PIANIO Media, the enterprise that started a media pay-wall in Slovakia in May 2011 has now expanded to another country as the scheme was introduced in Slovenia in mid January, David Brauchli from Piano Media told The Slovak Spectator.

Brauchli said that Piano’s unique chronological metering system and joint payment system attracted huge interest from publishers across the world when the Slovak pay-wall was first erected and that Slovenian publishers were eager to use the system. For that reason Piano's management was able to get the project off the ground in Slovenia quickly.

Nine major publishers with 12 different brands and websites in Slovenia are participating in the Piano project there, including the majority of major newspapers. Prices for subscriptions in Slovenia are €1.99 per week, €4.89 per month or €48.90 per year, more than the current prices in Slovakia at €0.99 per week, €2.90 per month or €29 per year.
