A new digital service from The New York Times is making it easier for K–12 students to access to one of the most respected news sources in the world.
The Times announced an in-school digital subscription model for K–12 schools on Nov. 6. The service allows students to access NYTimes.com on the web through any device without a login, so long as they connect through their school's network. Pricing options for schools were not disclosed by the news release.
The Times began offering the digital model to select schools in the U.S. over the summer. The recent announcement opens the doors to the service worldwide.
“With this new in-school offering available at affordable rates, schools can access even more news, opinion and analysis from The New York Times on any device, in addition to the award-winning video, photography and infographics only available on NYTimes.com," said Yasmin Namini, senior vice president, chief consumer officer of The Times in a news release.
Subscribers to the service can also access The Times' archive. However, article access is limited to those published between 1851-1922 and 1981 to the present.
