Norton Core Router Cheaper Annual Subscription Available?

I just received my automatic renewal notice for the Core Router software, and they have kicked me over to a (frankly quite expensive) monthly charge of $10.65 ($127.80 per year!). I have looked all over the Norton website, and there doesn't appear to be an option to purchase the Norton Core Security Plus and the Norton Security with Backup for an annual subscription fee. I want to know if this is an option, and I would expect that it would be significantly cheaper to buy it annually than by the month (for example, Norton Security Deluxe goes for only $50 a year).

I feel like I am being gouged...

Re: Norton Core Router Cheaper Annual Subscription Available?

The more expensive renewals are due to the fact that you are getting the Core Security Plus software for unlimited number of devices, vs the Norton Security Premium/with Backup that only gives 10 device coverage. Also, the Core device itself is getting regular updates to the protection features that help protect your IOT devices. You have to pay for those as well.

Without the full Core subscription, your Core router just becomes a dumb router, and you cannot protect as many devices.

All: More info can be found here regarding the subscription. I'd gladly give up a Whopper and fries once a month for the security and peace of mind Core brings.

No one is forcing anything. The FAQ on the Norton Core page has this information.

Does Norton Core come with a subscription?

Yes. By purchasing on Norton.com, Norton Core includes a one-year complimentary subscription to Norton Core Security Plus that will automatically renew and be billed at $9.99/mo. USD (plus applicable taxes).* The subscription helps protect your home network and an unlimited number of your connected devices, including computers and mobile devices against malware, viruses, and hackers. It also comes with parental control software for your kid’s devices while at home or on-the-go.3

And

What happens if I don’t renew my subscription?

If you don’t renew the Norton Core Security Plus subscription after your complimentary term, Norton Core will continue to function as a high performance router. Because the subscription is integral to the router’s security, all network, IoT, and device level security, plus parental control features will be unavailable if the subscription is not renewed.
