Murdoch's The Daily to 'launch soon in the UK'


The iPad newspaper launched by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation is likely to launch to consumers in the UK in the first half of this year, according to a report.

News Corporation’s chief digital officer Jon Miller told the Abu Dhabi Media Summit that The Daily’s launch in Western Europe would be “not too long from now”, the Guardian reported.

However, Miller said the app was about to face ‘its moment of truth next week’as it was almost at the point in the US when it would begin to charge for access.

Until now The Daily has been free but will introduce charges of 99 cents a week or $39.99 for a year for readers.
