Singapore's Malay-language daily Berita Harian (BH)has introduced an all-in-one price package for its print, online, smartphone and tablet platforms. This comes after a month-long free trial of its new smartphone and tablet apps, as well as a revamped website BeritaHarian.sg.
The BH package offers the print, online, iPad, smartphone and HTML5 versions at $18.99 a month. There is also a delivery fee of $3 to $5 depending on the subscriber's type of residence.

Mr Patrick Daniel, Editor-in-Chief of English and Malay Newspapers at the Singapore Press Holdings said: "The Berita Harian's editions follow the successful rolling out of The Straits Times and The Business Times' multi-platform paid editions. I hope that our Malay readers will enjoy the new BH digital offerings."
Subscribers will get access to the full daily BH and other premium content along with a seven-day archive of BH issues on the digital platforms. Daily news summaries and real-time breaking news remain free.
BH is offering free access to its premium content till Jan 21 with the registration of an online account. Users must register on or before Jan 13 to qualify for this.
