Paywall for The Sun

News International is set to erect a paywall for The Sun’s website in the second half of 2013.

The strategy follows that at The Times, with News International launching a paywall for the paper on 2 July 2010.

A News International statement said: "Later this year the pay model will be applied to The Sun across every platform. We will be offering our valued Sun readers a bigger and better experience than they have ever had before – one that in addition to FA Premier League clips will offer a full and attractive subscription model across digital and print."
