Zaobao offers 2-day free access

Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao will celebrate National Day by offering two days of free and full access to its premium digital content and e-paper, such as those on zaobao.com.

Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) - which owns the paper - said yesterday that readers will be given unlimited access starting just after midnight today.

Access will end at 11.59pm tomorrow.

Among the features that readers can enjoy are Lianhe Zaobao's print-edition news stories, seven-day news archive and news stories scheduled for the next day.

They will not require a subscription to access the content.

"This is our gesture of appreciation to readers who have supported Lianhe Zaobao over the years," said Ms Han Yong May, digital editor of SPH's Chinese Media Group and Lianhe Zaobao's associate editor.

"It is also an opportunity for us to gather feedback from our readers and improve users' experience on Lianhe Zaobao's digital platforms."

The paper unveiled a new print and digital look last month in an effort to make its content more reader-friendly. Its app was also revamped. Those interested to sign up for Lianhe Zaobao's All-in-One subscription package or opt for a 14-day free trial can do so at www.zbsub.sg.
