Virtually every letter to readers justifying a paywall and industry quote from publishers talk about The New York Times metered model. When you have 33 million unique monthly visitors and high value content that model almost works.

Even at 390,000 digital subscribers they understand that they have a way to go to close the revenue gap and create a sustainable business model. I’ve been in meetings where NYT executives caution that what works for The Times rarely works anywhere else.
