The Boston Globe follows New York Times behind a pay wall, with a tablet-centric look & feel
A. The site will be free for the rest of September because of a promotion by residential real estate company Coldwell Banker. After that, BostonGlobe.com costs $3.99 a week for a digital-only subscription. That price is less than the paper’s seven-day home delivery cost of $12.25 a week for subscribers within the Boston region, but more than Sunday-only home delivery of $3.50 a week.
Q. If I subscribe to the paper, must I pay for BostonGlobe.com?
A. No, all home-delivery customers, including Sunday-only, get free access.
