The New York Times Cuts Number of Free Articles in Half
Capitalizing on its digital-only subscriber growth
Last Friday The New York Times (NYSE: NYT) tightened its metered paywall, cutting the number of free articles non-subscribers can read from 10 to five, reports Bloomberg. It is the first change The Times has made to its paywall since April 2012 when readers could access 20 articles for free, according to The Verge. The goal, of course, is to continue growing its digital-only subscriber base of approximately 2.5 million as of the end of the third quarter.
