From The Blade
Beginning (Nov. 27) all current Blade subscribers will become All Access members with continued free unlimited access to news and features on all of the newspaper’s Web sites including toledoblade.com, on smartphones and tablets, and on an all-new and enhanced eBlade at eBlade.toledoblade.com.
For nonsubscribers, The Blade is establishing a fee to access content on its digital platforms, with nonsubscribers allowed to to read up to 20 articles a month at no charge.
For nonsubscribers who reach the 20-story monthly limit on toledoblade.com, a digital subscription will cost $5.99 for the first six months and $5.99 each month after that.
“We have taken this step to strengthen our relationship with our home delivery customers and add value to their subscriptions,” according to a statement from The Blade’s circulation department. “This will help us continue to fund award-winning journalism and provide resources for new digital and print products.”
A digital-plus subscription, which includes home delivery of the Sunday paper, will cost $4.99 for the first six months and $4.99 a month thereafter.
The Blade’s app for mobile devices will remain free.
