The innovative Dutch pay-per-view news site Blendle has now been online four months, and has some 100,000 users

, of who some 20,000 are considered active, insofar as they have added credit to the system (new users automatically receive €2,50 in credit).

Blendle has been able to sign all the major Dutch newspapers and magazines for the service, despite initial fears that the service might cannablise the existing print subscriber base. The company's founders are planning to expand internationally and expect the site to break even in 2017.
