    Default NY Times Goes Digital Today

    It starts in Canada today, and goes world-wide on 3/28. Those who subscribe to home delivery will have unlimited, free online access.

    If you are not a home delivery subscriber, you will have free access up to a defined reading limit. If you exceed that limit, you will be asked to become a digital subscriber.

    This is how it will work, and what it means for you:

    On NYTimes.com, you can view 20 articles each month at no charge (including slide shows, videos and other features). After 20 articles, we will ask you to become a digital subscriber, with full access to our site.
    On our smartphone and tablet apps, the Top News section will remain free of charge. For access to all other sections within the apps, we will ask you to become a digital subscriber.

    The Times is offering three digital subscription packages that allow you to choose from a variety of devices (computer, smartphone, tablet). More information about these plans is available at nytimes.com/access.
    Again, all New York Times home delivery subscribers will receive free access to NYTimes.com and to all content on our apps. If you are a home delivery subscriber, go to homedelivery.nytimes.com to sign up for free access.

    Readers who come to Times articles through links from search, blogs and social media like Facebook and Twitter will be able to read those articles, even if they have reached their monthly reading limit. For some search engines, users will have a daily limit of free links to Times articles.

    The home page at NYTimes.com and all section fronts will remain free to browse for all users at all times.
    20 articles/month would be less than one article per day.

    I'll miss the rattling of paper and black ink on fingers. Call me old fashioned...

    Plus, how do you scavange used papers in diners and subways when everyone is digital??

    I will not miss it. I'll stick with the Dallas Morning News. Unfortunately, news papers are a thing of the past. Reading on line to me is just not the same as reading the paper.

    The Times will still print, but essentially will now be charging for what it used to give away free.
