Reuters does not offer free news content to online publishers anymore?
Reuters, the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, says that for the first time, it will not offer a portion of Reuters multimedia news content for free to digital publishers through its publisher platform, Reuters Media Express. As the media industry navigates the unprecedented shift to digital publishing and online news consumption, Reuters was committed committed before to innovating and challenging conventional models to help publishers and expose more readers to its award-winning news content. This move marks the first time since 2015 that Reuters has refused to offer its content free-of-charge to on any scale.
Digital publishers who could download up to 10 articles ready-to-publish Reuters news items per month – including text, pictures, video and multimedia packages cannot download any more.
