“While we are absolutely delighted to have passed the 200,000 digital subscriptions mark, we take nothing for granted and continue to improve our product offering and add even more value for our members,” Peter Tonagh, News Corp Australia’s chief operating officer, said.

News Corp has also unveiled new enhancements on its mobile and online sites as well as launching a new subscriber rewards program called +Rewards.
“We are thrilled to be launching +Rewards, which we think will be a very attractive proposition to members. It’s a real case of ‘watch this space’ – as the program evolves in the coming weeks and months we will be adding some really exciting and valuable benefits and offers," Tonagh added.
The Daily Telegraph and Herald Sun revealed their new-look this morning, introducing a ‘My News’ section that will be a personalised hub for subscribers to store favourite articles and content and create shortcuts.

For those who are already fully fledged subscribers to News Corp sites, the +Rewards program will automatically follow through onto the mastheads; The Daily Telegraph+, Herald Sun+, The Courier-Mail+ and The Advertiser+.
