'New York Times' introduces digital subscriptions

Published on .

New York—A year after beginning research on how it might charge for online content, The New York Times has introduced a digital subscription plan that requires payment for some users of its website as well as its applications for smartphones and tablet computers.

Beginning today in Canada and March 28 globally, non-home-delivery subscribers will be limited to viewing 20 editorial items—articles, slideshows, videos, etc.—at no charge within a four week period. When that limit is reached, those users will be asked to choose from three plans, priced at $15 to $35 per four-week period, depending on their number of Internet-capable devices, to continue accessing the Times online, according to the publication.

Home-delivery newspaper subscribers will receive free, unlimited access to online content, but must sign up in advance.
