San Diego Union Tribune puts up pay wall, Spanish-language properties remain free
Last Thursday the San Diego Union Tribune began charging nonsubscribers for full access to its online news content beginning. The audience will be able to read up to 15 article pages free each month on the website. Those who want to view more articles will be prompted to sign up for a digital subscription.
The company’s Spanish-language printed products — Enlace, La Bolsa Azul and Vida Latina — remain free.A digital subscription will give readers unlimited access to utsandiego.com and its mobile site; the U-T San Diego iPad News App; the eEdition and the eEdition iPad app.
The initial subscription price will range from 99 cents to $5.49 per week, depending on the “bundle” of digital and print products chosen.
The move follows similar initiatives by The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and hundreds of other media companies.
