On 26 Feb, SPH owned Straits Times (ST) revamped its site, including a new label—ST Premium.
It is labelled on selected articles and according to the site, it includes exclusive stories, interviews and features, first-hand reporting from their correspondents in bureaus in Asia and around the world, engaging video and visuals and in-depth opinion pieces.
It is also mentioned that we will still have access to local and international breaking news.
Now, why am I talking about this again?
Well, TODAY newspaper which is owned by MediaCorp threw shade at ST.
TODAY posted an FB post 12 hours ago, as of writing time, promoting their newsletter, website and Whatsapp service where you will receive breaking stories in a bite-sized format.
While doing that, they managed to subtly burn ST by saying “with TODAY, you never have to worry about paying more or limiting yourself to “non-premium” articles.”
Coming from someone who has mastered the art of shading people, this subtle dig demands 10 points for Gryffindor!
Is this the beginning of a new war between mainstream media?
With that said, the subscription fees for ST premium isn’t that expensive at all—their most expensive plan is only $29.90 a month.
