Variety newspaper plans to charge for parts of its web content early next year.

After trialing free online content for three years, the entertainment trade publication plans to put some of its online content behind a “pay wall” that will require a paid annual subscription.

The website was almost entirely reserved for paid subscribers until October 2006, when it lifted that restriction to boost traffic.

How much of the new site will be reserved for paying customers has yet to be finalised.
