The New York Times Company said that the total – reached four and a half years after the newspaper launched its pay model – is in addition to its 1.1 million print-and-digital subscribers.

President and CEO Mark Thompson said: “This is a major milestone for our digital consumer business, which we launched in 2011 and has continued a strong and steady growth trajectory. It puts us in a unique position among global news providers.

“We believe that no other news organisation has achieved digital subscriber numbers like ours or comparable digital subscription revenue.

“It’s a tribute to the hard work and innovation of our marketing, product and technology teams and the continued excellence of our journalism.”

Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr said The New York Times now has a “broader reach and wider impact” than at any point in its history.
