Solved If Bluestacks App player is free why do they want me to pay?

Specs: Windows 10
After I download Bluestacks app player and started playing they want me to subscribe for $2 a month to continue using their software. Is this normal or a scam?
And actually it's a choice between downloading & trying out some app's I'm not interested in and subscribing for $2 a month.

✔ Best Answer
There are two versions of the player - - Standard & Premium.

The Standard version with sponsored ads is free.

The faster Premium version without ads is subscription-based, currently $24 per year.

If you want the free version, do not click the "Buy Now" button on the left.
Instead, click "Install our sponsored apps" on the right.

It's all very simple, even my 8-year old daughter understands it.

The problem is that they are being deceptive in their practices. They lead you to believe that its free. You dont find out til the next day that its not. $24.00 can be allot of money to people. The free with ad offerings are lame at best.

BlueStacks IS free!
There is no deceit, there is a choice.
When the pop-up occurs select the Box on the right to download an application and the screen goes away the application downloads in the background you don't even have to see it you can go to settings to delete the downloaded app and not even ever try it.
you do not have to pay to use it but if you don't want the annoying ads you pay.
so you have a choice.
1. use it for free with ads popping up everywhere.
2. pay for it and don't have ads popping up all over the place.

NOTE: I have been using bluestacks for free for two years. Just to make sure it works.
I'm a very cautious person before giving money and today I decided this program deserves to have the money given the fact that I have watched commercial free, full versions of current television series (& old favorites) as well as films that are currently in the theater (& of course old favorites).
I have impressed my friends with this application emulator running Android applications on my pc.
today I decided to pay the reasonable $24 for a year because I appreciate the fact that I haven't had to pay to go to the movies, I have been able to catch up on current television series, enjoy old series which are no longer on primetime AND this program has saved me two years worth of paying for cable TV (that is priceless)!
