The Herald has today announced that it is introducing a number of changes to its website - which launched two years ago.

Herald & Times group digital editor, Calum Macdonald, informs existing subscribers to the website: “We've improved the Scottish politics section to reflect the importance of the big decisions facing our country in the years ahead. Look out for brand new commentators and a live TV feed of all the proceedings at the Scottish Parliament.

“In business, we'll meet some of the biggest (and smallest) names in the market, with video and quick-fire interviews.

“Rugby fans will applaud our extended reporting of their sport, with a new results service and an in-depth focus on teams across the country. Chris Cusiter, joint Scotland captain, will also be joining our Bloggers.

“And if that's not enough, keep an eye out for Privileges, our membership benefits, with a unique range of offers and events, including books, sport and leisure.”

Under the new set-up, registered users of will be able to read 10 articles for free every four weeks.

Macdonald, who was formerly news editor of The Herald, points out: “ However, we'd like you to try out the site, so we're giving you free unlimited access for 4 weeks.

“Since our launch just over two years ago, we have welcomed millions of visitors to the site and I am sure that the changes and upgrades we are introducing will add to your enjoyment of the site.”
