The New York Times Raises Prices

While most print newspapers are begging readers to continue their subscriptions and are finding it very difficult to compete with online media sources, The New York Times is using a different tactic.

In recent news, the Times has gone up in price by 50 cents, moving from $2.00 for the Monday through Saturday editions to $2.50. The large Sunday edition will remain the same price as it’s been – $5 for New York residents and $6 in the rest of the country.

Interestingly enough, they haven’t changed the cost of the digital subscriptions. The home delivery price has also moved up by 4%. This is the first time in more than two years that the newspaper has increased its price – and they have declined to comment on the change or the reasons behind it.
