Confirmed: NYT to start charging for content, starting 2011
What has been rumored for awhile is now official: Next year (2011), the New York Times is going to implement a model where “frequent readers” will have to start paying for content.
Essentially, this model will allow for X number of pageviews, after which the viewer will need to pay to view. (X is still to be determined)
Not surprisingly, many people are skeptical.
