Unlike hardcopy newspapers that are delivered to subscribers at specific times, online news is available to readers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Another crucial selling point is the ability to read about breaking news from around the world virtually as it happens. Many established and well respected newspapers also reap the financial benefits by cutting down on printing costs as more and more people subscribe to online news publications and websites.

They also offer users the unique opportunity to receive more in depth coverage about the people and stories behind current events.
