The Irish Times announced on May 1 that it is joining the “pay for premium” newspaper brigade on the web. The cost: 79 euros per annum, with short subscription alternatives. The product: pretty much the standard interpretation of premium — breaking news, access to the archive, and full access to the newspaper content. Partial access to the paper will remain free, as will the ad revenue sites (jobs, cars and property) and specials such as a World Cup site.
