Fairfax Media, owners of The Age and AFR, is set to relaunch the afr.com after a few months from it’s first relaunch; with more content becoming free, after a few critics complaints.

This is in response to Rupert Murdoch was considering to make ‘The Wall Street Journal’ website a free service.

“We are going to make afr.com more accessible for users – but let’s go back to the beginning. There are four dimensions at work here: news and information; archives; investment and financial tools; and a digital rights management system,” He told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Unlike other news sites, stories written by AFR writers were available in subscription format. These cost $25 per month to $150 a month, depending on the plans.

It is unknown when the change is coming, but it would come in “a matter of weeks.”
