Serving Lebanon and the Middle East with unrivaled local journalism in a foreign language, the paper offered the world a local view and domestic expertise on a rapidly changing region that very rarely failed to feature on top of the news agenda. Despite interruptions during Lebanon’s Civil War, the newspaper returned to newsstands in the mid-1990s to reclaim its spot as the main source of Lebanon news in English. The technological revolution that erupted at the turn of the century changed the ways people are consuming information and following the news. First the Internet then social media presented challenges for newspapers worldwide. The Daily Star today is not only a newspaper. It has risen to the challenge and now offers its unique coverage of Lebanon and the region whenever and wherever you, the reader, want it. But this costs money and financial realities mean that we have to increase our revenue to be able to continue to provide you with the best, unbiased coverage of Lebanon. Therefore from July 10, 2015, we will be offering our worldwide readers complete access to our digital content for a monthly fee. This gives our subscribers: - Unlimited website access - Mobile news on in app on all iOS devices - Daily newsletters by email - Full archive access Readers who don’t wish to subscribe will be able to continue reading our wires-based content for free but will miss out on original news, business, lifestyle, opinion, sports, and arts and culture coverage from Lebanon and the region.

We appreciate your contribution towards helping us maintain our high standards and in return we renew our commitment to you to redouble our efforts and continue to produce the best news content out of Lebanon now and in the future.

    For a country famous for its huge number of expats, the only English newspaper requires a paywall for people who want to read it outside the country. Update: It got worse, you now got five scrolls of ads for every two sentences you read.

    15 dollars a month you have got to be kidding me. Someone needs to fired do you even have the demographics for such a price hike typical greedy Lebanese. You can't justify news at that price when your not a global name your what we call copy and paste news for at the most 1 dollar a month. You should've sold ad space and kept it free good luck with 100 subscribers. RIP TDS
  • Subscription too high

    I use to love this paper. I just can't afford the 15.00 a month. I would be will to pay 7.99. Maybe the should offer a discounted price for a 6 month and 1 year rate. I think if they lowered the price they would have more subscribers. I enjoy the articles but I live in the US and really only use it to stay informed.
  • Very good app

    I'm an English speaker interested in Lebanon. Though I understand what the reviewer below meant regarding the lack of access to certain areas of the site without a subscription, it is nevertheless a very valuable tool and I've found many ways around the restrictions. Notifications are excellent for Lebanon watchers and there is a large portion of the site dedicated to news of the day in-country. Have not yet detected a confessional, sectarian or political slant though I must say I haven't tried hard to find one. I highly recommend this site as a non- subscriber.
  • Pretty useless without a subscription.

    Pretty useless without a subscription. Subscription rates too high considering the quality and volume of content
