Following recent reports of possible Guardian plans to launch a paid-for members’ club, an interesting development in the US: the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has launched PG+, an exclusive area for paying subscribers.
Access to the club will cost $36 for a year or $3.99 a month.
The members-only website will offer interactive features and exclusive content beyond the title’s newspaper and web editions.
It will run alongside the existing website and give ‘behind-the-scenes insights into the news of the day’.
The new site will be hosted by a team of bloggers and allow users to build their own profile pages. Membership will also grant access to specially organised P-G events.
