AdNews opens up greater access to website content

We noticed a few months ago a small but significant change to the AdNews website. Given this has not been publicised we thought it would be worth posting: All registered users for AdNews emails appear to be able to access full stories inside their site simply by clicking links from within the AdNews daily email bulletin. This is a neat bypass to the paid subscription required for the same stories on the website. 

Most people visiting the AdNews website in the past will know that content has been inaccessible for non-subscribers including registered users (you had to have a physical subscription, or repeatedly register for limited access to view the content). The email subscription seems to be a valid workaround.

Another interesting point is that the email link url contains the word BETA would usually indicate other changes in development. We did hear a rumour that posts on their site would be open for comments soon. Perhaps if AdNews read this they could post a comment here and let us know 😉

AdNews email registration can be found here.

You can finally get into Adnews content by signing up for email.

Update: I called AdNews about the post and they confirmed it is a legitimate way to access their content.

    Interesting to read your point on perhaps being able to comment on AdNews stories shortly also – B&T articles went commentable a few weeks ago too.

    Cheers,
