My copy of "Now Playing" was a little late this month, so I went on the TCM website to see if I could check the status of my subscription.

I was led to this page:
https://secure.palmcoastd.com/pcd/eServ?iServ=MDI2MzE1ODA5NA==

It states there that the TCM magazine will stop publishing this August! I always look forward each month to my copy, and circle all the movies I am interested in to set my PVR. I tried the online version, and found it very awkward. Printing the entire monthly list is cost prohibitive. Am I the only one upset about this?

I guess nobody reads anymore and I can still remember the promos on TCM by Robert Osborne promoting the magazine.

Not that this is a solution, but I set TCM's "Daily Schedule" page as my browser's home page.

Yeah, I don't like it, but that's the business world we live in today. People don't read magazines like they used to.

You know, I actually only flip through the articles, but use the listing throughout the month.

I am disappointed too. I took the magazine for granted. Glad I saved some issues just for the photos and articles. I hope this doesn't bode ill for Turner Classic Movies, the channel. Remember AMC before commercials? I dread the day "tasteful" ads begin to run, a la Public Television. I hope Turner has some kind of trust set up so that we never have to endure the commercialization of TCM.

I doubt there is any carryover to TCM, the channel. As noted, fewer people read print magazines of any kind any more. The hosts like to brag about how many young people watch TCM habitually, and they are the least likely to subscribe to a print magazine.
