Star Telegram to stop Saturday delivery service

  1. Wow! Isn't it interesting that I read the news about the Startlegram stopping Saturday delivery service in the Dallas Morning News, but nothing on the Star Telegeram's web page about this new development. I used to look forward to the Saturday morning paper as I could drink coffee and look at how all the high schools I have had some connection with did in their Friday night games. Now not available until Sunday morning, so guess eliminating Saturday's paper is easier to bear. (But no home delivery at all for me. Can't afford $400 for so little.)

  2. When muck goes I subscribe. Not until then or it just goes away.
     
  3. But what about the coupons?!?
     
  4. I do not get the novelty of newspapers in this era. By the time you read it a significant amount of the core information is no longer material—or worse—entirely different or inaccurate.

    If you have a phone, tablet or computer with Internet access why purchase a paper? Perhaps it’s just a generational difference.
     
  5. That's exactly what it is. I'd much rather read from an actual paper or magazine. No different than books. I don't know, it's just so much more comfortable reading from the real thing. I'm just old I guess.
     
  6. Careful. No references to “olds” or it will kick off

  7. Maybe it is just generational, but when I'm sitting eating bacon and eggs for breakfast,, I love to have a newspaper there to read. Yes, I have an iPhone and an iPad , but I can't wipe my greasy fingers on them.
     
  8. Definitely didn’t think you were an old. No wonder you love a blue blood and can’t understand the 2014 playoff debacle. Geez

  10. Or put them up in front of your face so you don't have to look at the wife?
     
  11. Six more days to go
     
  12. And rely on and trust that Morning News will give adequate Fort Worth coverage....
     
  13. Who said there was a wife?

  15. I don't really care about reading physical paper but the two things I do miss from the paper is the local news because there used to be a significant portion of the newspaper that at least allowed me to find out whenever I was inclined to do so what was going on around Fort Worth in a centralized location and the car adds which were useful in negotiating among dealers. Other than that, as was pointed out above, it just seems like everything else is something I already know because I saw it online the day before.

    No thanks.
     
  17. The "Star Telegram" also announced today that Mac Engle articles would only appear in the Saturday Morning edition.
