A Paid Subscription With 7 Days Free

La Vanguardia Digital has a new look and a new business model as of last Saturday (February 1). The newspaper, which has completely redesigned its website, has switched to a paid-subscription offer. All content will be free for seven days after its publication, although it requires the reader to be registered. After one week of being online, it will be available only for a fee. Paid subscribers will have access to: all content online, the PDF version of the print version, and e-mail newsletters, among other things. To these services, already known by the readers, La Vanguardia Digital offers access to its historic archive in PDF format. This means that there is now access online to one of the most reputable libraries of news in Spain, dating back to 1881. Print subscribers will have free access to all of this. (Disclosure: I have been a contributor to La Vanguardia Digital since 1999; I write a column called The Fourth Bit.)
