As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

    You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
