VANCOUVER, April 24, 2019 /CNW/ - PressReader, the popular all-you-can-read newspaper and magazine app, has closed a deal with Hearst Magazines USA. Effective immediately, 23 top magazine titles from Hearst are available exclusively for the millions of users on PressReader who access the service through a sponsor, like an airline, hotel, cruise line or library.
Available titles include Cosmopolitan, Elle, Esquire, Good Housekeeping, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Men's Health, O – The Oprah Magazine, Road & Track, Women's Health and more. This partnership with Hearst helps to further accelerate PressReader's fast-growing presence in the US market, following their recent launches with Rolling Stone, Meredith Corporation, and Hearst Newspapers.
For Hearst Magazines, PressReader offers the opportunity to get content in the hands of millions more people all over the world. PressReader partners with thousands of libraries, and travel brands like Turkish Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Air Canada, Fairmont, Marriott International, Scandic Hotels, and Seabourn Cruises. These organizations sponsor access to PressReader for their customers, who get to read and download as much as they like during their trip or visit. There's been a significant rise in brands looking to provide this type of unlimited access to premium digital content in recent years. According to Skift, "For airlines, cruise companies, and hotels alike, choosing what content to share and how to make it available becomes another branding opportunity."
