PRINT AND DIGITAL IN 2019 AND BEYOND
Now into our 62nd season of publishing, The Curling News also into its fifth year of offering a dynamic digital product. Now subscribers have two subscription options.
Our now-traditional print-plus-digital subscribers receive all six monthly issues in print format as they have since 1957. These subscribers also receive an email message each month directing them to an expanded, enhanced online version of that issue, packed full of extra pages plus enhancements (clickable content) in the editorial and advertising content from the print edition.
Click on a portion of a story, and it might launch a webpage that continues the discussion. A different clickable portion might launch a graph or a chart.
Click on a photograph, and it might launch a photo gallery of additional images.
Click on an advertisement, and it might launch a video, and/or a direct email response message.
Each story is also available in large typeface, without graphics, for easy reading.
Each story and page is also printable.
Moreover, these subscribers now also receive a new, seventh edition of The Curling News – entitled May – that is released solely in digital format and will fully wrap the season, long after 99% of the curling facilities have shut down for the summer.
Also new this year is a second subscription option: Digital Only. Now subscribers can receive all seven enhanced and expanded digital editions each month – for a reduced rate.
“The introduction of a digital-only product is a natural evolution, as the world of curling becomes increasingly affected by technological advances,” said George Karrys, owner and publisher of The Curling News since 2003.
“The launch of The Curling News digital subscriber editions five years ago marked the end of a lengthy period of research, investigation and preparation. And we knew this day was coming, when our readers can finally pick and choose between the classic print newspaper and the fully digitized modern reader experience.
This is what the curling world has been asking for. Curling fans of all ages are now online, journeying through a digital world. At The Curling News, we are pleased to be able to offer these enhanced and expanded content services.”
Each digital issue of The Curling News is packed with hard news stories, features, stunning visuals and extra content pages full of vibrant hyperlinks. This is the content curling fans simply cannot find anywhere else.
NOTE: Each issue’s subscriber log-in name and password access is provided by an email notification; therefore new and current subscribers alike should ensure that we have your email address on file.
