To Cambrian Readers: Changes to Our Online Access

December 2, 2011 

To Our Readers:

Newspaper websites around the country have begun charging readers to access their websites during the last couple of years. Beginning December 5, The Tribune will do so as well.

Some portions of our site, like the Homepage, our section fronts (the “front” page of the The Cambrian, News, Sports, Opinion, Living, Entertainment, and other sections of the site), Classifieds sections (Apartments, Cars, Homes, Jobs, Obits), Dealsaver and all advertising will remain fully accessible, which means you’ll continue to have unlimited access to those pages. But the article pages and the ability to comment will have limited access.

So when, for example, you click on a headline in The Cambrian section and select a story, that page counts towards a limit of 15 pages per 30-day period. Once you reach your 15-page limit, if you don’t have a digital subscription, you’ll be required to start a digital subscription or wait until the next 30-day period to access these story pages.

Introductory pricing for the digital subscription starts at $0.99. Details about subscription packages and pricing are available at www.sanluisobispo.com/plus With a digital subscription, you will have unlimited access to SanLuisObispo.com. You will also have access to The Tribune’s electronic replica edition, available on multiple devices, and various smartphone applications.

For questions, please call our toll-free customer service number at 1-800-288-4128 or read the FAQs on www.sanluisobispo.com/plus.
