Weekly Subscription News: Ads, Apps and American Journalism

Featuring The Guardian, Netflix, Facebook and Black News Channel

In this week’s subscription news, The Guardian’s online readers contribute more to the new organization than print readers, and Netflix’s ad-supported tier will not offer all Netflix shows to lower-priced subscribers. Facebook makes major changes to look more like TikTok, while putting news on the back burner, and the American Journalism Project invests $3.5 million in three local, nonprofit news organizations.
