a.k.a. subscribers, subscription business model

A business model in which a customer must pay a recurring price at regular intervals for access to a product or service. For example, like paying for a magazine, newspaper, cable, streaming music or TV subscription each month.

As opposed to generating revenue exclusively from online ads, some online publishers use a subscription-based business model. Publishers charge users a small fee to access their online content, which allows websites to remove online ads thereby making the browsing experience more pleasant.
