The Times' they are a charging

The Times and Sunday Times will start charging to access their websites in June, publisher News International announced today.
Users will pay £1 for a day's access and £2 for a week's subscription. Both titles will have their own websites rather than, as at present, being combined under TimesOnline. The two new sites will be available for a free trial period to registered customers.
NI chief executive Rebekah Brooks said it was "a crucial step towards making the business of news an economically exciting proposition.
"This is just the start. The Times and The Sunday Times are the first of our four titles in the UK to move to this new approach. We will continue to develop our digital products and to invest and innovate for our customers."
