You can cancel your subscription at any time. When you cancel, we will stop charging your account the following billing cycle, which is four weeks, so your unlimited access will continue for the remainder of the current four-week period.
5. Can I see content if I’m not a digital subscriber?
Yes, the count of page views remaining for the month is included directly on the page of the article. It is a model in place at a majority of country’s newspapers. Your free, limited access resets at the beginning of each calendar month. Increasingly, digital revenue is becoming an important part to pay for the cost of creating content and covering news events. Non-subscribers also can earn views by providing their email address to receive the Herald’s daily email and a new weekly newsletter that will premiere in early 2019. During times of emergency, content becomes free.
