$100.00/Year to Read the JS Online

Not surprising.


The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's digital subscription program is set to begin Jan. 4.

With its digital offering, called "JS Everywhere," the Journal Sentinel will offer access to JSOnline.com, the Journal Sentinel e-edition, its mobile site for smartphones, plus coming iPad and other digital applications for a subscriber's fee. Readers who subscribe to the print edition of the newspaper will receive free access to all digital products.

... Under the JS Everywhere plan, online readers will be able to read as many as 20 articles per month at no charge, but after reaching that threshold, will be prompted to become a print or digital subscriber.

 Readers who subscribe to digital-only access will pay $2.35 a week, said Hugh McGarry, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Journal Sentinel. The subscription can be paid annually, semiannually or monthly, he said.

Deekawife 3.0 gets the dead tree edition (she claims it's for the Sunday coupons), so it should be a wash. I can reuse it as fishwrap.

But geez. For $100 a year, I wouldn't bother.

Looks like the Brookfield Patch and others in the area will get plenty of hits.

I won't miss JSOnline.

I give them three months and all will be free again, bought out by someone or bankruptcy.
