Right on the heels of the news that the newspaper industry sucks at making money, the New York Times has announced that beginning in April, it will no longer let readers access 20 articles monthly for free. Instead, readers will only be allowed 10 articles per month, inevitably pushing more and more people towards their digital subscription options.
It’s been a year since the Times instituted its paywall and since, the paper has seen a positive start, garnering 454,000 digital subscribers. Paid options begin at $15 monthly for unlimited online and smartphone access and run up to $35 monthly for full digital access, including tablets. Though of course, you can still bypass the Times’ paywall altogether by accessing articles via Twitter or Facebook links.
