Australia newspaper goes behind pay wall
Sydney - One of Australia's leading newspapers will begin charging this year for some of its content online.
The chief executive of The Australian said the paper plans to put some of its stories behind a pay wall starting in October. It will continue to offer some content, including breaking news, for free.
Richard Freudenstein said the paper's "freemium" model would be similar to the one used by The Wall Street Journal.
Both papers are owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
Freudenstein announced the plan on Tuesday. A digital subscription to The Australian will cost A$2.95 a week, cheaper than a print subscription currently costs.
