BAD Form Microsoft: TechNet Subscriptions Microsoft is retiring the TechNet Subscription service As IT trends and business dynamics have evolved, so has Microsoft’s set of offerings for IT professionals who are looking to learn, evaluate and deploy Microsoft technologies and services. In recent years, we have seen a usage shift from paid to free evaluation experiences and resources. As a result, Microsoft has decided to retire the TechNet Subscriptions service. Microsoft will continue to honor all existing TechNet Subscriptions. Subscribers with active accounts may continue to access program benefits until their current subscription period concludes. IT professionals who would like to purchase a new TechNet Subscription or renew an existing subscription may do so through August 31, 2013. Subscribers may activate purchased subscriptions through September 30, 2013. We are committed to helping customers through this transition phase and will remain focused on providing IT professionals with free access to a broad set of TechNet assets that support the needs of IT professionals around the world.

More background on the retirement decision and implications for current subscribers is available in the TechNet Subscriptions FAQ. This page includes additional information for retail and direct subscribers, as well as those that receive it through Microsoft programs such as Not-For-Resale (NFR), Volume Licensing (VL), IT Academy (ITA), Microsoft Partner Network (MPN), Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP).
