The offer: $4.99 a month for a limited selection of stories from The New York Times, The Economist, and more. They’re the latest trying to unlock the space between $0 and a full subscription.
The $4-a-month app, which launched in January, was an attempt to reach readers outside the U.K. and find a new revenue stream outside The Times’ usual strict paywall.
Tamedia’s 12-App collects the 12 best stories each day from the company’s 20-plus publications.
The module formerly known as Watching is linking out less than it used to, but the Times says it still believes in curating the work of other news organizations.
The New York Times en Español is the Times’ latest attempt to grow its audience internationally.
It sees service journalism as a way to build digital revenue and reach an audience interested in advice and recommendations as much as the Times’ criticism and culture coverage.
“We all had a sense that something important was happening, but at the time there were actually very few users. So it was a bet on people getting online and buying more PCs.”
Patrick LaForge, who’s leading the team, says the Times hopes the new unit adds value to readers and encourages them to subscribe.
