NYTimes Begin Charging



曾經一度收費,後來又整個放棄收費政策紐約時報New York Times,似乎又準備好要重新實施收費政策。

New York Times Chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr. appears close to announcing that the paper will begin charging for access to its website, according to people familiar with internal deliberations. After a year of sometimes fraught debate inside the paper, the choice for some time has been between a Wall Street Journal-type pay wall and the metered system adopted by the Financial Times, in which readers can sample a certain number of free articles before being asked to subscribe. The Times seems to have settled on the metered system.

根據NY Mag的報導,紐約時報已經就是否重新收費的問題,討論了一整年。


Apple's tablet computer is rumored to launch on January 27, and sources speculate that Sulzberger will strike a content partnership for the new device, which could dovetail with the paid strategy.


  1. 採行華爾街日報The Wall Street Journal的收費模式:即部份免費,部份必須收費訂閱。
  2. 採行定額定量(Metered System)的收費模式:預先設定瀏覽篇數或頁數,超出預定額度就啟動收費訂閱。
  3. 採行付費會員享有進階權益福利(NPR-style membership model)的收費模式:即重返2007年秋天之前的收費模式。
