The Straits Times - Straits Times Interactive

Straits Times Interactive

Launched on 1 January 1994, The Straits Times Interactive was free of charge and granted access to all the sections and articles found in the print edition. On 1 January 2005, the online version began requiring registration and after a short period became a paid-access-only site. Currently, only people who subscribe to the online edition can read all the articles on the Internet, including the frequently-updated "Latest News" section.

A free section, featuring a selection of news stories, is currently available at the site. Regular podcast, vodcast and twice-daily—mid-day and evening updates—radio-news bulletins are also available for free online.

The Straits Times's decision to make its online edition almost entirely subscription-funded is in contrast to other traditional newspapers online editions, which often charge only for certain sections, such as archives, or for digital editions.

Famous quotes containing the words straits and/or times:

    Yes! in sea of life enisled,
    With echoing straits between us thrown,
    Dotting the shoreless watery wild,
    We mortal millions live alone.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    There are times when parenthood seems nothing but feeding the mouth that bites you.
    Peter De Vries (b. 1910)
