Site Update: Thurrott Premium by the Month and More

Now that the initial release of Thurrott Premium is behind us, we’re fine-tuning things and responding to feedback. Case in point: This week’s update, which adds a monthly subscription option, a Premium Content page, and more.

Here’s what’s new.

Monthly subscription option for Thurrott Premium. While you can continue to save money by subscribing to Thurrott Premium for one year at a time, we’ve received many requests for a monthly offering too. So it’s available now at a cost of $7 per month, alongside the $64 annual subscription.

Live chat for First Ring Daily. As you may know, Brad and I record a live episode of the First Ring Daily podcast every Friday at 1pm ET/10am PT. It’s open to everyone—by which I mean it’s not a Thurrott Premium—and there is now a live chat option available at

Premium Content page. If you look at the nav menu at the top of the site, you will see a new Premium Content item linking to a page that displays only the Thurrott Premium articles. This was another top request, and one I was also asking for.

If you’d like to know more, Tim has posted a changelog that contains all the updates and fixes he’s made this week.

It’s also worth noting that a few long-planned features should be here soon, including the micro-blog that will replace Thurrott Daily and notifications for comments and replies. So we’ll have more soon.

Thanks everyone. And thanks especially to Thurrott Premium subscribers. I’m blown away by the support we’ve received, it’s really appreciated.
