KCStar to put up "paywall" for digital content on Dec. 5th

Well.....bye





http://www.kansascity.com/KansasCityStarPlus/




From the publisher
It has a few different names: The metered system, the all-platform-access program, the digital subscription, but mostly folks just call it The Paywall.

Later this year, The Kansas City Star will join hundreds of other news operations in moving to whatever it is you’d like to call it. Essentially, we’re going to charge a little bit for people to get our content, but you’ll be able to access it in a multitude of ways.

So, beginning on Dec. 5, The Star is adding all of our digital subscription products for our home delivery subscribers so that you will be able to enjoy one inclusive print and digital “Star+” subscription package.

Now, I understand that being charged for something that you’ve gotten for free isn’t fun. But providing unlimited access across all platforms for a small amount makes good sense.
This all-access way of packaging our content addresses the new ways people come to us, and provides incredible flexibility for our readers.

Readers will have unlimited access to our suite of digital products, including kansascity.com, e-Star replica edition, mobile sites, digital back-issues and archive databases. This provides subscribers with access on smart phones, tablets, PCs and more.

With e-Star – our digital replica of The Star’s print edition -- articles, photographs, even in-paper ads and crossword puzzles, can be emailed, printed and saved.

I recognize that charging even a few cents more isn’t necessarily popular, but we hope you’ll recognize that it is a logical strategy to enable us to provide quality local news and information in the increasingly myriad ways people reach us.

We are glad more people than ever read The Kansas City Star, as technology continues to enable us to reach more people in more ways. Thank you for reading and for helping us continue to serve and grow in this community, as we have for more than 131 years.

I won't miss the Star.

Usually only read it for sports, and most of the good writers have moved on to better things.

Consider it like a donation. Like PBS. I'd hate to see them just disappear. KC Star is one of the last good newspapers.

Sadly, this is a business decision. Will rely on the kindness of strangers when a Royals article appears that is a must read. LOL

I see no issue with this at all. That is a lot of free content and they are in the business to make money. I think all newspaper websites should have some form of metered use. It helps keep them in business which helps save jobs.
