On July 16, we unveiled the new Office, a cloud service that works beautifully with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard on new Windows devices - from PCs to tablets. With this release, we're modernizing Office, and an important part of that is the introduction of new subscriptions. Subscriptions open a host of possibilities, and subscribing to Office 365 will be the best choice for many - especially families, people with multiple devices and small businesses.
With a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices - everything from PCs and tablets to Macs. You can easily save to and access your documents from the cloud and personalize your experience with Office. We will update Office more frequently to support new scenarios, and subscribers will always be current with the latest innovations. Subscriptions also open new possibilities like integrating web services into Office in ways never before possible; in this release, we've added Skype calling minutes and SkyDrive storage, and in the future, we'll do more.
In this post, you'll find details on how to get the new Office 365 subscriptions for consumers and small businesses when available.
Office 365 Home Premium
A single subscription to Office 365 Home Premium covers the entire household. While you use a laptop, your daughter can use the PC in the den, and your son can use a tablet. You can each sign-in with your individual Microsoft accounts using your settings and accessing your documents, but you still need just one subscription to get:
Office 365 Home Premium, a single subscription for up to 5 users, will be available in both physical and online stores across 227 markets worldwide for $8.33 per month ($99.99 billed annually). A free 30 day trial will also be available online.
Office 365 Small Business Premium
In addition to Office 365 Small Business, the new Office 365 Small Business Premium is designed for organizations with 1-10 employees, and each user gets the following benefits:
Office 365 Small Business Premium will be available in both physical and online stores, including small business resellers, across 86 markets worldwide for $12.50 per user per month ($149.99 billed annually). A free 30 day trial will also be available online.
People who need Office on only one device can buy traditional Office suites. These offerings do allow you to save to SkyDrive by default and make it easy to connect to the cloud, but they are not available for multiple devices and do not include the latest updates or additional SkyDrive and Skype services. Prices start at $139.99 for Office Home and Student 2013 which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Office Home and Business 2013 includes all the applications in Home and Student plus Outlook. Office Professional 2013 includes the applications in Home and Business plus Access and Publisher. In addition, Office Home & Student 2013 RT comes on all Windows RT devices and includes fully featured editions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote optimized for ARM devices.
Buy Office 2010 and get one year free of Office 365 Home Premium
Starting October 19, people who purchase Office 2010 or Office for Mac 2011 will qualify to download, for free, one year of Office 365 Home Premium or the equivalent Office 2013 offering, when available. Small business customers in applicable markets will also be eligible for a three-month trial of Office 365 Small Business Premium.
Subscription features and details are available here. In the coming months, we'll share information about Office 365 Enterprise and other business offerings. Until then, please try the customer preview yourself.
* OneNote, Access and Publisher available for PC only.
** Skype account required. Excludes special, premium and non-geographic numbers. Calls to mobiles are for select countries only. Skype available only in select countries.
@Clint Patterson according to the price of $119.99 @Andrew is spot on about the 25% "Fake Australian Tax". Why the price diffrence? Surely most of the people in countries like Australia and the U.S. will purchase via download, so distribution costs should be almost the same.
Any word on the New Zealand price? Converting the Australian price to NZD gives $150, will this be the price?
What is the partner opportunity with the subscriptions services? Will it be similar to Office 365?
The subscription model has zero attraction for me.
I bought Office Home and Student 2007 for 125 Euro almost 6 years ago; it's still fine, and licensed for 3PCs - which is all I need.
I would be paying 600 Euro for the equivalent term for Office 365 Home Premium under the subscription model. Even buying three copies of the traditional Home and Student versions of Office 365 is cheaper than that at 420 Euros.
And frankly, I'm tempted to just buy one copy @ 140 Euros, and leave Office 2007 on the other two PCs.
The subscription model may be great for Microsoft, but it makes no sense for me.
I might be willing to go for the subscription, but only if it does not require to log in to the offline office applications. An activation key should be enough.

With a single subscription, you can use Office across a wide variety of devices - everything from PCs
So will the old Office 365 subscription plans disappear?
We have Office 2010 in our office. In addition to that, we had planned on getting the current P1 plan for small businesses priced at 6 USD per month per user.
In the new office 365, will this plan still be possible, or is 12,50 the cheapest plan for small business where you are required to pay for having the local office apps as well?
I find this article very unclear on this point.
Wonderful! currently i am using 2007 Home edition, could i upgrade it or I have to install it to every computer - http://www.bankinfoonline.com/
Vadim, the traditional 2013 SKUs can be installed on 1 PC or Mac. For multiple device installs, the subscription or multiple copies of the traditional SKU are required.
JohnCz, we can't yet comment on the roadmap, but your feedback is noted! We will have more news as we approach availability.
James, the SkyDrive storage and Skype ID are associated to one Microsoft Account / Skype ID. To share them across users in a household, you would need to share your ID.
browsetech, the SkyDrive storage and Skype ID are associated to one Microsoft Account / Skype ID. To share them across users in a household, you would need to share your ID. There is a straightforward My Account page on which you can add Microsoft Accounts and associate IDs with SkyDrive storage and Skype minutes. In my opinion, this is pretty darn straightforward. Different users in the same household can use different language versions at their discretion, you could use English while someone else on your subscription uses Norwegian.
Peter, it will be similar. In July, we announced Office 365 Open whereby partners can offer Office 365 in more of a traditional model. Office 365 Small Business Premium is one SKU for which this applies. I'd recommend checking out MPN for the most up to date details.
Anonymous, logging in is not required to access offline Office apps.
Fredrik, this post addresses only the new consumer and small business subscriptions. We'll share more about Office 365 for enterprises and students in the future. Office 365 Small Business is not going away and will be updated with new capabilities.
