Subscription Terms and Prices
Backstage offers digital annual, semi-annual, and monthly subscriptions that are all auto-renewing. This means that after the period for which you have paid is over, they renew again for the same term and your credit card is charged again. This way, you do not need to manually renew, and your subscription will continue until you cancel.
Print can be added to semi-annual and annual subscriptions or be subscribed to as a print only yearly subscription. In addition, Call Sheet in print can be subscribed to as well. The monthly subscription is billed once a month, every month. The semi-annual subscription is billed once every 6 months and the annual subscription once a year.
