going to have to cancel--

I understand the cost of producing a daily paper is just about prohibitive today but there is no content in the paper to justify the increase---
And I don't think the paper offers an on-line/e-delivery option w/o the home delivery
ADDED--there is an e-delivery $20 a year -- so that's likely what he will do
The Dallas Morning News is $3 a week for e-delivery

Anyone else who stopped home delivery because of the cost increase?

I switched to the iPad version a couple of years ago. The print edition is just outrageously expensive!

I quit paying for the print addition about 8 years ago and my carrier continued throwing me a paper for about 4 years because she didn't understand the word "no". I'm assuming it was out of some kind of hope that I would eventually pay.

There's an online only option for $99 a year or $9.99 per month. There's too many work arounds for the pay wall to pay for it in my opinion. Using links to stories posted to social media or running copying/pasting article titles into a Google news search gets around the pay wall.

I wonder if the $900 per year was a mistake in printing? The Star Telegram website shows 7-day a week home delivery as being $100.99 for 26 weeks:

I get the Kindle edition. I do not recall what I pay. Adequate, I guess.

We paid around 100$/quarter, delivery aggravation and small print auto renewal included. Call and ask for a Christmas special.

I just wish they would stop throwing the weekly advertiser newspaper in my development. I have called them over and over to STOP littering on my property.

Neighbors are too darn lazy to pick it up, toss it in the trash, so eventually most of the papers, after been run over by cars in and out of their driveways, wind up on my corner lot yard. I've taken to just walking up and down the streets bordering my lot and collecting them.

Neighbors are just lazy. Makes you wonder.

How they can have the right to litter is beyond me.
