However, it didn’t reveal the financial terms of the deal. The Times will receive up to $100 million from Google over the next three years, according to persons familiar with the situation who spoke to the WSJ recently. The NYT will take part in Google News Showcase as part of this agreement.

While NYT also denied responding despite the fact that the original announcement was shared earlier this year. It is going to be a major revenue stream for NYT despite the current economic conditions. Due to economic instability, users are very cautious while spending money. It is also impacting the ad market. This deal will definitely help NYT to compensate for the revenue declines from the ad business.
