Zinio, the world's largest digital newsstand and leading magazine app for iOS, Android and web, announced today the launch of Z-Pass, giving consumers three of their favorite magazines all in one place for just $5 per month. The first month is free and there are no commitments to term or magazine choice. Nearly 25 percent of Zinio customers read three or more titles across multiple devices making Z-Pass an even simpler way for readers to manage and access their favorite magazines.
The monthly cost of a Z-Pass is the lowest available in the market for a multiple-magazine subscription model. Z-Pass takes advantage of Zinio's "one digital library" where readers have all of their magazines in one place accessible from any digital device, including Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows 8 smartphones, tablets, laptops and home computers.
Creating a Z-Pass is simple and flexible. Customers choose three magazines from over 300 of the most popular titles among Zinio's 5,500+ digital library, including
- Car and Driver,
- Cosmopolitan and
- Food Network Magazine
for $5 per month. Additional magazines can be added to a Z-Pass for just $1.50 per title. Premium titles, including Star and The Economist can be added for an additional fee. Z-Pass customers can change their magazine line-up on demand, swapping their Z-Pass titles up to three times per month.
"It's never been a better time to be a magazine lover," says Michelle Bottomley, President of Zinio. "Access to the world's best magazines for one low monthly price allows anyone with a mobile device to always have their favorite reads with them at the touch of a finger. Zinio is passionate about connecting the world's best content with avid readers and Z-Pass removes the price per magazine barrier."
Z-Pass is available in the US and with international access available July 2013. Z-Pass can be purchased on www.zinio.com at time of launch and will be rolled out to other devices this summer. Zinio will continue offering annual subscriptions, single issues and back issues.
