(PRWEB) January 4, 2010
NewspaperDirect Inc., the world leader in multi-channel newspaper and magazine content distribution, is making available its entire library of more than 1,400 publications for the entire line of Sony Reader digital books. NewspaperDirect works with publishers to broaden their reach across a broad range of digital devices, and features publications from 93 countries in 44 languages.
Starting Wednesday, January 6, PressDisplay.com users can download any of the local, national and international titles currently available on the world’s largest online newspaper and magazine kiosk, and read them in their entirety on their Sony Reader. Some of the prestigious titles from around the world include The Washington Post, USA Today, Toronto Star, National Post, The Guardian, International Herald Tribune, Daily Mail, Irish Independent, L’Equipe, Il Giornale, Iltalehti, Bangkok Post, Kommersant, and De Volkskrant.
While other e-reading software uses simplified feeds to populate Sony Readers with limited website content, PressDisplay’s PressReader application delivers the full content of printed editions to the device. PressReader users can download publications on demand or, as an added convenience, set up a subscription to automatically download their favorite titles at a specific time, the moment they are published on PressDisplay.com.
PressReader provides a superior newspaper and magazine reading experience on Sony Readers:
Sony joins a growing list of devices already supported by PressDisplay.com, including PCs, Macs, smartphones, iPhones, iPod Touch and BlackBerry devices, IREX digital readers and, soon, Interead’s COOL-ER.
“We are committed to providing customers with the broadest selection of titles on the most popular reading devices on the market,” said Alex Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. “The moment a title is published on our platform, it’s instantly available in print, online, on mobile devices, and on e-readers. Our customers always have access to their favorite publications on whatever screen they choose to use. At the same time, we are using a proven pay-per-view business model that has benefited our publisher customers since 2003.”
PressReader’s unique content presentation technology is also an integral part of NewspaperDirect’s SmartEdition platform, which means the company’s publishing partners’ private-label newspapers and magazines, can immediately be offered to their subscribers on the hottest devices on the market, while increasing paid circulation revenues that come from being instantly available, everywhere their readers are.
PressDisplay.com is popular with consumers who want access to multiple news sources, and corporate customers who need to monitor printed media for business-critical news. With more than 1,400 full-content digital replicas of newspapers and magazines from 93 countries in 44 languages, PressDisplay.com has also become the standard in over 2,500 libraries around the world.
