Want The News Now? Then


Want The News Now? Then Pay Up: A newspaper in Singapore has done what pundits here in US have only been debating for months and perhaps years now: Singapore’s only business daily, the Business Times, will soon unveil an unusual gated scheme for its website, which bars non-subscribers from viewing fresh news articles until 2 pm (6 am GMT) Singapore time. The costs for a three-month, six-month and annual subscription are S$15 (US$8.60), S$28 (US$16) and S$48 (US$27.50), respectively. Subscribers of the printed Business Times, which has a circulation of about 35,000, will get free access to the Web site.
