Times Observer all-access will debut March 13

The Times Observer is adding new ways to read the newspaper daily; every page, every day, every where.

For generations, The Times Observer has delivered valuable news and information to its readers throughout Warren County.

The Times Observer has been an integral part of life in the region, delivering news from your neighborhood and beyond directly to your door. But as technology improves, so do newspapers.

More than a decade ago, The Times Observer began delivering an internet version to online readers. In 2012, we added a mobile version to allow readers to access the newspaper on devices such as iPhones and android phones.

The Times Observer has long provided readers with comprehensive coverage of local news, sports, opinions, news of record and other information important to the people around Warren County.

Neither the Times Observer website nor the mobile app is an exact copy of the printed version. Beginning on March 13, you will be able to read the entire newspaper, online, every day. Every page, every story, every advertisement, now will be available to our subscribers electronically regardless of where you are located.

The all access version of The Times Observer will download to your phone, tablet or computer in a few seconds and allow you to read the newspaper the same way you would if you were holding the printed edition in your hands.

All current print newspaper subscribers who get the paper delivered each morning now will also have all access to the e-edition and www.timesobserver.com, allowing them to read a digital version of the newspaper directly on their computer, tablet or smart phone, as part of their subscription.

After the electronic edition is launched subscribers will only need to answer a few questions to link your digital account to your paper subscription information. Subscribers will then be able to access both the website and electronic version of the newspaper.

Readers who do not wish to get the printed version of the newspaper can opt for a digital-only subscription to deliver both the web and digital edition to them for one low cost.

The digital version will be an exact copy of the newspaper that has been delivered to area homes for generations. Readers will be able to scan the headlines, read the stories and even “clip” stories to be viewed later.

Non-subscribers will be able to view the beginning of each story.

The all access edition can be downloaded to a computer by going to www.timesobserver.com/allaccess as well as a tablet or smart phone via an easy-to-download app.

The quick download will feature every story, photo, advertisement and classified found in the print edition and will become available at the same time the newspaper is being printed.

Newspapers, including The Times Observer, continue to evolve to meet the information needs of a changing base of readers and users of the latest technology. Reading the news electronically is a valuable part of many people’s day. With the addition of the all access version of the newspaper, that value is intensified.

“The addition of an all access edition as well as a subscription-based website will allow The Times Observer to serve our readers in whatever format they are most comfortable reading the newspaper,” said Publisher Bob Patchen. “It’s an exciting time to be in the publishing industry.”
