Next Issue Media, the company who provides digital distribution of popular consumer magazines, has announced plans to bring their service to Android in early 2011. It’s been described as the “Hulu for magazines,” except they won’t be blocking any and everything Google and Android as Hulu does. (Sorry, I had to throw that pot shot out there.)
CEO Morgan Geunther says that the choice to bring this to Android devices first wasn’t because they favored Android over the popular iOS platform, but because Apple’s terms did not lend themselves well to a lot of the publishers Next Issue is partnered up with. Thus, they’re using Android as the next best platform to show Apple that they should consider changing their stance on magazine publishers.
We’ll embrace you with open arms, Next Issue! [via ATD]
