The Week: Media news - Papers mull web charges

Several national newspaper groups are plotting to introduce paid-for content on their websites, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph.

News International is thought to be considering ways to roll out its paid-for content on The Times' website, while Gavin O'Reilly, the chief executive of Independent News & Media, has also said that he is looking at ways to get consumers paying for web content. O'Reilly told The Daily Telegraph: "I think we will see more and more content moving to subscription. If we are giving all our content away, it's obviously necessary."
