(Photo credit: Wikipedia)Newspaper digital subscription programs continue to grow, as roughly 186 newspapers across the nation have erected paywalls, according to the Web site Newsandtech.com
Gannett Co.'s U.S. Community Publishing division last week unveiled digital subscriber plans for The Des Moines Register, The Tennessean and The Courier-Journal, raising to 28, the number of its newspapers requiring online visitors to pay for access to content. (See "TUOL" post 2/23/12.)
A dozen major newspaper publishers have erected paywalls for digital versions of their publications, according to Poynter.org. Holdouts still remain, however, including Hearst Newspapers, LLC, which doesn't charge for online viewing.
