  37. 37. So what about newspapers?<br />3% agree with the statement ‘I would be willing to pay for newspaper content online:’ (n=64)<br />Good news given press reports from this week<br />What about mobile content? Well again not a great case… 2% agree with the statement ‘I would be willing to pay to receive newspaper content on my mobile device’ (n=51)<br />Given the limited base size of these, I’ve combined these to look at people who are willing to consider paying for online OR mobile content – 4% of respondents – n=90<br />
  38. 38. So who are these people willing to pay for news content right now?<br />50% are under the age of 35 (145) – 6% of under 35s are in in this boat<br />Male bias: (64:36) (131)<br />Much more likely to be ABC1 (64:36) (115)<br />70% within top 3 technology segments (51% in top 2)<br />Main source of daily new is TV, but less likely than population overall to be using this and other traditional media.

  39. 39. The non-rejectors…<br />Core of these people remains within the younger age groups – 42% aged &lt;35 (122)<br />41% of under 35s have indicated they are not against the idea of paying for news content (they’re just not mad on the idea)<br />There is a more even gender split amongst this group, though males are still slightly more open than females<br />Interestingly the non-rejectors includes a much higher proportion of C2DEs than we have seen, indeed 39% of C2DEs are non-rejectors of paid news content (115)<br />Although the non-rejectors are still more likely to fall within the developed end of the tech spectrum there is less a reliance on these groups than seen amongst those willing to pay now<br />This group currently use TV as their main source of news, and are slightly more likely to be users of newspaper websites. They are however less reliant on printed papers than the population overall (15% use newspapers as main source – index 115)<br />This group still see some value in newspapers though.they are not as fanatical as those who are ready to pay for content now. 17% of them agree they could not live without newspapers (96)<br />Although not everyone in this group agrees, they are more likely than the average to like the idea of reading a newspaper on an electronic device or e-reader (9.5% - index 139), suggesting that there may be some scope for development with that too<br />So what are they reading? Non-rejectors are less likely to be quality paper readers (weekly) than overall, with 17% having read a quality in the last 7 days, they are more likely to have read a popular 33% or mid market 19%<br />In terms of newspaper website use and what they are reading… 10% have visited a quality newspaper site (102), 6% have read a popular newspaper site and 4% a mid-market site<br />35% of quality website users don’t reject the idea of paid content , 36% of populars feel this way with 39% of mids website users open to paying for content<br />
