[efoods]The New York Times Company is considering charging a fee for access to its website, and has begun asking its print edition subscribers how such a charge would affect their subscriptions.
In a survey targeting existing subscribers, the media company said it was “considering charging a monthly fee of five dollars to access its content, including all its articles, blogs and multimedia.”
The survey then asks: “How likely would you be to pay a 2.50 dollar monthly fee — which would be a 50 percent discount for home delivery subscribers — for continued, unlimited access to nytimes.com?”
At present, users can access all content on the nytimes.com website for free, but the company has experimented with access charges before.
