This Valentine’s weekend, subscription companies are making strategic moves to keep the revenue flowing. Sports Illustrated tries premium memberships, Ordslip and DoorDash partner to offer on-demand delivery to restaurants, and Google shutters its Stadia game dev studio to focus on distribution and technology instead.

Also, Connecticut’s attorney general wants more information about a possible takeover of the Hartford Courant by hedge fund Alden Global Capital, industry trade group Incompas urges the FCC to restore net neutrality rules, and Spotify is considering á la carte payments for podcast subscriptions.
