Would You Pay for Reading New York Times Online? [Updated]

January 18, 2010

New York Magazine reposted that New York Times may soon announce its plan to start to charge for online access. The Times declined to make any comment until they have decided what to do.

Before this, the Times tried the free and premium accounts coexisting but that plan didn’t work well. Now they may settled on the metered system. That is, readers can sample a set number of articles for free each day, after which they’ll be prompted to subscribe.

I like to read the New York Times and the only way for me is to read it online. But I also don’t have much time to read a lot everyday. Therefore, if they indeed come out with the paid system, the subscription fee will a determining factor for me.😐

[Update]

New York Times has confirmed the “murmur”. The print subscribers needn’t pay for the online access. But New York Times has not laid out how they will charge the online users.
