The weekday version of the Daily Star will cost 20p to 30p, the Saturday edition will cost 30p to 40p, and the Sunday edition will cost 50p to 90p. There are eight pages in each issue, plus a centre spread with large-scale pictures.
The newspaper has its origins in the Manchester Star, which was first published on 16 February 1842. It was founded by Joseph Dixon, who also created the first mass-produced steel engraving process. The Star was an afternoon paper, selling for 1d (10p today).
In 1870, the price of the paper rose to 5d (50p today). In 1890, it became a morning paper and remained so until 1996, when it began publishing in the evening too. It now publishes seven days a week.
The Daily Star is one of the most popular newspapers in England with a daily readership of more than 960,000 people. It is known for its clear writing, distinctive style, and attention to detail. The newspaper's editorial stance tends to be left of centre. It has been described as "the best read newspaper in Britain".
Issues can be bought from newsagents or directly from the newspaper itself.
The newspaper The Daily Telegraph Saturday will increase by 30p to PS2.80 from February 1, The Sunday Telegraph will increase by 30p to PS2.50, while the weekday Daily Telegraph will increase by 50p to PS2.50. All prices include VAT.
In November 2016, the paper's daily price was increased for the first time in nearly five years, by 10p, or 20%, depending on the region of the country. This was due to a new deal with Google that meant that if readers clicked through from Google searches to Telegraph websites, they would be directed to the digital edition of the paper, which is free to read. Other news outlets that have similar pay-wall arrangements with Google are not subject to this increase.
Telegraph Media Group CEO Tim Seldes said at the time of the announcement: "We know our readers value quality journalism and innovative technology, so we're pleased to be able to extend access to this award-winning brand."
The Daily Telegraph has won several awards including Newspaper of the Year at the British Press Awards two years running (2015-16). It was also voted Best Regional Daily in America by readers of USA Today.
It has been estimated that about 120,000 people in Britain miss out on reading the Daily Telegraph because it is too expensive.
The price of the Saturday edition of the Daily Telegraph will rise by 20p on February 5, but the publisher will defer the increased retail margin for six months. The NFRN reports that copies in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will be upgraded to PS3 this weekend.
The paper's circulation has been falling for several years, as readers switch to online news sources. In November 2012, it was reported that print sales were down by nearly 10% compared with the previous year. Around the same time, the paper's owner, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, announced plans to cut 15% of its global workforce. News UK, which includes the Telegraph's parent company, said the cuts would affect around 600 people worldwide.
In September 2013, it was reported that newspaper sales were down again. This time they fell by more than 6%. It was also revealed that the Telegraph had lost money every month since it started printing the magazine version two years ago. The publication cost around £150,000 per issue at that time.
Now, it appears the price increase has been delayed until February 5th. If you order your copy of the Saturday Telegraph before then, you will know what price it will be when you go to pick it up. Otherwise, you will have to wait and see if the paper raises its price or not.
On September 19, the price of the Saturday edition of the Toronto Star will increase from $3 to $3.50. The Star also provides free news on its website and tablet app, Star Touch. 13 million people in Canada's largest city read the Star every week.
The newspaper is published each Saturday by Torstar Corporation, which also publishes the Toronto Sun and several other regional newspapers across Ontario. The Star was founded in 1856 by George Brown who bought out his partners death the following year at the age of 39. It has been owned by the Thomson family since 1969.
The Toronto Star is one of the oldest newspapers in North America and is known for its editorial stance and strong opinions of its authors. The paper has a circulation of 710,000 copies per day and is best known for its national reputation as an authoritative source of news.
George Brown established the first printing office in Toronto on Church Street just north of Yorkville Avenue. Today this area is known as Newspaper Hill because of all the media outlets that have been located there over the years. The Star prints 16 pages per hour when running off its own press and uses lithography for most of its photographs. Its average page length is 830 words.
The Sunday Times will cost 20p extra starting Sunday, July 7, according to News UK, but retailer margins will remain at 21 percent. The price increase from PS2.70 to PS2.90 is expected to generate an extra PS5.6m in cash for retailers each year. Retailers who sell the paper will now get 60.9p each copy sold.
