Online News

The advantages of receiving news directly on your computer or wireless device are becoming increasingly apparent and more popular every day. 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. A simple click can take you to past articles or pieces that relate to stories that you need more information about. Video clips of recent news stories can also bring a different perspective when one can view a particular story directly from the location that it has taken place in.
