U.K.’s 'Independent' Newspaper Introduces Paywall

Charges for overseas readers

British newspaper The Independent is to introduce a pay service for non-U.K. readers, The Guardian reports. The Indy is the latest British title to adopt charges for its online service. The Times and Financial Times have already introduced paywalls for website access. But The Independent will apparently only charge international readers, not U.K. residents. In particular it will target online readers in the U.S. and Canada. North American readers will be charged $6.99 a month, according to The Guardian. The Independent has not announced the news on its website.
