Another Paywall heralded . Confirm the TREND

Posted on December 12, 2011


ROY Greenslade last week reported: ‘‘Two Glasgow-based newspapers, The Herald and the Sunday Herald, are to charge readers for access to their websites. Users will be able to read 10 articles for free over each four-week period. If they wish to read more, they will have to pay. Think of it as low paywall! The charge is £1 for the first four weeks and then £2.99 after that. The Herald titles are owned by Newsquest/gannett. The company’s digital director, Mark Smith, said: ‘Our research shows that most of our users are happy to pay for something they value’.
