Telegraph Media Group has hit its target of reaching one million subscriptions before the end of 2023.
It has become the third UK national newspaper company to reach a major one million milestone, after The Guardian and Financial Times which reached a million paying readers online in December 2021 and March 2022 respectively.
TMG, which publishes The Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, said that more than 70% of the one million subscriptions are digital and that “subscriber engagement is at a record high, with circa 300,000 of our subscribers now using our app each day”.
TMG said the figures are being independently audited by consultancy PwC and will be formally released in October.
Chief executive Nick Hugh 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.”
