Briefing Com, keeping or not?

  1. Just wondering how many folks are going to pay up for Briefing Com.

    I just sent them my cancelation. I think the "new" service is just a sham way to get a price increase. And I think it was underhanded. The only thing I ever really used was the "live" In Play, which was not very live anyway. It was often quite delayed.

    I used it premarket just to get a feel for things and get any hot story stocks off my opening orders.

    I don't believe it is worth the price increase, and besides, they made me mad with the way they sneaked it in.

    What do others think?

    The site is far LESS user friendly than it was, but isn't the basic $9.95 / month service staying at that price?

    I've subscribed to Briefing for years, more out of habit than anything else, but dropped them after this latest bit of shenanigans. Can't see any reason for a 150% price increase to access the live In Play, which as TonySanDiego mentioned above wasn't exactly "realtime" as the name implies. As to many of the other traditional services (earnings reports, gov't reports, ipo's, upgrades/downgrades, etc.) they are available on Yahoo for free. And for a (more) delayed In Play you can always go to:
  4. I also cancelled the subscription. Not worth the new price. Besides that Tcnet has the delayed version free. I think there will be no delayed version from tomorrow onwards.

    I still have it JUST for Live In play.

    There are other news services, but which are much quickier and still not too expensive?
