PixelMags Announces Support for the BlackBerry 10 Platform With the Launch of AnyTime(R)Enables Consumers to Discover New Magazine Content, While Expanding Digital Readership for Publishers (May 01, 2012)
ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 05/01/12 -- PixelMags Inc. (www.pixelmags.com), a world leader in digital content distribution, today announced the launch of AnyTime®, a new digital subscription option that enables consumers to read any magazine, anytime. As showcased today during the 2012 BlackBerry World event, AnyTime® will support the BlackBerry® 10 platform.
AnyTime® gives consumers more choices regarding what they read, where they read, and how they share content that interests them most. With the flick of a switch, AnyTime® gives consumers 10 minutes of free reading each month to explore new magazines -- with hundreds of titles to choose from. With AnyTime's® innovative technology, consumers can pay a monthly fee for an unlimited plan to read as many titles as they wish, for as long as they like. Users who want to access content offline can upgrade to a mobile plan and pay a slightly higher monthly fee.
PixelMags founder and COO, Ryan Marquis, said: "We've worked closely with RIM to create a revolutionary new app on the BlackBerry 10 platform that allows consumers to review and purchase their favorite magazines, while discovering hundreds of other reading choices from our worldwide base of titles."
Martyn Mallick, Vice President Global Alliances and Business Development at Research In Motion, said: "We are thrilled to be working with PixelMags. They will provide BlackBerry customers an exciting new way to consume magazine content, while providing publisher partners with a profitable mechanism for bringing their content to the BlackBerry 10 platform."
Committed to the digital magazine medium, PixelMags helps publishers increase readership and revenue while building and introducing their brands to a new, device-savvy worldwide audience. Over the past year, PixelMags, working alongside the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC), helped in the passing of a rule that allows the AnyTime® program to count towards publishers' single copy digital sales.
