I don't have any official word, but I'd be very confident the answer will be no - the paladin deck will be the first subscription item.
Paizo's subscriptions are never backdated (though sometimes they offer discounts on pre-subscription "backorders" - it doesn't look like that's true with the class decks).
I think a good question though might be what will be done about the discount on the first seven decks. Previously, card game subscribers got a discount when buying those seven since there was no class deck subscription. It is clear that card gave subscribers won't get a discount on the new ones, since you can now take the subscription. So, what, if any discounts will apply the original seven?
Will card game subscribers still get a discount on just those seven?
Will class deck subscribers get a discount on just those seven?
Will there be no more discount on those seven? (Sort of like the subscription, after the time has passed you can't get a discount.)
By the way, keep in mind there is no rule about how long you have to subscribe. If you want to subscribe for just one or two decks and then cancel, you can do that, no questions asked. But be warned, once you behold the awesomeness of the class decks, you might find it hard to give up the subscription.
Other than new character / role / token cards what does this contain? Is this basicly just a bunch of repeat cards? What new cards does this bring to the party? If I have RotR and S&S and Character Addon decks what "NEW" boons does this Have? New Weapons? Armor? Spells? Are they just a bunch of repeat cards in each deck? There are no Deck lists that I know of like the other games have. Please help I like the idea of getting new characters each month but not if I am going to end up with almost a hundred repeat cards each and every month.
So if I don't plan on playing in PACG Organized Play or I am a completionist (which I have problems with) these really are not worth purchasing all of them since I will end up with several hundred Daggers and or Leather Armor and stuff I have in all three starter boxes and the character add on decks. Maybe if my Son wants to play a gunslinger in all of the boxes I should buy him that deck or a particular one that strikes me as cool?

I believe they said they are working on changing the process of how those documents get updated so that they are pushed out more frequently, but in the meantime...nope. I've been tracking using an excel spreadsheet that I made and keeping on a cloud service
