Courier-Journal going to online pay wall

The Courier-Journal in Louisville plans to start charging online users for access to all content in print, web, mobile or tablet platform.

In an announcement Thursday, Courier-Journal publisher Wesley Jackson wrote that the subscription options will range from full access, including seven-day delivery of the print edition, to digital only. The new subscription plan goes into effect in June.

Jackson also wrote that an e-Newspaper, an electronic replica of our print edition, will allow readers to read page-by-page electronically on computers or tablets.

Nonsubscribers will have access to a limited number of free articles on each month. Some pages, including section fronts, obituaries, and, will remain accessible to nonsubscribers.

Jackson said subscribers will receive letters explaining their options and some may see an increase in price.
