Financial Times to change way it charges for online content

Currently readers can access up to three articles a month for free, and up to 10 if they are registered, but must become subscribers to access any more each month.

Starting on Friday, the newspaper, which is owned by the Pearson Group, will begin rolling out a system where visitors are offered a month’s free trial providing access to most FT content for a “nominal” sum.

The FT says it is still working on the details of the new system, but initially those already registered will still be able to access three articles a month.
