FT's "Ryanair" subscription level
on March 2, 2017
For $15/month, it's a great deal, (especially since the digital subscription at ft.com is current about $40/month) but it comes with two drawbacks:
* The Amazon Kindle subscription does not qualify the user for web-based content. You do not get a valid login for ft.com with this subscription, so you can't subscribe to daily emails from the brilliant John Authers, etc.
* The Kindle version is very stripped-down, it's basically text-only. Charts, graphs and pictures are not generally available or useful if provided.
The mitigating factor is that a robust, text-only version downloads very quickly and reliably, more so than other subscriptions like the WSJ. Nothing like settling into a flight and finding that the content didn't download, that won't happen with the FT.
