News Ltd will begin charging for online content in October, starting with a subscription model for The Australian.
The “freemium” model will offer a mix of free and subscription-only content, starting from $2.95 a week for a digital-only subscription through to $7.95 a week for six days of the print version plus a full digital subscription.
Existing six-day print subscribers, who pay $6.95 per week, will receive a complimentary digital subscription.
Bwahaha, sif you’d pay. I’ll just have to go to another place to find news to pimp.
What do you reckon? Think this is doomed to fail? I think it is a good thing. ZGeek can only benefit.
