Media group Agora, which owns one of the biggest Polish daily’s Gazeta Wyborcza, has announced the expansion of its paid subscription services.
It will now provide paid access to most of its sections, with monthly plans starting from PLN 17,90. They will provide free access to everyone, but it will be limited to 10 articles per month.
Agora officials said that they hope to have 30,000 subscribers by the end of the year, from the current 10,000 figure. The new subscription system will be independent from the currently used Piano system, a service that provides paid access to a number of websites, including Agora services.
Agora management explained that similar subscription fees have been already introduced by many leading, international websites, including New York Times, Die Welt or the Financial Times. “Thanks to this solution we will be able to provide our readers with high-quality premium content,” said Robert Musiał management board member of Agora.
