New York Times Announces New Online Fee-Based Service

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on May 16, 2005

Press release: “The New York Times announced today a new online offering called TimesSelect, which for a modest fee will provide exclusive access to Op-Ed and news columnists on NYTimes.com, easy and in-depth access to The Times’s online archives [initially, the archives will go back only to 1980 but eventually to 1851], early access to select articles on the site, as well as other exciting features. While most of the news, features and multi-media on NYTimes.com will remain free and available to users, the work of Op-Ed columnists and some of the best known voices from the news side of The Times and The International Herald Tribune (IHT) will be available only to TimesSelect subscribers beginning in September. Home-delivery subscribers will automatically receive TimesSelect as part of their benefits. TimesSelect will be priced at $49.95 for an annual subscription.”
