New York, Jan 21(ANI): The New York Times has announced that it will charge for full access to its website from 2011.

According to reports, the newspaper will introduce a metered system, allowing readers free access to a limited number of articles, before charging for additional content.

The New York Times has yet to say how many stories will be available free and what it will charge to read more, The BBC reports.

Media analysts believe the decision may be the result of revenue fall.

Its parent group, the New York Times Company, made a loss of 35.6 million dollars between July and September of last year.

The newspaper had previously charged for access to its website back in 1996, but abandoned it after failing to build up sufficient subscription numbers.

Earlier, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation had said that it plans to start charging for access to its online newspapers.

News Corporation's titles include the Sun and Times in the UK, as well as the New York Post in the United States. (ANI)
