HCBN is not going subscription based, will remain free


Yesterday, we began rolling out a “paywall,” which would require you to buy a subscription and be signed in to the website in order to read the articles.

You spoke, and we listened. The community did not want to pay for news. The other aspect that has been weighing on HCBN President, Mike Taylor’s mind is all of the low income people that wouldn’t be able to access the news that they depend on if it is subscription based.


So, we will remain being fully funded by advertisers. This means, that we need you, to use the advertisers that you see on this site. There is a lot of overhead in this business and there is nothing free for us. Again, please visit our advertisers and thank them for being part of the large HCBN family.

Here’s to a lifetime of free news from Hill Country Breaking News.
