If you enjoy The Australian's even-handed journalistic approach to topics such as the NBN, then you're soon to begin paying for the privilege. News Limited today announced its paywall structure for the newspaper, with plans for the Daily Telegraph and the Herald Sun to follow at a later date.
The paper will be available under a freemium pay model, with basic news stories available for free, but premium content like features falling behind the paywall. The service will start at $2.95 a week, which will include access to the iPad and Android app. Alternatively, $7.95 will offer all that plus a six-day subscription to the actual newspaper.
The paywall will go into place in October. We'll see how well it performs then.
