Upstart Sony E-Reader to Offer ‘Wall St. Journal,’ ‘N.Y. Post’ Subs

Sony said Thursday that it will offer subscriptions to The Wall Street Journal and New York Post on its new electronic reader. In addition, Sony will offer a daily summary of news for owners of the e-reader. Sony will be the exclusive seller of the Post’s digital edition, which is expected to launch in January. The move by the two News Corp.-owned newspapers underscores the rising competition to Amazon’s Kindle device, which has dominated the market for newspaper and magazine subscriptions on e-readers. The Journal also offers subscriptions through the Kindle. Sony said the Journal will cost USD 14.99 a month for its digital edition. A subscription to MarketWatch news and columns will cost USD 10.99 a month. The Post subscription will cost USD 9.99 a month.
