Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s iPad-exclusive publication, The Daily, is scheduled to arrive on January 17 and cost 99 cents per week for a subscriptions. All Things Digital’s Peter Kafka quotes “multiple sources,” saying “News Corp plans to launch the publication by the week of January 17.” More details:

Given that News Corp. has hired dozens of blabby journalists for the Daily, and interviewed many more, lots of other details about the app/service have leaked out already: It will come out daily, it will sell for 99 cents a week, it will use lots of video and it will have cool multimedia bells and whistles, including some kind of 3-D effect that lots of people are very excited about. And Apple CEO Steve Jobs may or may not participate in a launch event. Most important for other media companies: The Daily is supposed to use a new “push” subscription feature from Apple, where iTunes automatically bills customers on a weekly or monthly basis, and a new edition shows up on customers’ iPads every morning. – from All Things D

  • I wonder if paid online subscriptions will be the wave of the future for news sites. Nowadays there are so many ways to get the news for free. Media sites will have to provide alot of “bells and whistles” for me to pay for my news. That 3-D effect would be interesting to see, though.
