Scribd, the popular e-Book and audiobook subscription service, is now offering subscribers access to premium magazine content from leading publishers including Bloomberg, IBT Media, New York Media, Slate Group, LLC and Time Inc.
Subscribers can access articles from print editions of top brands such as Time, Money, People, Bloomberg Businessweek and New York Magazine. Issues from Newsweek and The Atlantic will be added in the next few weeks.
Magazines will be available to current Scribd members, at no cost, in addition to books, audiobooks and more.
"We are excited to partner with Scribd and bring Bloomberg Businessweek to an emerging, innovative digital platform," said Josh Rucci, GM and Global Head of Media Distribution for Bloomberg.
The newly-added magazines will be next to Scribd’s existing audiobooks, books and documents.
"We've always envisioned Scribd to be the reading destination that connects readers to the best written work, and magazine articles have been one of our most requested features," said Trip Adler, CEO of Scribd. "By connecting books, audiobooks, documents, and now articles, around areas of interest, our members are now free to skim what's trending or dive deep into any subject.”
Scribd members will also be able to discover and read magazine articles in new ways, including:
Trending: Readers will have access to trending articles, hand-picked by Scribd editors.
Interests: Readers can access articles, books and original documents which are now organized by interest, making it easy to find new and interesting topics.
Full Issues: Magazine content will be offered by the article, but readers can still have access to full issues from their favorite leading publishers.
