What kind of subscription plans do you offer?
We have three types of subscriptions
- Premium which gives you access to either the India or the Southeast Asia edition.
- Borderless which gives you complete access to The Ken across both editions
- Echelon which gives you complete access to The Ken across both editions along with a bonus gift subscription
What do I get if I subscribe?
The Premium edition gives you access to stories in that edition along with any five subscriber-only newsletters of your choice.
The Borderless and Echelon subscription gives you complete access to The Ken across editions and unlimited access to as many newsletters as you like.
Can I upgrade to a higher plan?
Yes, you can upgrade to a higher plan while your current subscription is still active. Our system will automatically give you a discount against the remainder of your current subscription.
What will happen to my existing subscription if I upgrade?
You will get a discount equivalent to the time remaining in your current subscription.
What topics do you usually write about?
We publish sharp, original and reported stories on technology, business and healthcare. Our stories are forward-looking, analytical and directional — supported by data, visualisations and infographics. We use language and narrative that is accessible to even lay readers. And we optimise for quality over quantity, every single time.
Our specialised subscriber-only newsletters are written by our expert, award-winning journalists and cover a range of topics across finance, retail, clean energy, cryptocurrency, ed-tech and many more.
How many newsletters do you have?
We are constantly adding specialised subscriber-only newsletters all the time. All of these are written by our team of award-winning journalists on a specialised topic.
You can see the list of newsletters that we publish over here.
Does a Premium subscription to your Indian edition get me access to the Southeast Asia edition? Or vice-versa?
Afraid not. Each edition is separate with its own subscription plan. The India edition publishes stories focused on India. The Southeast Asia edition is focused on Southeast Asia. We may occasionally cross-publish stories from one edition to the other.
We recommend the Borderless or the Echelon Plan which will give you access to stories across both editions.
Do you have a mobile app?
Yes! We have a top-rated mobile app on both iOS and Android which allows you to read on-the-go and has some amazing features like the ability to bookmark stories, save on your device, dark mode, and much more. It’s really the best way to read The Ken.
Is there a free trial?
You can sign up for a free account to experience The Ken and understand our products better. We’ll send you some free stories and newsletters occasionally, and you can access our archive of previously published free stories. You can stay on the free account as long as you’d like.
The vast majority of our stories, articles and newsletters can be accessed only by a paid subscription.
Do you offer any discounts?
Sorry, no. Our journalism is funded completely by our subscribers. We believe that quality journalism comes at a price, and readers trust and pay us so that we can remain independent.
Do you offer refunds?
No. We allow you to sample our journalism for free before signing up, and after you do, we stand by its quality. But we do not offer refunds.
