The NYT to lower paywall starting at 5pm ET on the 14th through the 19th for the launch of International New York Times
The open access to digital news including iOS products is single-sponsored by Citi bank
NEW YORK – October 14, 2013 — The New York Times today announced that it will offer unlimited complimentary access to its digital readers on the Web and on iOS mobile apps from October 14 at 5pm ET until October 19 at 5pm ET to mark the launch of the International New York Times (INYT.com), previously called the International Herald Tribune. The open access is courtesy of Citi, a leading global bank.
Edited from Paris, London, Hong Kong and New York, the INYT will be tailored specifically for global audiences. Over the past year, The Times has built one news gathering operation by combining the journalist strengths and newsrooms of The New York Times and International Herald Tribune (IHT). Additionally, The Times has announced promotions and new hires on the international news and opinion desks.
The New York Times iPhone and iPad news apps will allow the user to choose between a U.S. or International Edition. On October 15th, the International Edition will be available to users of the most current iOS apps. The International Edition replaces the IHT app. INYT.com will be available on all devices via the mobile Web.
After the open access period expires on October 19, limits to nonsubscribers will apply. Nonsubscribers may access a combined total of 10 articles each month on INYT.com and NYTimes.com and three articles per day across all sections of the apps. A subscription is required for access beyond those limits.
International New York Times digital subscription plans are available at INYT.com/Access. For details and pricing on home delivery, visit Subscribe.INYT.com.
