Weekly puts up paywall for new digital edition

A weekly newspaper in Northumberland is to delay putting its stories online by three days in a bid to get readers to pay for a new digital edition, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
The Hexham Courant has put up a paywall-protected digital edition. It will cost 55p a week for a year's subscription, compared to 70p a week for the print edition.
HTFP says in an attempt to encourage readers to buy it, or the paper, the Courant is to postpone its weekly upload of stories on its website from its publication date on Fridays to Mondays.
