Most Popular Subscription News Websites in the World

Discover what are the most popular subscription news websites in the world and how many subscribers per month each have: The New York Times number of subscribers is 6,100,000, The Washington Post number of subscribers is 3,000,000, The Wall Street Journal number of subscribers is 2,400,000 and more.

Two dozen English-language news publishers and publications have collected 100,000 or more digital-only subscriptions, new research by Press Gazette has found.

Between them, the 24 news brands share more than 20m online subscriptions, a number that has been boosted significantly since the start of the Covid-19 crisis.

US giants the New York Times (6,100,000), Washington Post (3,000,000) and Wall Street Journal (2,400,000) lead the way in our 100k Club league table.

We also today exclusively reveal new figures for the Financial Times, the Guardian, Barron’s, McClatchy, the Los Angeles Times and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which has emerged as a digital leader among traditional US metropolitan daily newspapers.

Prices of subscriptions to the 24 publications and publishers vary from $1.99 a month for National Geographic to £75 ($100) a month for Dow Jones specialist title Financial News.

In all, Press Gazette’s calculations suggest that if all subscriptions were paid at full rate, they would be worth around $5.7bn (£4.2bn) a year to the publishers.

One of the major challenges for these news companies now is to convince their online readers – many of whom will have signed up at subsidized rates or at the peak of their interest in Covid-19 news – to continue paying for their subscriptions at pricier rates in the future.
