Refused to buy the sun on any day of the week, so won't be changing any time soon.

Re: Will you buy The Sun on Sunday?

I'll not vote as I don't buy any Sunday paper and a no vote would skew the poll.

It'll be interesting to see how it sells. When the NOW ceased trading it was selling around 2.6 million copies every Sunday. Only about 1.3 m of those sales moved over to other titles. The other 1.3 m have been lost from the market.

The market is in general decline anyway so it's a brave move by Murdoch, Even though the biggest losses by far are at the Guardian and Independent stables.
I'm sure there will be incentives in the weekday Sun to encourage a Sunday purchase though.

Re: Will you buy The Sun on Sunday?

Provided it is priced below the Sunday Mirror and the People, it should sell well

Re: Will you buy The Sun on Sunday?

Course not.But then I don't buy the sun either. I don't buy any newspapers anymore as they are all infected by bad journalism,gossip,falsehoods,inaccuracies and regurgitated PR crap.The only paper I go out of my way to buy is Private Eye.

I suggest that anyone who hasn't read Flat Earth News thus far does so.

Re: Will you buy The Sun on Sunday?

I will buy the Sun on Sunday, I miss the NOTW.

But then I never bought the NOTW for its Hi-Brow quality journalisim, I have my broad sheets for that.

I just enjoy the more light hearted dead donkey storys. Too many people take it too seriously and don't seemto be able to step out side the box. Tabloids fill a gap in the market and no one does a red top better than News International.

Love it or hate it, its good for the WC magazine rack.

Re: Will you buy The Sun on Sunday?

I never see the point in buying a newspaper.. You're paying for 12+ hours old news when instead you can get upto date news on the net..
