(NEW YORK) -- Rupert Murdoch announced the launch of News Corp’s iPad daily newspaper The Daily at an event in New York Wednesday morning.
The new multimedia service is available in the Apple iTunes store for people who already have iPads.
According to the announcement, Verizon has sponsored the 99-cent weekly subscription costs for the first two weeks. Beyond that initial period, users will pay 99 cents per week or an annual subscription of $39.99.
They don’t have a version for Android- or Windows-based tablet computers and users on the web will see redacted content without a pay-wall.
