  1. Are premium memberships being phased out in favor of YouTube channel memberships? I noticed now that my subscription seems to not have been renewed this year and my profile page says “No future invoice. Your subscription has been canceled.”

    AND

    I’d also like to ask the same question about Premium Memberships being a thing of the past.

    Yes, but we weren’t really sure what form they were going to take. This is the first video I’ve seen any mention of new ways to support. Have a look here: https://www.tested.com/art/903210-announcement-regarding-tested-premium-membership/

  3. Been a premium member for years, and usually got the gift in mail in January / February but nothing this year, think last thing i received was the LP.

  4. trebling the membership? i cant afford that. you say adam that tested wont change but norm says different. will we always have access to the back catalogue or will we no longer be able to access it unless we pay this youtube crap?

    flameboyz. contact them. norm said to if you havent got the gift m8

  5. I do love being able to cut circles into aluminum with a router. I used this exact same method with a Milwaukee M18 router to make a custom two fan radiator shroud for a project vehicle I’ve been working on. It really does have a super clean, almost milled finish. If you do decide to do this, go slow, and definitely wear ear and eye protection!

  6. Tested Premium member or YouTube channel member?
    I am a premium member of the Tested website and I always liked the early or extra content that came with that. There hasn’t been much extra content during lockdown which is understandable but now there’s youtube channel membership. Are both current or should I discontinue my premium membership? I can’t afford the Patron level support on YouTube so I guess the extra content is beyond my means now. Could someone from Tested clarify the situation, please?

  7. There is no Premium Membership any more, it was discontinued in February, and will expire 1 year from your last renewal prior to February. Your Premium Membership appears to have lapsed already judging by the lack of Premium badge on your avatar.

    The only option going forward is the Channel Membership at 3x the cost of Premium, I’m afraid.
