Newsday online readers will have to pay up if they want to get the paper’s content. The pay wall site was launched yesterday, allowing full access only to print subscribers of the newspaper and to customers of Cablevision’s high-speed internet service Optimum Online.
Only subscribers will see stories, photos and video. Others will catch a glimpse of a headline and summary and will have to log in with a password in order to get more info. Those who are not subscribed to the paper or Optimum Online can pay $5 per week to view the online content. According to E&P there’s just one exception. All users will have free access to classifieds, entertainment listings, weather and obits.
