Bloomberg News will begin charging $34.99 a month for readers to access its content on its website, reports Benjamin Mullin of The Wall Street Journal.
Mullin reports, “The global financial-news company is announcing Wednesday the start of a metered paywall that charges users for access to Bloomberg.com and the company’s consumer news apps.
“The paywall has two tiers. For $34.99 a month, users will get access to Bloomberg.com, the company’s mobile and tablet apps and a live stream of Bloomberg TV, as well as podcasts and subscriber-only daily newsletters.
“The other option, at $39.99 a month, includes the first-tier products along with a print and digital subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek and access to some BloombergLIVE events. Readers can still purchase a standalone digital and print subscription to the magazine.
“Users will be able to read 10 articles a month and stream 30 minutes of Bloomberg TV a day for free before the paywall kicks in, an enticement for readers sampling the company’s journalism who might be persuaded to subscribe.”
