Is Inside Outside: Home & Garden Worth the Subscription Cost?
As of July 13th, 2020, Inside Outside will run you $5.99/month if you subscribe on Amazon, or $5.99/month (with the option of paying $47.88 for the year) if you go direct.
Is it worth it?
In our opinion, this is very much a “sometimes” service. It's the kind of thing you might subscribe to for a month or two during the winter when you need a bit of sunshine, or in the spring for a month when you're looking for garden inspiration. The catalog of shows isn't HUGE, so it would be pretty easy to watch everything of interest in a month or two and then give it a break for a while.
We're currently in the middle of a month-long subscription and we're definitely enjoying the programming, but of course, it doesn't have the depth of content you'd get with many similarly-priced services like PBS Masterpiece or Acorn TV.
Still, when you consider you get a full month for the same price as ONE Blockbuster rental (back when they were still around), I wouldn't hesitate to get it every now and then.
Where Can I Sign Up for a Free Trial of Inside Outside: Home & Garden?
There are two ways to subscribe to Inside Outside:
- Go directly to their website HERE and sign up. They have channels available via iPhone, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Roku, and FireTV.
- Subscribe through Amazon HERE. If you like to switch around from month to month, we highly recommend subscribing to channels through Amazon since it lets you quickly and easily see which subscriptions are active, how much they cost, and when they expire/re-bill. To get to the subscription management page, just look for the “Your Memberships & Subscriptions” link in your account.
With either subscription method, you get a free 7-day trial to see how you like it.
