Why we’re switching Ulysses to Subscription – Building Ulysses – Medium
Good explanation of the dynamics of running a software company in an era of free OS updates and downloaded updates, and why this makes subscription pricing sensible.

In short: need updates for OS compat, avoids holding back features for big releases with associated marketing and revenue spike, allows one price for all platforms, plus trial periods.

Netflix Canada hikes prices as streaming competition heats up - The Globe and Mail
TORONTO — The Canadian Press
Published Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017

The popular video streaming service is hiking prices for new members effective immediately. It will do the same for existing users after notifying them by e-mail in the coming weeks.

Netflix’s standard plan will now cost a dollar more – or $10.99 a month – to watch content on two screens at a time.

The basic plan, which does not offer high definition video and only permits one streaming screen at a time, also goes up a dollar to $8.99 a month.

Premium plan subscribers will pay $2 more for up to four simultaneous streams and ultra high-definition 4K content. It will now cost $13.99 monthly.

It’s the first price increase in nearly two years that affects subscribers in Canada.

Facebook wants to help news publishers sell subscriptions, but says it doesn’t want a cut of the revenue - Recode
It also distinguishes the company from other big platforms, notably Apple, which sells digital subscriptions through its App store and its Apple News feature but takes up to 30 percent of the monthly revenue from those transactions. Apple also gets direct access to subscriber data when that happens.

Facebook’s paywall plans are part of its ongoing effort to address publishers’ complaints about the way the company uses their work, and what kind of compensation they get in return.
