Washington Post Paywall Coming

Jun 06, 2013

On Wednesday, June 5, the Washington Post announced in a blog post that it will begin phasing in its metered subscription model on June 12. Non-subscribers will be able to see 20 pieces of content per month. The blog also detailed other aspects of the new paywall:

"Whether or not you subscribe, we will not limit your ability to view The Post's homepage and section front pages, watch videos or search classified advertising. In addition, readers who come to The Post through search engines or shared links will be able to access the linked page regardless of the number of articles they have previously viewed."

Subscriptions will start at $9.99 for access via mobile and desktop. If you want access to all the custom apps as well, you'll have to cough up $14.99.  If you're a home delivery subscriber, you'll continue getting complimentary access to all of The Post's digital products.
