This year The New Yorker celebrates their 90th year of publication. With this celebration, comes the launch of a new website with mobile enhancements, and a free subscription to readers. Offering “fifteen original stories a day” for readers the New Yorker is flexing it’s digital wings.
The subscription will be free until the end of summer when readers and subscribers will be offered the opportunity to continue reading via subscription either print, digital or both.
From The New Yorker:
“Beginning this week, (7/28/14) absolutely everything new that we publish—the work in the print magazine and the work published online only—will be unlocked. All of it, for everyone. Call it a summer-long free-for-all. Non-subscribers will get a chance to explore The New Yorker fully and freely, just as subscribers always have. Then, in the fall, we move to a second phase, implementing an easier-to-use, logical, metered paywall. Subscribers will continue to have access to everything; non-subscribers will be able to read a limited number of pieces—and then it’s up to them to subscribe. You’ve likely seen this system elsewhere—at the Times, for instance—and we will do all we can to make it work seamlessly.”

In the fall, the magazine will return to a limited access website, giving only subscribers full access with the implementation of a new paywall.
