It's not cheap, $29.99/year. How does that compare to the paper version?

I think I'll pass at $30 a year! It's free online.

I agree it's free online. Too expensive.

If I can select a program and if it creates Outlook reminders. Then it is cool. But even then $30 is expensive.

Wow, I'm a little surprised that they would charge for this. If you already have a subscription, then it should be free. And if you don't it shouldn't cost you $30 a year just to look up TV shows. :roll:

Everyone's business plan must start with some version of "it only amounts to a few bucks a month". No one seems to understand that is death by a thousand cuts to the consumer. Not even some consumers I guess.
