The News Of The World Paywall Screws The Times

by | 18th, September 2010

The News of the World is following big sister The Times and is putting up a paywall on its website next month.

The attempted money spinner is being tied in with a website relaunch. Logging on towww.notw.co.uk will be £1 a day and £1.99 for a month. Media site The Drum is saying an iPad appwill follow at £1.19 per week.

Let’s Spell It Out, The Times Paywall Is A Disaster

The World’s magazine supplement, Fabulous, will revamp its website www.fabulousmag.co.uk at the same time with access included with the News of the World.

What’s not clear is how many hits The Times paywall has cost the Rupert Murdoch empire News International / News Corp. or, more importantly, if News of the World’s move is a bid to support a web success or failure.

Anyone know and care to share?

Go on, tell us, we won’t grass if you’re one of Rupert’s hedge trimmers. – AGW
