On August 4 1997, La Gaceta, the broadest circulation newspaper in the interior of Argentina, launched its first website, Gacenet. At the very beginning, the portal’s contents were the same as those published on the newspaper. In 2002 a web editorial team was created to update the site 24/7. At that time, the portal was given a new name: La Gaceta Online.
The news portal ranks among the 20 most visited news websites in the country, according to Alexa and SimilarWeb. In 2014 digital newspaper La Gaceta Salta was launched with specific content on that province.
Since July 2017, it is necessary to register to read over 20 articles per month. The system is still free.
In 2018 LG Play was launched. It is a live audiovisual content channel that is streamed on La Gaceta’s website, CCC’s Canal 11, YouTube and Facebook. Viewers can also access La Gaceta Shop, a shopping portal; La Gaceta Viajes, a tourist site; and Club La Gaceta, the newspaper’s loyalty card program.
