I tried it. The bonus content is not as good quality as the main stuff, but there's a huge amount of it. It's a nice thing to put on while you're cooking or something to absorb some information.

The way the billing works is that if you downgrade from your Pro subscription mid-month, you lose the privileges right away but you also get a credit for the prorated amount remaining. Initially I was put off by this, but now I think it's a win-win. You can turn on and off pro as you see fit and not have to worry that you're paying for this all-you-can-eat buffet that you're not going to use.

I never used the option that's available in Pro to download videos, but that might be handy for other people.

So about how much more bonus content is there compared to the basic, and what kind? For example, are there more tracks, more stuff in the Library, Workspaces, courses, etc.?

It's video from conferences and lectures and stuff. Click on the Library tab, then click on 'All Types' and you can narrow the list - Conference and Bonus Series are the two categories only available on Pro.
