To Our Readers:
Soon we will begin providing another way to stay current with local, state and national-international news. In addition to our print edition and our online e-Edition, we will begin offering digital subscriptions to our award-winning website, Record-Eagle.com.
Our new Record-Eagle+ service will be introduced Feb. 1 and will provide readers with full access to the Record-Eagle's quality local journalism online.
With Record-Eagle+ we will once again begin posting complete stories on our website, a process that we've started today. Beginning Feb. 1, readers will be able to access 15 stories free of charge during a given 30-day period. If you exceed that limit, you will be asked to become a Record-Eagle+ digital subscriber.
Visitors to Record-Eagle.com will continue to receive completely free access to our homepage and other landing pages (those that contain lists of articles, such as our Region page), as well as to our latest news, obituary, weather, blogs, photo, video and calendar sections. All of our advertising areas, such as our classifieds and BizFinder yellow pages, will also remain completely free.
Purchasing a Record-Eagle+ digital subscription will allow you unlimited access to all complete articles on Record-Eagle.com, including our locally produced news, sports and feature stories, opinion content such as editorials and letters to the editor, as well as Michigan, national and world news from the Associated Press, and more.
The Record-Eagle will continue to offer subscriptions to our e-Edition, an online replica of the printed Record-Eagle. The e-Edition will remain the only way to experience the complete Record-Eagle print edition in an online format, including advertisements, comics, crossword puzzle and more. Because Record-Eagle.com's online-only content remains free and outside the 15-article-per-month limit, there is no need for e-Edition subscribers to also purchase the new Record-Eagle+ subscription.
For more information on our new Record-Eagle+ subscription, including how it works, the cost, what areas of site count against the 15-article limit and what areas don't, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
For more than 150 years, the Record-Eagle has been the main source of news for the northwestern Lower Michigan area. Through rapidly changing times, the Record-Eagle has stayed current with technology to make sure area residents have news available to them regardless of whether they enjoy print or digital delivery methods.
Six times in recent years the Record-Eagle has been named the best paper in Michigan in our circulation category. Record-Eagle+ is just one more way for our readers to connect with our award-winning coverage.
