How do I use OFFSET in Excel 2010 to refer to a formula in a different sheet?

In my excel sheet, I can use this formula and it gives me the value right below cell B4 on another sheet:


But if I type 'subscriber-count'!$B$4 into cell A1 of my sheet, this formula does not work:


I realize that happens because A1 is an address and not a value. How do I make excel recognize A1's value of 'subscriber-count'!$B$4 rather than its address of A1?
