1 Million Subscriptions: Telegraph Media Group sets a record for its subscription-first business

14 August 2023

Telegraph Media Group (TMG) has set a record for its subscription-first business and now has one million subscriptions. 

In 2018, TMG set out a bold vision to become a subscription-first business with the goal to reach one million subscriptions by 2023. Of our first million subscriptions, more than 700k of these are digital. Our subscriber engagement is at a record high, with circa 300k of our subscribers now using our app each day. Our Q3 subscription figures, independently verified by PwC, will be released in October and reflect this milestone.

TMG’s strategy has enabled ongoing investment in our agenda-setting journalism, publishing capabilities and reader experience. There are now many ways readers can engage with our journalism: via the newspaper and website, the app and newsletters, liveblogs, podcasts, video and social media. These ongoing investments will ensure our journalism continues to succeed and be valued across the world. 

Nick Hugh, CEO of Telegraph Media Group, said: “We set an ambitious goal for ourselves in 2018 and I am thrilled we have surpassed this milestone. As we look to the future, we will continue to grow our subscriptions, develop our subscriber community and set new records for the Telegraph.”
