Why subscribe?

POLITIK is the only New Zealand news website devoted exclusively to independent political journalism that is updated daily. POLITIK breaks stories and offers insights you won’t find anywhere else.

What do I get for my subscription?

You get full access to the site and its entire archive. And each weekday morning you get the POLITIKToday email with coverage of  the main news stories plus the kind of insider information you have to wait a week to get from newsletters like “Trans Tasman” .

How do I subscribe?

When you click onto a story you will see that it is blurred but that there is a box inviting you to subscribe. Just follow the steps there.

How much are subscriptions?

Subscriptions are $15.95 (Incl GST) per month or $132 (incl GST) for a year.

How do I log on

As you register you will confirm your username (which will be your email address and password) — that is all you need. The login box is on the top bar on the home page.You will get an email with details once you have subscribed.

My login is not working

Then you may need to reset your password.

Do this by entering your email in the “sign in” box on the top menu bar.

That will then open up to show your login form. Fill in your email address, leave the Password line blank and click “forgot password”. 


Then the reset password block will appear — fill in your email address and you will get an email explaining what to do next.


If another box appears asking you to select a subscription,(see below)  Just close it and all will be well!
