Reuters Fears Subscription Fatigue

Solid report by Reuters that - amongst many other things - shows the limits of paywalls. Most people have no more than 1 subscription, experiencing some kind of subscription fatigue. Furthermore, it is important how much news is out there for free. So the discussion about states providing free news (BBC or NOS in the Netherlands) really matters. Lots of charts per country in the report.

Moreover, news is not high on the list of must haves, when people consider all the subscriptions they have. Especially amongst young folks. When asked to keep only one sub, they go for online streaming (Netflix) and no more than 7% would choose news. We have been warned.
