MSN to charge for portal content?

Must be 'ard up

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

MSN is considering charging Net users £60 a year to access its content.

This is because it costs MSN more to run its portal than it makes in advertising revenue.

And it has to make-up the shortfall somehow.

Which is fair enough - plenty of porn sites make people pay for content so why not MSN?

However, if MSN does carry through its idea then it had better be prepared for the consequences; it's unlikely that this will be a popular move.

Furthermore, if advertisers don't think it's good enough to spend their money on it, why should punters spend their hard-earned cash propping up M$?

After all, it's not as if MSN is the only portal around, is it? ®
