And we answer the common questions we've had since launching Premium.
1. Do print subscribers have access to Premium?
Our five-, six- and seven-day NZ Herald and regional newspaper subscribers have automatic, free access to Premium. Those with weekend or part-week newspaper subscriptions receive a discount.
Print subscribers have received emails explaining how to activate their subscription.
2. How do I find Premium stories?
While much of our journalism, including breaking and "commodity" news, will remain free on nzherald.co.nz, you'll be able to easily recognise a Premium story - it's tagged with a gold "Premium" label.
As well as the Premium articles highlighted on our nzherald.co.nz homepage, here's some easy bookmarks to delve into the brilliant range of articles:
Premium articles will also feature heavily on the homepages of our business, politics, news, world, sport, lifestyle and entertainment sections and on each of our five regional newspaper websites - the Northern Advocate, Bay of Plenty Times, Rotorua Daily Post, Whanganui Chronicle, and Hawke's Bay Today.
Once you've signed up as a subscriber, you can also receive the best news and business Premium content in your inbox each day - simply by going into your settings on the website, and ticking the Premium newsletters box.
3. Why have we launched Premium?
It's no secret that the media industry, the world over, is facing headwinds. It's no different in New Zealand.
Digital subscriptions open a new revenue stream for us to help fund the future of quality journalism.
While the majority of the content on nzherald.co.nz will remain free - this is critical as we also support a mass-market model for our readers and advertisers - we believe it is important that we place a stake in the ground to help support the very best, unique and exclusive journalism.
It's not cheap to fund quality journalism - it takes time, resource and effort to expose the truth, make a difference and fight for the public. Your digital subscription will help fund our newsrooms well into the future, just as our loyal print subscribers have done for the past century (and in the case of the NZ Herald, for the past 156 years).
If you have signed up already, welcome again. And thank you.
