SCMP.com will provide free content

I've been hearing complaint from several friends on the website of South China Morning Post, the largest English newspaper in Hong Kong on its restriction of the free content. Now, according to reliable source, it will soon, only in a few days, allow readers to access to part of its content without subscribing the newspaper. (www.scmp.com)

Good news for those expats only reading English but caring about China. Congratulation, the paper has its first step to attract the online readers.

With more and more media covering China, the country has become a hottie among reporters and editors. Someone who has the vision to report the China in a balanced and neutral way will finally beat others. Hope the Post would be the one.

Hi Amy,
so will The Standard react to this with its online strategy in any way?

Yeah The Standard has always been free and in many ways it's a much better paper...

There are so many free online sources already. Hard to pay so much to read the SCMP. However if I had signed for a subscription I'd feel unhappy too.
