The Hope Standard introduces online subscriptions

Subscribers of print edition will have full access to website content at no additional charge

  • Apr. 19, 2012 6:00 a.m.

As of April 25, readers will need a subscription to enjoy full access to The Hope Standard‘s online content.

With this step, The Hope Standard joins scores of paid-circulation community newspapers in cities large and small across the country which are recognizing the value of local content.

Subscribers to our print edition will automatically have access to all online content at no additional charge. Readers will enjoy privileges that include the ability to forward stories via email or social media accounts, and participate in online discussions. Non-subscribers will still have free digital access to limited areas, such as provincial news, our website’s front page and section fronts, blogs, community calendar, classifieds and obituaries. And when breaking news happens locally, that too will be available to all site visitors at no charge.

On April 25, the first day for subscribers to activate their digital accounts, The Standard will publish details about the premium content plan and how it will work. Print subscribers can to hopestandard.com to sign up for digital access.

New clients can subscribe for an all-access package, which includes the print edition and premium online content. Readers who want to forgo the print edition, or who live outside The Standard‘s delivery area, will still be able to access digital-only premium content on a monthly or annual basis.
