More Paywalls (and revenue) from Conde Nast
Condé Nast announced that it will be putting all of its titles behind paywalls by the close of the year. Three publications – New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Wired – are already behind metered paywalls that require consumers to subscribe in order to access more than a few articles each. Now the company will expand “the wall” – around Vogue, GQ, Bon Appetit and Glamour. The New Yorker, which introduced a metered paywall in late 2014, generated about $115 million in paid subscription revenue

Antenna Only Households
According to a report from Nielsen, nearly 14% of U.S. households use bunny ears to access broadcast TV. Data from Nielsen suggests that growing population of antenna users is divided amongst older users, who use the signal mostly to watch broadcast television, and younger users, who use the antennas in conjunction with an internet-powered skinny bundle to access cable.
