The News & Observer announced this week it will begin charging for digital content starting Wednesday, Dec. 19.
The newspaper's e-edition, which looks the same as the print paper; all content on the N&O's website, newsobserver.com; and content on its mobile site and iPhone and Android smartphone apps will move behind a pay wall.
The e-edition and the N&O Zone Subscriber Rewards will be completely behind the paywall. Users accessing content on other platforms will get a limited number of page views over a 30-day period before they will be asked to subscribe.
Visitors will receive 15 page views on the website, 20 page views on the mobile site and 60 page views on smartphone apps.
