Later the NY Times was considering several options for charging for online content and yesterday the Newspaper announced a decision. The free ride will officially end early next year when the NY Times will begin charging for content after visitors have accessed a certain number of articles in a given month. Prior to reaching that number, content will remain free and accessible.

Earlier the Wall Street Journal reported that the NYTimes was considering this option as well as one similar to the Wall Street Journal itself, in which certain content requires a subscription.

The NYTimes doesn’t have all the pieces together and has not addressed major questions such as how many free articles visitors will have access to or how much content will cost. [via NYTimes]
