World renowned newspaper, The New York Times, announced today that it will begin charging for accessing the contents of its website.
“Today marks a significant transition for The Times, an important day in our 159-year history of evolution and reinvention,” New York Times Chairman and Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. said in a statement.
Starting today, Canadian readers will have to pay to access the content of the Times, while the payment model will be applied in the United States and the world since March 28th.
The New York Times will charge $15 per month for unlimited access to NYTimes.com and a smartphone application; $20 per month for online access and an Apple Inc iPad app; and $35 per month for online, smartphone and an iPad app.
Those who do not pay the monthly subscription will only be able to read 20 articles per month and google searches will only display five free articles per day.
