Although Newsday announced plans to charge for its online content earlier this year, we just noticed a note about it on the site this morning.
Access to Newsday.com will be free to current Newsday subscribers as well as those who get their Internet access through Cablevision’s Optimum Online, and the site is currently asking all visitors to register before the paywall goes up. Anyone else will have to pay $5 a week for limited access to the site, and there will also be an e-edition option that will cost $19 for a four-week subscription to $195 for a year.
Newsday has made a number of changes in recent months, updating its logo and front page and revamping its Web site. Last month, the paper’s publisher Tim Knight resigned from his post, and Terry Jimenez, the publisher of amNewYork, the free paper also owned by Cablevision, was appointed to take his place.
