LOS ANGELES, November 7, 2012 – PixelMags Inc., a world leader in digital content distribution, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Active Interest Media to distribute magazine content in their new Readr® newsstand.
Active Interest Media publishes some of the country’s leading consumer enthusiast magazines, including Sail, Backpacker, Yoga Journal, American Cowboy, Yachts International and more.
“We’ve enjoyed record growth in both publisher acquisitions and with the addition of millions of new readers as well,” remarked Ryan Marquis, COO and founder of PixelMags. “We are thrilled with the addition of Active Interest Media and their portfolio of special enthusiast magazines,” he continued.
“Active Interest Media is excited and pleased to be part of the Readr launch. The platform looks fantastic, and operates smoothly and intuitively. The AnyTime® program gives the consumer a great way to sample and discover content they may not be familiar with, which we think will be an excellent entrée into our diverse portfolio of special interest magazines,” says Pat Fox, General Manager of Active Interest Media.
Readr will launch with a patent pending technology called AnyTime. With the flick of a switch, AnyTime allow consumers to discover content with a one time, seven-day free reading period upon launch of the App. PixelMags has created a way for users to revisit the newsstand to discover magazines of their choice, offering consumers 20 minutes of free reading every month. During or after the free AnyTime reading period, consumers can upgrade to an AnyTime Unlimited plan for a monthly fee of $9.99. This allows consumers to read and discover as many titles as they want.
