The trend of newspapers implementing paywalls is emerging in Brazil. Starting on Thursday, June 21, the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo will start charging a fee to access the content on its website, which will have the entire printed edition available, reported the same newspaper.
This Sao Paulo newspaper already had incorporated a paywall system on its tablets and smartphone applications, but now it will be the first Brazilian newspaper to also include the system on its website. The newspaper Estado de S. Paulo and O Globo also said that they will begin charging for access to their digital content, but they have not yet set a date for when this will take place, according to Meio e Mensagem.
