The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting:
The New Republic, the American political magazine, is banking on a new subscription plan: They are putting up a $30 paywall starting tomorrow, April 7.
All visitors to the magazine's site will be asked to register for TNR.com. Once they sign up, some content will be available for free, including blog posts, online-only columns and some features. But most long-form magazine articles will be kept behind a paywall.
TNR will offer three premium pay plans:
- $29.97 for access to all online content.
- $39.97 for a year's subscription to the print edition, digital and ereader versions, plus online access.
- $44.97 for TNR Society, which provides home delivery of the print edition, Web access, online archives, and insider newsletters, articles, and invitations to high-profile events.
