Weekly Subscription News: Contracts, Cryptocurrency and Content
Featuring XOXO, Elder Scrolls Online, F+W and Vox
In this week’s subscription news, we have everything from the shuttering of subscription services to Facebook’s creation of cryptocurrency: XOXO shuts down its subscription platform before it even launches, YouTube is giving away free Showtime subscriptions to longtime users, and Vox Media ratifies its first contract with the Writers Guild of America, East. Also, Amazon gives up on its restaurant delivery service, Facebook creates Libra cryptocurrency, and a news app brings Bloomberg, Financial Times and The Economist’s content together under a single paywall.
