I told my brother to subscribe a sport. And, I am still waiting for his reply. And if I want to know whether he has subscribed or not; I can tell him:

Have you subscribed it yet?
Have you already subscribed?


Have you subscribed?

To me the first is better because I do not know until now if he has subscribed. But I don't know the real difference between the three. And on the other hand, some people could say "did you subscribed?"

So I'm a little lost...

  • The 'it' should not be present in "Have you subscribed it yet?" Commented Jul 26, 2022 at 22:36

    Also, I don't think you are using the word subscribe correctly, or at least you are not using it in a way familiar to me. Is your brother signing up for a class, or joining a team, or subscribing to watch it on television, or something else?

    @Meedfried If he is joining a team, I would say (in American English) that you told him to sign up for it. We subscribe to a magazine or newspaper.
