The Times and Sunday Times charging digital access


The Times and Sunday Times are to start charging for access to their websites and other digital services from June.

Both newspapers say they have been left with little choice in the face of falling circulation and growing competition from the web.

Users will pay £1 for per day for access or £2 for a one-week subscription.

The move opens a new front in the battle for readership and will be watched closely by the industry.
