All-In-One the top choice for many ST subscribers

Many new and renewing subscribers of The Straits Times, who have families of five or more members, are choosing the newspaper's All-In-One (AIO) package.

This package comprises both print and online editions of The Straits Times, and is also available on digital platforms such as smartphones and tablets.

Dr Edmond Phua, 31, took up a new subscription during Singapore Press Holdings' ongoing subscription drive. He said he chose the AIO package as it was convenient for his family of eight.

"My parents prefer the hard copy while the rest of us prefer the digital version," he said.

The Paya Lebar resident said he reads Top Of The News the most.
