The New York Times newspaper has announced a new lineup of special digited services, collectively dubbed 'NYT Now.' The NYT Now project was announced by New York Times editors at SXSW 2014.
NYT Now will offer a range of articles from the New York Times as well as other news websites. It will include morning and evening briefings summarizing the news.
A team of more than ten editors will select content for NYT now, which will contain the best samples from the newspaper. It is targeted towards people who are interested in the news and want to remain in the loop, but don't have the time or inclination to leaf through the entire physical newspaper.
Existing subscribers to New York Times' digital content will not have to pay up for the app, but new subscribers will have to pay $8 a month.
