New YorkTimes.com, a news organization with offices in more than 130 countries, is launching a new digital media service in 2016.
NYT3 is an all-new digital news platform that will be based on the company’s existing NYT mobile app.
NYT will begin offering its NYT3 app for iOS and Android devices on April 25, according to a tweet from the NYT3 Twitter account.
NYT has already begun selling NYT3 to Apple and Microsoft for a total of $100 million.
NYT is offering the NYT 3 for free on all of its platforms, but users must pay $15 for the app on all platforms, according, to the NYT.
“We believe that a lot of our readers have a desire to get the NYT app on more platforms, so we’ve decided to go free for a while,” said NYT President of Editorial Services Mark Treadway.
“The app will continue to grow with us, so there’s no need to pay to get it.”
NYT3 will offer news, entertainment, business, lifestyle, travel and health and wellness content across the web, according the NYT’s announcement.
NYT4 will be a new subscription service, according a NYT blog post.
The NYT4 subscription will include access to news, music, sports, travel, fashion and more.
“With the new launch, we’re bringing a lot more than just the NYT apps to subscribers,” Treadways said.
“It will be the first time a subscription platform for NYT has been launched.
We are committed to delivering a wide array of news, events and information across our platforms, and we’re excited to continue delivering news, content and entertainment to our subscribers.”
The NYT will also launch an iPad app, which will be similar to the iOS app but will feature a subscription-based price.
“You’ll be able to subscribe for just $5 a month for our NYT4 app or you can upgrade for just a few bucks a month,” Treads said.
The company is also making plans to open an app store for NYT4.
“As the first app to feature all of the NYT content and apps, NYT4 gives subscribers a truly personalized experience.
It will allow NYT4 subscribers to discover what’s happening across the NYT and read articles by NYT writers on a variety of platforms,” the NYT said.
NYT and The Eagle will also have an exclusive partnership on the NYT4 mobile app for more than a year, according Treadweks announcement.
“In 2020, we are launching an exclusive collaboration with The Eagle, the most respected, respected media company in the world,” Treading said.
