Sun Media announced Tuesday that it will join other Canadian publishers in selling paid subscriptions to online content (http://www.stockhouse.com/news/canadianreleasesdetail.aspx?n=8678489).
The revelation didnít garner the same backlash as when similar plans were announced by The Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star. But then, news of the new $5.99 a month Sun+ service ó which will launch next Tuesday ó wasnít immediately explained on its website. When it was, at the end of the day, the reader comments section was closed (http://www.torontosun.com/2012/11/27/sun-online-subscription-begins-december-4).

The models may become less modest: While the SUNshine Girl started in Toronto in 1971 as a snapshot of a wholesome young woman on the street, the feature eventually emulated the Page Three girls of The Sun tabloid in the U.K., who have been pictured topless each day since 1970. But the Suns across Canada repeatedly affirmed their commitment to keep nipples out of the picture. Will the desire to get more online subscribers finally change the game?

There was no outcry about Sun Media going pay-for because 95% of what they print is crap and nobody that has a clue reads it anyhow. :)

FYI - you can currently get around the Globe's paywall by putting your browser into "Incognito" mode on Chrome, or whatever the equivalent would be on other browsers.

I see JLoome won't be part of Sun Media's paid content. Nasty business. But the tarts will be continue to be viewable on a slightly limited basis.

The SSGs were one of the very few good things coming out of the Sun chain.

The G&M paywall is funny for me anyway, because I have a ton of computers at work that I can Remote Desktop into. 10 free pages per computer... ;)

as for the sunshine girl, whatever photo they print in the paper will probably be free online. if you care to see more of them, then it will cost you.
