Which online newspaper allows you to see/read it as it is on paper, i.e page by page?

Asked by flo (7637 points ) July 4th, 2014

Instead of the searching whatever you are interested, you want to see only the front page of all the newspapers, every day, to compare what newspaper considers which items most important kind of thing. That is just for example.

The New York Times is set up like that, just like the front page. The San Francisco Chronicle has an e-edition that way too, but you have to be a regular subscriber to have access to it that way; same with the Washington Post.

@zenvelo: When I look at the NY Times online, it doesn’t look like the printed edition at all.

I’m a subscriber to the Times, i didn’t realize I get a different website page than the general access website.

The Chicago Tribune has what it calls its DigitalCopy, a facsimile of the paper edition, including all the advertising.

Its available to subscribers. I get the Sunday paper delivered, and I get access to the online edition seven days a week.

@zenvelo: I use my father’s log on, so I get the same view that a subscriber does.

The New Yorker magazine online looks just like the magazine on paper.

@zenvelo: I looked at the NY Times site yesterday and see at the top, there’s a way to click on the view and change it to the printed version. Yaaay! If it wasn’t for reading this here, I’d never have found that!

@jaytkay
Thanks.

’’...and see at the top, there‚Äôs a way to click on the view and change it to the printed version.
by @jca. What is the way. The question mark key isn’t working with anything.

And I see ‘this’ one doesn’t look like look the printed edition.

@flo: When you subscribe to The New Yorker, there’s whole separate site where you can see the current edition and every edition going back to the beginning of the magazine’s publishing, in an online version that looks just like the printed – click to turn the page.

@jca Okay only when you subscribe you can see it, thanks. What if you are trying to shop around then decide which newspaper or magazine to subscrbe to? I suppose they have a grace period?

Usually they have where if you are not happy, you cancel your subscription for money back and get the remainder of the subscription money back.
