We hope you have had a fantastic week! As always, we’ve had fun finding the latest subscription news to share with you. This week, New Statesman reports that its digital subscriptions have grown by 75% in a single year, The New York Times is a testing digital subscriptions for kids, and Walmart+ is gaining some traction.

Also, Google is paying publishers for news in the U.K., SiriusXM will give 1 million customers lifetime subscriptions in a settlement, and Alden is in talks to buy Tribune Publishing. Raise your hand if you didn’t see that one coming. Anyone?
