Seattle Times Latest Paper to Build Paywall

by

comment

The Seattle Times is the latest regional newspaper to start charging extra for its online access.

Times Executive Editor David Boardman wrote in a Sunday column that his organization will begin charging consumers if and when they visit the newspaper's website too many times. Digital subscriptions will be free to readers who already have the Seattle Times delivered. Online-only subscriptions will also be available.

The Idaho Statesman put up a paywall between its online content and readers in November 2012.

Since The New York Times installed its own paywall in March 2011, more than 400 daily newspapers across the country have followed suit.
