Readers must pay to access The Sun website

Online subscription will cost £2 per week.

By Joe Curtis

Readers of The Sun must now pay to visit its website after it introduced a paywall.

The online version of the paper, called Sun+, costs £2 per week to subscribe to, compared to its print edition, which costs £3.20 a week.

Online readers can read 20 stories free per month before having to pay for access, similar to the policy adopted by the DailyTelegraph in March.

The Times went behind a paywall three years ago and the Financial Times also charges for access.

The Sun, owned by Rupert Murdoch, has a 2.3m print circulation, while about 1.7m visit the website a day.

Sun+ will try and encourage people to sign up with offers including access to videos of all Premier League goals.
