We at Pittsburgh Sports Now wanted to let you the readers know about a change we will be making in the way we present our football recruiting coverage on the site.
Since our start six years ago, PSN has made virtually all our our Pitt football recruiting stories free to view, however that will be changing slightly.
Starting immediately, we will now be making more of these stories available to only our Die-Hard subscribers. The way we will present this is that when Pitt initially offers a recruit, that story will still remain free for you to read. However, any other follow-up story on players that the Pitt coaches are pursuing, in-contact with, or are visiting will fall under our Die-Hard content. There will be, of course, exceptions to the rule. But for the most part, this will be our new standard operating procedure.
To be completely transparent with you, this is being done for financial reasons. Like every business in the country, COVID-19 has impacted Pittsburgh Sports Now and we’ve been forced to make changes to our business and find new ways to provide revenue for the PSN staff and our large team of contributors.
By increasing our Die-Hard content, this will address two areas: 1) will provide our existing, loyal customers will content that they’re already paying for. 2) we’re really hoping this will be an incentive for readers that aren’t already Die-Hard members to sign-up. PSN has consistently shown over the years, that we produce the most recruiting content in town so we believe becoming a Die-Hard member will be well worth the price of $3.99 a month or $38.00 for 12 months.
We hope you understand this decision and really hope that you will consider helping Pittsburgh Sports Now by signing up for a membership. Unlike some businesses, we have added to our staff of writers this year. But this comes at a price. By helping us, this will allow us to continue to grow, which in turn, will allow us to provide you with the most college and high school coverage in Pittsburgh.
