Two new UK newspapers for the Kindle; the Times and the Financial Times

This week two new newspapers make it onto the Kindle – they are both British newspapers. The Times, which I don’t know an awful lot about, and the Financial Times which I adore and consider to be one of the best newspapers in the world.

The Times was first published in 1785 and is now owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. The Financial Times has been in print since 1888 and its biggest competitor is The Wall Street Journal, while The Wall Street Journal has the higher subscription numbers, in my opinion the Financial Times has the superior content – I should know, Iv had it delivered to my home for the past four years.

The Times and the Financial Times bring the total numbers of newspapers on the Kindle to 24. Its been about 9 months since Kindle was released and I am a bit disappointed to see that only 24 newspapers have jumped onto the Kindle – 15 US based and 9 International newspapers. The USA Today currently has the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States with 2.25 million copies per weekday, however it has yet to make an appearance on the Kindle. We need more newspapers on the Kindle!

As usual, a 14-day free trial is available for both newspapers.

More Kindle newspapers added, bringing the total to 18 newspapers

There hasn’t been much news regarding newspapers on Kindle, but Amazon has been silently adding more newspapers since the last time we covered newspapers on BlogKindle.com.

In February there were 14 newspapers available to download onto the Kindle, they were:

  1. The New York Times
  2. The Wall Street Journal
  3. The Washington Post
  4. Investor’s Business Daily
  5. The Boston Globe
  6. San Francisco Chronicle
  7. San Jose Mercury News
  8. The Seattle Times
  9. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  10. Le Monde
  11. The Irish Times
  12. Frankfurter Allgemeine
  13. Les Echos
  14. The Philadelphia Inquirer

Since then, Amazon has added a further 5 newspaper titles:

  1. Shanghai Daily – $5.99/month
  2. The Independent – $14.99/month
  3. Le Monde – $14.99/month
  4. The Denver Post – $5.99/month
  5. Austin American-Statesman – $5.99/month

There are 2 US based newspapers, and 3 international newspapers – all of them come with the standard 14-day free trial. Shanghai Daily at $5.99/month is a bargain and might be the one that is most worth checking out, however the other 2 international papers are very expensively priced at $14.99/month. My wish of having the Financial Times hasn’t come into fruition just yet, I have no doubt that one day it will be available on the Kindle – just not any-time soon.
