Online readers of The Examiner will receive access to a digital print edition of the newspaper when they subscribe for full website access at www.examiner.com.au from Tuesday.
As announced on September 6, The Examiner is launching local news subscription packages for unlimited access to its website.
Readers can sign up and pay at www.examiner.com.au from Tuesday.
Subscribers will get all of the local news, sport and community information from Northern Tasmania produced by The Examiner’s journalists, plus the latest in national news, sport and lifestyle advice, for only $3.75 a week.
The Examiner editor Courtney Greisbach said just as our newspaper has a cover price, we’re now asking online audiences to support us as subscribers.
“This change is so The Examiner can continue providing the quality local journalism they trust to keep our community informed, entertained and connected,” Ms Greisbach said.
“For 176 years The Examiner has embraced and driven change: we were Tasmania’s first newspaper and Tasmania’s first voice.
“Over the years that voice has continued to grow stronger and louder as we campaign and drive progress for Northern Tasmania.”
The first 30 days of website access is free for subscribers, who can choose to pay monthly or take out an annual subscription with a 20 per cent discount.
Subscriptions include access to the digital print edition of the The Examiner, an interactive digital reproduction of the newspaper that allows every page of the paper to be read on an internet-connected tablet or desktop.
The digital print edition will be available to subscribers at the homepage of www.examiner.com.au.
The printed version of The Examiner will continue to be published and distributed Monday to Sunday.
Visitors to www.examiner.com.au from Tuesday will be able to read five articles a month for free before they are invited to subscribe for unlimited website access.
Some website content will remain open to all visitors, including classified advertisements, such as birth and funeral notices, and recommended articles featuring local businesses and sponsored content.
Website visitors can also sign up to have a free newsletter emailed regularly to their inbox, making it easier to browse the latest headlines and see what’s making news in Northern Tasmania.
“For $3.75 a week we believe you get a lot of value, but you’ll also be investing in driving the continual progress of Northern Tasmania,” Ms Greisbach said.
