There are so many ways to get around the New York Times paywall (or, as someone called it when it debuted, its pay fence) but if you subscribe to the NYT on your Amazon Kindle, you are now “entitled to complete online coverage of breaking news, articles, videos, audio clips, multimedia and blogs on NYTimes.com” free of charge.
Amazon had promised this would be coming, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.
Customers can link their Kindle NYT subscription to their NYTimes.com account by visiting this site.
According to Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content, the New York Times remains the best-selling newspaper in the Kindle Store.
The Kindle subscription for the NYT costs $19.99 per month. I’m actually a subscriber, though only because I forgot to cancel my subscription in time after the free trial period.
And since my Kindle was stolen last week, I was going to cancel the subscription anyway, but now I may just leave things the way they are. Just so you know.
