People Revamps Digital Subscription Options

Sep 10, 2013

A print subscription to People will no longer get you free web access, according to paidContent. The magazine launched new digital products - including one that costs $200 a year -- and though it has bundled digital access with print subscription in the past, new subscribers won't get that same perk. For $112 a year you can get a print subscriptions or the People Digital Plus package (which includes digital and tablet access as well as access to the CelebWatch and CelebFood apps). For $20 more you can add a print subscription to the Digital Plus package.

But then there's that $200 People V.I.P. package which will get you all the aforementioned products along with "three editorially curated gift boxes per year tied to People franchises and events, a six-month magazine gift subscription, and monthly chances to win all-inclusive trips to insider and red carpet events, and movie premieres."

Current print subscribers won't see any change until it comes time to re-subscribe.
