U.K.'s Times Gives Tally of Digital Sign-Ups
News Corp.’s U.K. newspaper division announced Tuesday that more than 100,000 readers have paid for digital editions of the Times and Sunday Times–with about half of those being monthly subscribers–following a move to put the newspapers’ content behind a paywall.
News International Ltd., said Tuesday that around half of the 105,000 paying readers are monthly subscribers, including those to the digital sites and to the Times iPad app and Kindle edition. The others are either single copy or pay-as-you-go customers. There are also about 100,000 joint digital and print subscribers who have activated their digital accounts to the Web sites, the iPad app, or both, since launch, the company said.
