It looks like we made a mistake in our article, and it seems that the pricing mentioned by Adage is actually $0.99 per week, and not $0.99 per day, which would seem a lot more sensible and something people may actually be willing to pay.
Whilst we are waiting for Rupert Murdoch and News Corp to launch their daily iPad newspaper, which is called ‘The Daily‘ we have been hearing quite a bit of speculation about how much the media tycoon intends to charge users for this new daily iPad only newspaper.
Now Adage is reporting that Ruper Murdoch intends to charge readers of the daily $0.99 per day, which works out at around $365 a year, this is slightly expensive to say the least.
Whats interesting that the $0.99 rumored daily fee for Murdoch’s iPad newspaper wont get you an advert free newspaper, instead the daily will also feature adverts, although it looks like these wont be provided by Apple’s iAd platform.
If this pricing does end up being what News Corp will charge for The Daily, we suspect that Murdoch wont get that many subscribers to his new iPad only publication, as the majority of the information will be available to read online for free.
