MyHeritage supports 23andMe v5 and Living DNA uploads

If you missed the MyHeritage blog of Sep 12, 2018, "New: MyHeritage supports 23andMe v5 and Living DNA uploads", you need to check it out. 

Not only are they supporting uploads of tests from Ancestry, 23andMe and Family Tree DNA, they are  now accepting uploads of 23andMe v5 and Living DNA data files. 

MyHeritage offers users full access to DNA Matching, Ethnicity Estimates, and a chromosome browser. DNA matches can be found from around the world and MyHeritage is especially strong in Europe. You may be surprised at the number of matches you will find there. 

Of special note, is the major change coming December 1, 2018. To quote the blog:
As of December 1, 2018, our policy regarding DNA uploads will change: DNA Matching will remain free for uploaded DNA data, but unlocking additional DNA features (for example, ethnicity estimate, chromosome browser, and some others) will require an extra payment for DNA files uploaded after this date. We will announce the full details of the new policy once it is finalized, closer to December 1st. All DNA data that was uploaded to MyHeritage in the past, and all DNA data that is uploaded now and prior to December 1, 2018, will continue to enjoy full access to all DNA features for free. These uploads will be grandfathered in and will remain free.
If you have done these other tests, and have not already done so, now is the time to upload your data. For more information, check out their blog here
