From The NY Times:

The New York Times announced that beginning today it will offer unlimited access to video (NYTimes.com/video) on NYTimes.com, on the mobile Web site (m.nytimes.com) and on mobile applications, to all users regardless of their subscription status.

We are grateful to Acura and Microsoft for providing the support we need to continue to expand our best-in-class video content and deliver it to our vast NYTimes.com audience.”
