At a cocktail-fueled meet and greet at SXSW, we met with New York Occasions editors Jill Abramson and Clifford Levy to debate the information group’s 2014 lineup of providers, together with a brand new enterprise dubbed NYT Now. Created as an iPhone (and iPod contact)-solely software, NYT Now’s the corporate’s newest subscription-based mostly product. On the floor, it seems to be merely a “lite” model of the paper’s day by day content material, however The Occasions is reassigning almost a dozen editors to Now full time to curate inner content material in addition to articles from third-celebration information orgs, comparable to Engadget. Now shouldn’t be with out its challenges, although. Full entry will run you $eight per 30 days, which, whereas a far cry from the $forty five you will fork over for a full digital subscription with Occasions Premier, continues to be a big quantity. You’ll obtain the app on April 2nd, with free entry to headlines, summaries and 10 articles every month. The $eight payment (billed each 4 weeks) will allow full entry to any article that seems within the NYT Now app.
