Perhaps they are still deciding what they are going to do. You might want to send them an email and say you want the online version to continue. Of course I'm not sure what address to send it to. Possibly firstname.lastname@example.org
I am able to read the full version as I have a paid subscription. I just now sent them an email, asking if the free online version will resume or not. JD posted a ink to their facebook page the other day, for those that have Facebook. Personally, that is not nearly the same thing as even what they had before, so I hope they resume the prior form of the free online version. I will let folks here know if/when I hear back from them.
Actually, the LACK of advertising is what is driving up the price of print editions. Online subscription here is $90 for 1 year. Home delivery (which comes with online access) is over $40/mo or over $500/year. Some people still like to hold a newspaper or a book in their hands.
The $55 for 3 month price for the Daily Herald also included home delivery, assuming one is on the island. Based on this equalling $220 for a year of digital and home (SXM) delivery, it is a pretty decent deal IMHO.
I just heard back from the subscription department. They said they didn't know how long it would be until the website was back up. But it seems like it will hopefully be coming back, from what he said, as otherwise he would have said it is definitely NOT coming back. He said to look at Facebook for the time being.
