New York Times cuts free reads in half

The New York Times has cut the number of free online articles that readers are allowed to access per month in half. The publishing company today said that starting in April readers will be able to access 10 stories for free each month. The New York Times previously allowed its readers to access 20 free stories online. The move is a not-so-subtle attempt on the Times’ part to push more of its readers to digital subscriptions. Those digital paid subscriptions have proven somewhat popular, the Times said. In the last year since they’ve been available, 454,000 subscriptions have been purchased for access to The New York Times and the International Herald Tribune.
