Would you look at that screen grab, no sooner had we hit on The Daily this morning when we were met with the following subscription screen showing up. Seven days to go until D-Day for The Daily. Are you going to sign up?
It will cost you 99 cents per week in the US, it’s not yet available in the UK, although the ‘best value’ deal is the $39.95 a year rate.
News Corp are hoping there are going to be a lot of subscriptions taken out in a few days time, as the free period comes to an end. They have hired over 100 journalists to write for The Daily and obviously they need some income.
I know many folk are reluctant to pay for news on the internet, but you have to remember that someone has sat down and written it and they deserve to be paid. The dark days of writing for nothing, are hopefully coming to an end and this will mean for the reader that quality will prevail.
