The launch of Mundus News

We are excited and proud to announce the launch of Mundus News on 20 October, 2014.

Following positive feedback from the post-election pilot, Mundus will commence with a daily summary in English of the major Swedish media sources and other relevant material from the Internet, such as Riksdag press releases and foreign media coverage of Sweden. Mundus News will be issued each morning, in a smartphone friendly format, designed so that you can read it on your way to work, or over a cup of coffee when you arrive at the office.

Why have you launched Mundus News?
Many foreigners say that there are too few sources of English-language news for professionals needing deeper insights into Sweden. Also, we believe that technological developments have enabled new ways of providing the latest stories before the work-day starts. We want to offer English-speakers something that takes advantage of these innovations, and also tells the news in a way that’s engaging and enjoyable to read.

Which news sources will you cover?
We are currently covering the online versions of Sweden’s major newspapers such as Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Aftonbladet, GöteborgsPosten, Sydsvenskan, Dagens Industri, Dalademokraten and Expressen. In addition we also monitor Sveriges Radio and the TV channels for important issues.

How much will Mundus News cost?
A subscription from October 20 until the end of 2014 is available for SEK 1270 + VAT, or at a monthly rate of SEK 600 + VAT.
