It is report today in the Sindo that RTE are to start charging a fee for all online content. This will be for overseas users and does not apply to the Irish audience because we pay licensing fees.
I wonder how much of the diaspora utilise RTE as a news source?
Noel Curran has told journalism students at the University of Limerick that those who consume news and media via their laptop or mobile phones are going to have to prepay for it, as news aggregators are lifting it for free while the original producers bear all the costs.
He revealed that RTE was set to start charging overseas users of their website for some of their online content before the end of the year.
