Amazon announced Tuesday that Kindle subscribers to The New York Times will be able to access the paper’s online content for free.
The newspaper recently put up a paywall for its online content, but has partnered with the online retailer to keep Kindle users from having to pay twice for content. There’s no date yet on when Kindle users can start accessing content for free. The “frequently asked questions” page on the Times’ paywall Web site says that the paper is currently working out how to verify the accounts. Amazon and The New York Times will share more information with Kindle subscribers later, via e-mail.
As for users of other e-readers, the FAQ site says that the paper can’t connect those subscriptions to online subscriptions yet, but has plans to “enhance” its e-reader subscription options in the future.
