The Toronto Star’s “Digital Access” paywall launched Tuesday. It’s “a major transition for the Star,” Publisher John Cruickshank writes in a letter to readers.
Print subscribers who pay through an automatic monthly payment get free digital access; subscribers who pay manually have to pony up 4.99 Canadian dollars ($4.83) per month to read online. Pure digital access is available for CA$9.99. Videos, obituaries, classifieds and the Star’s homepage and section fronts are free, and nonsubscribers can read 10 articles per month free.
