Apple and Time Inc. Make A Deal, Print Subscribers Get Free iPad Access

by on May 2nd, 2011

The Wall Street Journal today reports that Apple and Time Inc. have reached an agreement which allows subscribers of the print editions of Time’s major magazines to access the iPad versions for free! In other words, if you are currently a print subscriber to Time’s major titles, you get the iPad access at no charge.

Starting today, if you currently subscribe to Sports Illustrated, Time or Fortune magazines, you will be able to access the iPad app versions of these magazines. This list of magazines is added to Time Inc.’s People magazine which already had an agreement in place for existing print subscribers.

However, Time and Apple are still in disagreement over plans to offer subscriptions via the iPad.

Time Inc. and other major publishers have yet to agree with Apple on terms for selling subscriptions to their iPad editions, the next step beyond making them available to existing print subscribers. Talks are hung up on Apple’s resistance to sharing information with publishers about their iPad customers, which publishers say is critical to applying the “TV everywhere” model to magazines.

While users will have access to the aforementioned titles, they will have to purchase/download single issues individually for the iPad.
