SITE NEWS: Important Message About FO Premium Subscriptions for 2017

If you purchased any of our premium subscriptions in recent months, you may have noticed a message that those subscriptions would not necessarily last a full year because of plans to reorganize our various premium products for 2017. Some subscriptions were listed as ending on July 1, 2017. Others were listed as ending on September 1, 2017.

Earlier this month, we did some polling of FO Premium subscribers and discovered that the majority of those subscribers actually wanted us to leave the premium products the way they are. There was more crossover between readers who use the weekly picks and readers who use the DVOA database than there was between readers using those features and the readers who subscribed to our new premium charting data in 2016.

As a result, premium products are going to be structured the same way in 2017 that they were structured in 2016. Standard Premium will still include the DVOA database, expanded player pages, weekly picks, and the fantasy answering service. Premium Charting Data and Weekly Fantasy Projections will still be separate products.

And so, because we aren't reorganizing the products, there is no need to articficially end subscriptions so that readers can subscribe to a new series of 2017 products. Therefore, premium subscriptions will now end in the following ways.

  • Standard FO Premium subscriptions are now back to a full year. No matter when you purchased your subscription, even if it was after September 1, 2016, you will have access for 365 days. Except...
  • If you purchased the FO Premium Late-Season Special at a reduced rate, your subscription will end this weekend if it has not ended already.
  • Subscriptions to 2016 Premium Charting Data and 2016 Weekly Fantasy Projections will end this weekend UNLESS you purchased these products after February 1, 2017 -- in other words, after the 2016 season was over. If you purchased Premium Charting Data after February 1, congratulations, your subscription has now been extended to one full year from the day you originally made your purchase.

If your subscriptions to FO premium products are ending this weekend, please be patient, because you will be able to subscribe for another year very soon. We are working on trying to program our store to allow for more complicated discounts. The goal is to give readers the ability to combine the three different premium subscriptions with FOA 2017 and the 2017 KUBIAK fantasy football projections and get discounts whenever they buy more than one of these products.

If you have any questions about your subscription or the premium plans for 2017, please e-mail us at info-at-footballoutsiders.com.

(UPDATE: We look to have new packages and products for 2017 up for sale by Monday, July 10.
