Windy Premium - ecmwf 6z 18z

Hey Windy team,
I'm on the fence whether to buy the Premium subscription (so that I can support this amazing platform) because having an hourly forecast using ECMWF modelling doesn't appeal to me unfortunately. This is because there is a 12 hour wait between forecasts and I'd rather pay for a subscription that also adds the 6z & 18z forecasts too (mind you I have no idea how much licensing is to add them).
It would be great to have the ECMWF forecast every 6 hours to match the GFS runs so we can compare them better.
Maybe ecmwf 6z 18z will be part of Premium in the near furture?
Either way I love this weather service and will continue to use and advocate it!
Stay safe everyone :)
In this announcement , Ivo says
So far, Windy Premium offers a 1h forecast. We also plan to add a 6h update time for the ECMWF model.

I do not agree adding ecmwf 06z and 18z would mean ruining the forecasts, since the best initial data concentration is between 00 and 12 Z!

@seba994 What means "best initial data" and why would it be "concentrated in [00..12]h UTC"?
@idefix37 Yes, Ivo made a statement about this. He stated that the ECMWF model will be updated every 6 hours. We hope to come soon. Thank you for your information.
