An explanation of The Oklahoman’s ‘Full Access First’ stories on NewsOK

If you’ve visited NewsOK on a Sunday in the past month or so, you’ve probably seen a list of headlines that looks something like this:

That’s actually exactly what we had displayed in the middle column near the top of on Sunday. It featured five stories from Sunday’s Oklahoman — five stories that could not be read online unless the user was a  ‘Full Access Subscriber.”

What’s a Full Access Subscriber, you ask? Well, quite simply, it’s any subscriber to The Oklahoman — whether they are a print subscriber or a a subscriber to The Oklahoman‘s digital products. In the simplest terms, these five stories are exclusive to The Oklahoman‘s subscribers.

So it’s really another reason for our print subscribers to make sure they connect their account to their NewsOK registration profile. If you subscribe to The Oklahoman, there’s absolutely no reason not to connect your accounts. It’s free, and it opens the door to our online products for The Oklahoman. We have built some excellent digital experiences to complement your print subscription. And if your reading habits and lifestyle change completely, one of these digital products might even become your favorite.

If you don’t subscribe to The Oklahoman, don’t worry — NewsOK is free to use. But just know that on Sundays, you might see some headlines that you don’t have access to read. For those five stories, we are offering a one-day exclusive to our Full Access subscribers. It’s a benefit for them.

Note, however, that is truly a ‘one-day’ exclusive. On Monday, it’s back to normal. Those same stories — and plenty more — are  available to our NewsOK readers when the clock strikes midnight on Monday morning.
