Postmedia Network rolled out online paywalls on all 10 of its dailies Tuesday, following a two-year pilot project.

The metered paywall will allow print subscribers unlimited access to their newspaper’s website. Canadian users without a print subscription will be able to access 10 free articles monthly while international readers can access five free articles.

“Newspapers around the world are realizing you can’t spend millions of dollars on content and give it away for free,” said Postmedia president and CEO Paul Godfrey in a release.
