PressReader, one of the industry leaders in the all-you-can-read digital magazine and newspaper space, launched two new initiatives this week that will provide free incentives to subscribers for a limited time.
The first is the announcement of a joint offer through some of PressReader‘s content partners, and that’s the free Kobo ereader with the purchase of an 18-month subscription to one of a handful of news titles. The free Kobo Arc 7 Android tablet is suited for this type of daily reading habit, and it available to new subscribers of any of the following digital newspapers: The National Post, The Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen, The Star Phoenix, Regina Leader Post, Windsor Star, Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald, The Province, or The Vancouver Sun.
The second announcement was the offer of a free read of the Forbes Daily replica edition, available to all consumers via the PressReader website or its app between now and April 30th. This daily edition contains business news and associated political interest news. Users will also be able to access back issues during that time, as well as comment on many of the articles.
This news came after the announcement earlier this week that PressReader is adding thirty additional titles to its catalog of nearly four thousand publications. While PressReader is a platform that powers public libraries’ digital periodical lending, as well as other service industries like in-room digital newspapers for the hospitality industry, there are individual user-based plans for subscribing to specific titles.
