New York Times Drops Paywall for Video

Like watching The New York Times’ videos? Well good news for all you cheapskates out there: It’s now free to do so. Videos viewed on,, the paper’s mobile site and apps, will no longer count toward the 10 article per month limit enforced on non-subscribers.

The move is part of a bigger plan to push video, said Denise Warren, executive vice president of the Times’ digital products and services group. “As we continue to tell stories through video and increase our offerings, we want to ensure users can watch and explore our video content with ease,” explained Warren in a statement.

The Times’ live and on-demand videos are separated into several categories, Latest News, Style, Arts, Business, Opinion, Sports, Science, News/Times Cast, World, U.S. and Editor’s Choice.
