New York Times and Financial Times expand digital access program to international hotels
NEW YORK, NY – June 20, 2016 – The New York Times and Financial Times today announced that international hotels in select markets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East can now participate in their digital access program that allows participating hotels to provide their guests with unlimited access to NYTimes.com and FT.com on any device connected to the hotel’s network.
Last year The New York Times and Financial Times began offering U.S. hotels the chance to purchase their own branded web portal that provides guests free entry into both NYTimes.com and FT.com. Participating hotels receive keycards they can give guests that explain how to access both sites.
Guests staying at hotels with this program receive free unlimited access to high quality journalism on NYTimes.com including articles, video, interactives and slideshows. Readers will also have access to FT.com, including its world-class coverage of business, international news, comment, data and analysis for the global business community.
NYTimes.com and FT.com normally require paid digital subscriptions for full access. NYTimes.com has a 10 article a month limit for non-subscribers.
The digital access program will be available to hotels located in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, France, Germany, Russia, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Portugal at launch.
