Time Inc., owned by AOL Time Warner AOL.N said on Thursday it would charge for the online editions of 14 of its magazines starting with People and Entertainment Weekly on Monday.
People and Entertainment Weekly’s Internet editions will be out of bounds to readers except to America Online members, subscribers to the specific magazines, or people who buy the newsstand edition.
In the following weeks, magazines such as Teen People, Real Simple and In Style will follow the same route.
The move is part of an announcement planned for Monday by Internet service provider AOL for new broadband services.
It currently has 35 million members, 2.7 million of which access the Internet via high speed connections.
