I’m delighted to be extending Australia’s best value digital subscription across all of our regional daily news titles, offering readers the best news and information from their local city, their state and the world; as well as excellent products, benefits and rewards – all for as little as $3 a week for the first 12 weeks.”
Under the metered content model, visitors to each local masthead’s website will be able to view 10 articles per month, before being invited to subscribe to its ‘Unlimited’ digital subscription packages. A subscription to each masthead’s ‘Unlimited’ packages will give users:
- Unlimited digital access to their local mastheads;
- Full access to their local masthead’s new responsive mobile and tablet apps; and
- Full access to a digital replica of their local masthead’s print edition.
