The Athletic: Sports News Pros

Terrible Customer ServiceI signed up and paid for the athletic monthly subscription service, when I go to login to my account it tells me I’m not a member. I contacted customer service several times, I think they only have one person and her name is Hailey. I sent her pictures of the confirmation for my subscription service and they can’t figure out why I don’t have access. They continue to tell me I need to reset my password which was done and I still do not have the access that I paid for. After dealing with this lady for 2 weeks still no access I requested a refund for my purchase and they denied it so basically they just stole from me, I would not recommend them to anyone their customer service and system is trash I will dispute the charge through my bank and they lost a customer due to terrible service and ethics..AltheticistheftVersion: 13.2.1

Bit of a letdownGot the athletic and kept the subscription for over a year but honestly, it’s not worth it. They signed up some journalists I like but their output has been sporadic at best and the writing, to be honest, took a nosedive for more than a few after the move. Reporting is often slanted in every article and they’ve employed some people who have made outrageous accusations against fans of rival teams without basis, while others ignore sources when reporting on some teams (see: anything from New York) but use the same source if it’s negative info about a smaller market. They say they’re different, but they ain’t..CheesebearballsVersion: 8.1.8

The Athletic: Sports News Cons

Comments section needs work!The content of the app is great, but that’s a separate review. This review is for the App itself, which is really poor in my opinion. The comments section particularly needs a total refresh. If someone replies to your comment, it is absurd there is no way to go straight back to your comment to see a reply. You need to endlessly scroll to your comment (there are usually hundreds) to find it. Surely there should be a way to go straight to it? The Times app does this well? Also, content can sometimes be a bit difficult to find, with the layout on the homepage not always showing the most recent articles I’ve seen referenced on Twitter?.GT3999Version: 13.7.0

God awfulYou gotta pay $13 a month to even open the article that clueless people wrote just for click bait and a money grab. Makes me laugh at some of the hockey trades they tried to stir up because after seeing that it really makes you realize how brain dead some of those writers are... kyrou and a 1st for Kreider😂😂 my guy needs to lay off the meds.Bread3477Version: 8.1.13
