Microsoft has announced that the New York Times has made their app on Windows and Windows Phone devices free for a limited time, with an included 30-day subscription to the popular daily newspaper. Users with any Windows device, including Windows 8, Windows Phone and Surface tablets, may download the app from the Windows Store and start browsing. From Microsoft's official blog, TechNet:
"Here’s how it works: Users must officially subscribe, including providing credit card information, to receive the free trial. The subscription will automatically renew after 30 days – so users must proactively cancel their subscription to avoid being charged if they decide they don’t want to continue with the subscription."
According to Microsoft, the subscription includes access to everything the New York Times offers, including newspaper articles, and special features such as the New York Times Sunday magazine and the Sunday Book Review.
This news surely means plenty of forthcoming deals, features and announcements for Microsoft as they ramp up into 2014 -- including app deals, and major software updates for most Microsoft products. In addition, fans have something mysterious to look forward to, as it was recently revealed that Microsoft had filed for trademarks revolving around the word "Mod" for forthcoming products/features.
