Philly Papers do digital delivery RIGHT

Newspaper sales have been going down for years for 3 main reasons: 1) younger people don’t read, 2) 24-hour news on TV, 3) the Internet.
I never understood why newspapers decided to allow access to their content over the Internet for free. Yet, many newspapers Internet sites only give you a portion of what’s in the paper version.
I’ve wondered why more of them wouldn’t offer a Internet subscription to view their entire paper online.
FINALLY, the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News has delivered that format.
A free trial period is offer until Feb 13 after which it will cost about $3 a week to access their paper via the Internet.
I love the new service. claims to be moving toward a ‘digital first’ format. Let’s see how long it will take for them to follow suit.
