NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2012 — Next Issue Media, a joint venture formed by five leading U.S.-based publishers – Conde Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp. and Time Inc. – today announces 31 new titles, expanding the catalog for iPad® subscribers to 72 popular magazines. This expansion comes just two months after the launch of Next Issue for iPad and extends the value proposition for customers, offering unlimited access to all titles for a single, low monthly price.
New titles being added to the Next Issue unlimited catalogs include: Cosmopolitan, Country Living, Details, Eating Well, Elle Decor, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Family Circle, Family Fun, Food Network Magazine, Golf World, Good Housekeeping, Harper’s Bazaar, HGTV Magazine, House Beautiful, Ladies’ Home Journal, Living the Country Life, Marie Claire, Midwest Living, More, O, The Oprah Magazine, Redbook, Road & Track, Seventeen, Successful Farming, Teen Vogue, Town & Country, Traditional Home, Veranda, W, Woman’s Day and Wood.
“Our goal is to provide customers with the best digital reading experience, and offering unlimited access to the world’s greatest magazines at a flat monthly price comparable to popular music and video services is central to that,” said Morgan Guenther, CEO of Next Issue Media. “By doubling the number of our world class titles, we are giving our subscribers and their families a way to read more of their favorites while discovering great new content from leading brands that they haven’t sampled before.”
While the catalog has expanded, the pricing for Next Issue unlimited access plans remains unchanged. Unlimited Basic, which includes access to all monthly and bi-weekly titles, continues to be offered for just $9.99 per month. Unlimited Premium, offering access to all 72 titles in the catalog including the weekly titles, remains priced at $14.99 per month.
The new titles are added to the existing catalog of favorites such as: Better Homes and Gardens, Conde Nast Traveler, ELLE, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Fitness, FORTUNE, GQ, PEOPLE, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, The New Yorker, TIME, Vanity Fair and Wired.
