Spatula City reports that the Dallas Morning News will start charging $16.95/month
(or roughly $4.24/week) for access to some of its online content. The service includes an iPad app.
Let's compare to the Wall Street Journal
's subscription deal
. Most articles can be accessed for free, but some (like certain guest editorial articles) require paid subscription. The weekly prices are:
Online Journal: $1.99
Print Journal: $2.29
Print + online: $2.69 (plus 2 free weeks, requires 54-week subscription)
This ain't gonna fly, DMN.
