Kindle Offers Times And FT

The Times and the Financial Times (FT) are the latest newspapers to make their content available on Kindle.

Owners of the digital reader from Amazon can now subscribe to receive The Times for $14.99 (£8.18) per month and the FT for $9.99 (£5.45) per month.

The latest editions are automatically uploaded each morning to the Kindle using Amazon Whispernet technology.

“We see the digital distribution of the newspaper as a vital part of our strategy and it’s crucial that we offer customers the flexibility to access our award-winning journalism through as many channels as possible,” commented Greg Zorthian, global circulation director at the FT.

Not yet on sale in the UK, the wireless device now offers a total of nine international newspaper subscriptions to its users.

Already available from the UK is The Independent while the Shanghai Daily and France’s Le Monde also have Kindle editions.
