The service has temporarily lowered its entry-level price for new customers.

Cardinals trade for running back Adrian Peterson
The Cardinals lost star running back David Johnson to a wrist injury in the first game of the season. Peterson caught just two passes with New Orleans for a total of four yards.

Active Volume Stock: Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO)
Denver Inv Ltd Com stated it has 0.06% in EPAM Systems Inc (NYSE:EPAM). (NASDAQ: CSCO ) on Monday, May 15 to "Overweight" rating. Many consider the equity oversold if the reading is below -80 and overbought if the indicator is between 0 and -20.

The price cut is only available for a limited time and is restricted to new customers. This is for a plan that has commercials (we highly recommend splurging a few extra bucks a month for the "almost" ad-free version of the service, it's well worth it). As long as you sign up before January 9th, 2018, you'll pay the promotional price of $5.99 a month for 12 months before the price reverts to $7.99. After the first year of service (including trial period), the subscription plan will increase to the standard $8 per month cost. In May, it launched a $40-a-month live TV streaming service with more than 50 channels.
