Magzter launches new subscription model with unlimited access feature

Digital magazine store and newsstand Magzter has launched a new subscription model called Magzter Gold that offers users unlimited access to over 2000 magazines, reports The Next Web.

Magzter Gold is priced at Rs 499 per month, which would allow users to access the magazines across devices like mobile, tablet or on the web. For those who don’t want to pay such a steep price, there is Magzter Gold Lite which offers access to up to 5 magazines for Rs 249 per month. It’s worth noting that users can pay for the subscription using their Paytm wallet as well.

On offer are international magazines like Lonely Planet, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Conde Nast among others, while among Indian magazines users will get access to Femina, Open, Caravan, and Outlook among others. Here’s a list of all magazines available under Magzter Gold.

Magzter Gold currently seems to be available only for iOS & Android users, though the normal Magzter service is available on Windows, Samsung App Store and Amazon App Store as well.

In December 2013, Magzter had raised $10 million in investment as a part of a Series B round of funding from publisher Singapore Press Holdings and Kalaari Capital. At the time, Magzter had claimed to have 16 million users from 200 countries. It had previously raised an undisclosed amount in a Series A funding round from Indo-US Venture Partners, in May 2012.

Google Play Newsstand: In September last year, Google extended its news reader service Google Play Newsstand to India with 30 Indian publications. Users can also subscribe to magazines like India Today, Vogue India, GQ India, Cosmopolitan and Business Today among others. Besides content, the Play Newsstand also offers features like the ability to save any article or magazine offline.

Other players in this space are Handygo’s Rockstand, Zinio, and Ver Se Innovation’s mobile news & e-book app News Hunt among others.

Note: The list of Indian magazines available under Magzter Gold has been edited. The earlier version stated that India Today was available under Magzter Gold, which isn’t the case.
