Banner Graphic print subscribers get unlimited digital access

Monday, January 23, 2012

Subscriptions to the printed Banner Graphic will include unlimited access to content across digital platforms, publisher Randy List announced today. This new initiative will go live Wednesday, Jan. 25.

List details the business decision in a column that appears here. List said that a new technology platform developed in-house will allow integration with the newspaper's current subscription system.

List also announced that the newspaper site would be optimized for smart phones as well as other mobile products that will also be included in the print subscription.

"In other words," List said, "subscribing to the print newspaper, which includes many features unavailable online -- like coupons, pre-print inserts, comic strips, nationally syndicated columnists and much more -- just became more valuable."

Non-print subscribers will have the option of paying for an online premium subscription, which will allow them full digital access.

If you aren't a Banner Graphic subscriber or don't subscribe to the newspaper's website, you will be limited to the number of free "premium" content views such as news stories, blogs and records.

On Wednesday, Jan. 25, you will be able to register on the new system or get additional information by going to or calling 1-800-444-4812.

  • It's been free all these years to read the news paper online now this is happening. Why?

  • I guess one must decide if the content is worth paying for a, premium subscription. With this said, what say you Greencastle?

  • I have tried hard to follow the instructions to get on your new digital access. It doesn't work.

    Will the actual subscription area work any better?
