You know, a “membership program,” like what you might enroll in at Costco: The cost of the Los Angeles Times’ paywall will translate to $1.99 for news consumers with a print subscription or $3.99 for readers without a print subscription, meaning digital-only access will cost around $16 for people who live outside of the LA Times’ print delivery footprint.
The LA Times will allow non-digital subscribers to read 15 articles within a 30-day period.
That’s roughly the same as the NYT, give or take a buck. By the way, this paywall is metered like their East Coast equivalent. Would you pay for the Times? (EDIT: The last post we had up about this topic was incorrect, and it’s $3.99 weekly, not monthly. Cheat Sheet, the original source of the article, flubbed it.)
