Welcome To The New 604 Now

Whether you’re a first time reader or returning visitor, we want to extend you a warm welcome to our new website.

604 Now originally launched in 2011 and since then it’s been an ongoing experiment. Over the years we’ve learned a lot about ourselves and more importantly about you, our readers.

The ever changing world of digital media has been a learning curve to say the least, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Through trial and errors, ups and downs, we’re excited to bring you a whole new era of 604 Now. Welcome to the new 604Now.com.

User Experience

User experience was on the top of our list so we’ve tossed out everything you weren’t using and narrowed in on areas  and content you’ve engaged with the most. This includes events, travel, food, as well as news.

Accessibility

The new platform is a single design, offering a responsive experience across all devices. Stories on your desktop will be the same on your tablet, and the stories on your tablet will be the same on your phones.

Notable Features

City Pages: We’ve gone back to our roots and prioritized easy access to the latest of the above categories to each of their respective cities. Whether you live in Vancouver or Langley, Richmond or Surrey, Burnaby or Coquitlam, there is a new homepage for your respective city. This new structure allows us to cover and present the latest content related to each city in entirely new ways.

Accounts: Our travel and food related articles are designed to make you explore the city and nearby places to visit. To help encourage this, readers can now create accounts which allow you to save content. This ultimately allows you to save places to visit and create bucket-lists of all the things you want to do and eat. Get started right here.

Events Calendar: In addition to events shared by our editors, our events calendar is now fully accessible to the public. This means you can add and promote any upcoming events you or your team is organizing. Just as important, you can now save events you’re interested in attending. Simply create an account to do so, or import it directly into your off-site calendar apps. You can do both by clicking these buttons near the bottom of each event post:

Let Us Know What You Think

As with the launch of any new site, we’re sure there’s a few kinks that need to be ironed out but you can count on us to be on top of it.

604 Now will continue to reinvent itself and we want you to come along for the ride. With that being said, thank you for all your support, feedback and reading about our biggest update yet. If there’s anything you’d like to bring to our attention, don’t hesitate to shoot us a message.

We’d also like to take this time to thank Sparkjoy Studios for the makeover, Snaptech Marketing for their digital insights, and the editors, contributors, photographers, and designers for their passion for the website.
