    Or free online from your local library via the Libby app on Google play store. All you need is a library card and PIN, your local library will sort this.
    why pay a £1, risk auto renewal and give away your personal data. Radio times totally free online (edited)
    Can you circle with a digital pen the shows you want to watch? Doing that, or using a highlighter, is the best bit about a physical copy of the Radio Times

    Re the postage for £52, I think it’s the way phones display the lines- tilt you phone to landscape and the £52 is on the total savings line. Postage is zero
    Good spot! Portrait says Delivery total £51.47. Saving Total £0.00. Landscape = Delivery £0.00. Saving Total £51.47.

    I've tried this for the past 2 years and chose the closest date to Christmas to start. Both occasions I never received anything as my DD got "lost in their system" and they wanted to charge the full price. Heat for the offer tho
    Same, I managed to do it twice, as I recall, but this time they must have cottoned on, said I am welcome to take out the 29 squids offer.

    Can’t see a £1 deal ….
    I've just checked the link and it takes me straight through to a page to get 12 issues for £1 on the print edition.

    I used to work for a magazine bureau that would handle radio times subscriptions and they'd offer this type of deal all the time to try to lock people into DD payments. Just make sure to cancel. We had so many people ringing in complaining because their subscription auto renewed.

    Well it all seemed to go through OK but when I'm logged in it says there's no subscription no £1 has come out my bank either.. I have had this deal a couple of years ago but I've used different emails and bank details! .. Can anyone help please? Tia

    Contact customer services - most likely they will reply that your address has had too many trials. Had the same myself but tried again a year later and was accepted.

    When should I cancel it b4 fully charged renewals (once 12th issue will be delivered)?
    I always cancel direct debit after the £1 has been taken. Still get all copies.

    No mention of £1 offer on that link??

    Can you cancel the DD as soon as it’s taken and still receive all issues?

    For those of you seeing £52, like I did, search for “Radio Times £1 offer” in Google and you’ll see it
    I believe so. In fact, I'm pretty sure you can phone and cancel the sub after first edition delivered, and still get the remaining 11. That's certainly the way annual subs seem to work.

    Finally had my subscription number emailed this morning so could log in and cancel the subscription- fingers crossed the 12 arrive!
    I've had mine through this morning too despite having a subscription at this same address a couple of years ago.. I think with this subscription you can't cancel straight away or you won't receive any copies.. Could you let me know how you get on please? When is your first issue coming?

    If you cancel before the £1 payment, it's unlikely you'll receive any issues.

    I cancelled a few years back after a couple of issues - they stopped sending any further issues out after that. Cancelling just before the 12th issue is going to be really near the knuckle, it may be too late to stop the next DD, plus it’s Christmas week.

    Can you cancel straight away and still receive paid for copy’s or do you have to wait until last issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Happened to me where the delivery is showing as 51.47 and I have just contacted them and they said that I would need to wait 24 hours for the order to appear on the system before they can look at it. Not great first impressions.

    EDIT: it was my phone so no issue. Great deal! (edited)
    Tilt your phone, £51.47 is on the total savings line

    Make sure you check your confirmation email. I was set up on the £52 subscription. Had to phone their customer services to get it sorted which they did no problem.
    Yes, mine has just done that!grrr

    I’ve done this a fair few years but rarely end up actually reading them sadly, think I’ll save the recycling this year.

    Good deal if people are really struggling, but the radio times has been the start of my Xmas since I was about 7 years old.
    If it didn't make money it wouldn't exist, and I'd find that quite sad.

    I did this offer a few years back.. they came on time..after the first few weeks I stopped opening the wrapper… I just don’t watch a lot of terrestrial tv and if I missed something, the catch up services work fine,
    still a very good deal if you need a physical TV guide.

    Have subscribed to this deal previously. I only did so for the Christmas edition. We were going away and I forgot to take it with us so ended up buying (again) at face value!
