New York Times Scales Back Number Of Free Articles Online


ny-timesYou still have, of course, but a year after rolling out its digital paywall, the New York Times announced today that it will scale back the number of articles it offers free online next month. The paper, which currently allows non-subcribers to view 20 free articles per month, is cutting that number back to 10.

Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Times chairman and publisher, said the paper currently has 454,000 paid subscribers for the Times’ various digital subscription packages, e-readers and replica editions. (That figure includes the International Herald Tribune, which is also owned by the Times.)

“This is truly a cause for celebration as nearly half a million people are now paying for digital content from The Times and the IHT,” Sulzberger wrote in a memo to staffers. “We know that our readers place a high value on our journalism, and we will continue to invest in and evolve our journalism and our products across the Company to provide them with trustworthy news, information and entertainment for many years to come.”
