‘Financial Times’ modifies metered model

By Published on .

New York—The Financial Times has tweaked its metered model for enabling access to content on FT.com, a spokesperson confirmed Monday.

Previously, users could access one FT.com article before they were acquired to register. Now they must register before accessing any articles.

Registered users can access up to 10 articles a month at no charge. After that, readers are required to sign up for a paid subscription. With this metered model, a form of which The New York Times plans to implement online next year, FT.com increased its paid subscribers to 126,000 at the end of 2009, an increase of 15% year over year, according to the company.

Certain portions of the site, such as the FT.com’s blogs, remain open without registration.
