Affordable and Quality Squawk Service

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good and affordable squawk service to keep up to speed with the latest breakout news, data etc?

I have done some researching online, and came up with the following.
- Livesquawk
- RANsquawk
- TradeTheNews
- Sigma Squawk
- Talking-Forex

Out of them, Talking-Forex is the most affordable (20GBP per month), but it covers mainly forex-related news. I need a service that covers macro/stocks/forex/commodities/financials news, which the other services cover. However, they are in the hundreds of dollars/pounds per month range, which is a lot for a retail trader. Thus, looking for a more affordable and quality squawk service (not delayed news).

Any suggestions please?

I have done some researching online, and came up with the following.
- Livesquawk
- RANsquawk
- TradeTheNews
- Sigma Squawk
- Talking-Forex

- Talking-Forex is RANsquawk, they cover macro in the FX package and e.g. bond auctions.
- a good set of twitter subscriptions gives you 90% for free (you can even make it talk with some client-apps)

I use http://www.financialjuice.com/ its real time and free. They have adds on their website, some not much, but I don't have that tab on the screen. I just listen to it. They only talk when there is something to say. Quiet vast majority of the time.

I use benzingapro. Its somewhat expensive but they give a discount if you pay for a year.
More focus on equities than futures though.

Thank you all for the above suggestions.

Just gave them a try-out over the last week.

- TFX seems quite reasonable for the price.
- Been using TweetDeck to have a news feed beside my charts. Great way and it's FREE!
- Financial Juice seems good too. Just lots of Ads everywhere which makes the screen really cluttered. Would have preferred more voice announcements though.
- TopStepTrader chat room is ok IF you need a chat room to discuss trade entries/exits. Would prefer more factual news provider.

I threw together a quick low quality video review of Financial Juice and how many adds they have on screen..... I count about 2 per screen, 1 line about 5 or 6 words with "Promoted" following it and a rectangle box in the left bottom corner.

@Blash,
I have been listening to the the financialjuice news squawk for a week, and there has been an obvious delay of at least 10 seconds. e.g. at 9am on my ( accurate) clock, with a new bar already printing, the guy says " OK, 10 seconds til the close of the hour ". His FOMC report was way late also.
Have you noticed this ?

It's not caused by any lag on my end. And their text news alert is actually very speedy.
I listened to their tickstrike also, which I like, but I am presuming it is also delayed (but this is more difficult to quantify).
I can only guess that the audio news delay is deliberate on their part.
Perhaps they plan to charge for a non-delayed version ?
