About Sunday Times Daily


About Sunday Times Daily

The last print edition of The Times newspaper appeared on December 15 2017. We wanted to replace the printed paper with a digital equivalent to fill the gap – and so Times Select was born in February 2018, publishing more than 700 daily editions until being renamed Sunday Times Daily in September 2020.

Sunday Times Daily, published by Arena Holdings, is SA’s first digital daily edition, put together by the reporters and editors in the Sunday Times newsroom to tell you what you need to know and why it matters – all in a convenient 20-minute read.

It gives you a sharply edited view of the news of the day – SA news exclusive to Sunday Times Daily as well as a selection of other important or interesting national, business, lifestyle, sport and world news.

Top columnists and opinion writers available exclusively to Sunday Times Daily readers include Justice Malala, Tom Eaton, Jonathan Jansen, Tony Leon, Wendy Knowler, William Gumede and more.

When is Sunday Times Daily published?

A new edition is online daily from Monday to Friday at 5am. Readers can also sign up for a morning newsletter delivered via email or download the Sunday Times Daily app from the Google Play store, the Huawei AppGallery and Apple's App Store.

Who can read Sunday Times Daily?

When you register on Sunday Times Daily, you can comment on free articles and subscribe to our email newsletter, send out at 5am daily. If you've already registered on TimesLIVE, BusinessLIVE or SowetanLIVE, sign in with the same details.

However, most of the content on Sunday Times Daily is reserved for our subscribers. View the subscription options or have a look at our FAQs page. All Sunday Times subscribers also have access to Sunday Times Daily.

How is Sunday Times Daily different from TimesLIVE?

Unlike news sites that produce a constant stream of breaking news all day long, Sunday Times Daily cuts through the noise for readers who are overloaded with information or too busy to spend their lives glued to a screen.

TimesLIVE publishes a wide range of free news 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while Sunday Times Daily is an unmissable once-a-day snapshot of essential news.
