  • Horrible.

    By JPS1960
    Can’t get them to return an email message as I cannot get gift certificate to work. What a ripoff. Beware.
  • Great, but needs in-game updates

    By Jeem D
    I’ve been very pleased with The Athletic since purchasing my subscription and the app as a whole is great and enhances its value. However, the only thing keeping it from being my sole sports app is the lack of in-game updates. It would be nice if I could get a notification every time there is a score or at certain stages of the game as I have been able to do with the Espn, cbs sports, and league-specific apps.
  • Great writers, terrible business practice

    By PJuebebdjaoapx
    Charged my account 65 bucks when was told I’d have $1 for 90 days. Thankfully Apple refunded the money. You’re weak, Athletic!

    Great writers. Great articles/content. All around great experience. Highly recommend to all my fellow sports junkies.
  • Great stories

    By Scrote12
    These are the stories that everyone wants to read about. Who doesn’t love rankings from powerful writers and ex executives. Continue the great work and a matter of time before every sports fan is a member.

    Very succinct but informative. Looks like it’s going to be a fun championship year. GO DODGERS!!!
  • The Athletic is Great

    By Jaylyn D.
    The Athletic does an amazing job of capturing the humanistic side of athletes. Working with student-athletes at the collegiate level I fully understand this but those who aren’t fortunate to work in sports might not. This makes me want to root even harder for my team when I learn more and more about their history and their people. Definitely worth the money!
  • Tremendous

    By D15572f
    Best sports writing out there. Great writers and the college football coverage is exceptional.
  • Great app to accompany the coverage

    By SamCukr
    Simple and easy to use app. The only request I have is a dark mode for comments. It’s glaring to go from the dark mode to the bright white comments section. Otherwise 10/10.
  • This is what the ATHLETIC is about!
