The New York Times will start charging a monthly fee of at least $15 starting March 28 for frequent readers accessing their website. If you read more than 20 articles per month, then accessing full content on the Times website will cost you. Actual pricing varies on a sliding scale according to digital news packages. The digital packages will seek to cater to individual user needs by providing customized access and pay levels:
- $15 per month for access to nytimes.com and a mobile phone app
- $20 per month for access to nytimes.com and the iPad app
- $35 per month for access to all of the above
The New York Times has been moving aggressively to keep up with the changes in digital publishing and this is yet another example.
