The process is just similar, download MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 > launch News app > Click on News Plus in the sidebar & follow the on-screen instructions to set up the subscription service.
If at some point you find Apple News Plus not worthy, then cancelling is also easy! Just open News App > tap on Following tab > Manage Subscriptions > Click on Cancel Free Trial.
