Unlike Origin Access you get access to all DLC's and the entire library so it's worth the 240.
Origin Access Premier is still cheaper at R199/month and has "Extra content included with new EA games
(including MTX bonuses and expansion packs)" it includes new games (like Fifa 20). It's still too much for me though (all these game subscription services seem too much, except Xbox Game Pass).

I think soo far EA only released 4 games this year on PC (Fifa 20, Madden 20, Sea of Solitude and Anthem). So for R1800 (R200/month for 9 months) you don't own the games, just have access to them as long as you have the subscription.
You can almost buy the games brand new(or at least get discounts for most of them) for the amount spent.

Ubisoft only released 6 games for PC this year soo far (according to List of Ubisoft games - Wikipedia). At R240/month that's R2160 for 6 games (Trials Rising, Far Cry: New Dawn, Anno 1800, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, The Settlers, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint).

Unless you're getting these services to play lots of their older games(which you can probably get cheaper) you're almost paying the cost of the full game anyway, without actually owning them

I'm going to wait for a yearly discount subscription, like the discount on origin access.

I've also subscribed as well with no message from them. The unfortunate part is that they never stated this before but they require your credit card details in order for you to begin the "free" trial. I read some info that stated that if you don't cancel then you get charged for the month of October if you don't cancel by the 30th of September. This is directly from the Uplay plus page.

They also charge you a fee for the apparent free trial that may get reversed but I'm not sure about the reversal of said charges

I tried to get the trial but it says "you have no dedicated store in your country"
