The Times and Sunday Times To Charge For Access [news.bbc.co.uk]
The Times and Sunday Times newspapers will start charging to access their websites in June, owner News International (NI) has announced.

Users will pay 1 for a day's access and 2 for a week's subscription.

The move opens a new front in the battle for readership and will be watched closely by the industry.

NI chief executive Rebekah Brooks said it was "a crucial step towards making the business of news an economically exciting proposition".

Both titles will launch new websites in early May, separating their digital presence for the first time and replacing the existing, combined site, Times Online.

Hmmm... pay 29p a day to read Times Online OR start reading Telegraph.co.uk for free? (Or indeed the Independent or Guardian Unlimited or the Scotsman or...)

Tricky choice isn't, it? Especially when you've just been made redundant, seen your department endure a pay-cut or you're out on strike...
