    I considered purchasing the Athletic since it launched, and couldn’t be happier that I finally took the plunge. Fantastic local and national sports coverage. Totally worth the buy!

    Totally worth it! You’ll fully appreciate uninterrupted reading with this site free of pop-up ads and videos. Even navigating the website without the visual of advertising is greatly appeasing.
  • Quality

    By All fantasy fans
    This is worth the pay wall. You won’t find any better coverage than the Athletic
  • I love this app

    By Williaad
    I never write reviews, but I’ve had this for 3 days and it’s already one of my favorite apps. If you’re on the fence, get it. It’s worth it.
  • Incredible app & company, but....

    By B0B16
    Let me start by saying that I absolutely love The Athletic- there is no other place to get this incredible and interesting content. The only wish I have (and it’s not a complaint, nor has it affected the rating) is the ability to mark articles as read across iOS devices. For example, I read through a ton of articles today on my phone, but when I go to look for more stuff to read on my iPad, all of the articles are still listed as unread. Again, this is not at all a negative thing, it just would be a nice touch to an already tremendous platform.
  • Great Writing

    By dnabrice81
    Love the regional-focused coverage and in-depth analysis they provide. (Especially for the Eagles.)
  • Worth the purchase

    By RlFrey
    Getting a subscription to the Athletic is worth the money, especially if you are a baseball fan. So many great writers (Eno Sarris, Ken Rosenthal, to name a few). The app is well-constructed, allowing you to read stories that will pique the most interest from you.
  • Lots of high quality NFL writing

    By CLN.NYC
    Would like to be able to follow NFL divisions (not just by team or city).
  • Love The Athletic
