This new INMA report looks at 19 newsmedia companies that have priced and packaged bundled subscriptions and breaks down:

  • The cross-platform packages for each company: one brand, one bundle, many platforms.
     
  • How to bolster print home delivery with digital packages.
     
  • The wide variety of emerging bundled pricing schemes.
     
  • Early results and metrics of bundled subscription efforts.
     
  • Whether pricing encourages cohesive product packages or differentiating value packages across platforms.
