After 14 months in development, long-awaited “metered” model launches
The New York Times' much-hyped, feverishly-anticipated online paywall went live on Monday at 2:00 p.m. (ET), as scheduled. And so far, the world has not fallen off its axis.
The Times' long-term plan is to charge "heavy" users of the site between $15 and $35 per month for digital subscriptions to access the site, but the paper is offering all subscriptions plans for 99-cents each for four-week trials as part of the launch.
To mark this historic occasion, here are links to most of The Wrap's articles on the Times' paywall — as well as other approaches to paid content online.
