Connecting people through news.

What’s PressReader?

PressReader is a place where people from around the world come to read, share, and talk about all of the stories that matter to them. We’ve partnered with thousands of publishers around the world to bring the best newspapers and magazines onto a single platform that’s updated every day.

As a reader, you can subscribe to PressReader for unlimited access, or you can just visit a HotSpot that’s sponsored by one of our partners and get full access just for walking in.

With over 6,000 magazines and newspapers, updated as soon as they’re available from the publishers, every reader can stay connected to the stories they care about and discover new favourites.

How does it work?



Readers call the shots. That’s why we give them the power to choose what they want to read and where they want to read it. Readers can access our entire library on any of their devices with a single subscription and every user’s personalized home feed is designed to help them find stories they’re interested in.



Anyone can browse our huge library when they visit one of our sponsored HotSpots around the world. We’ve partnered with hotels, airlines, cruise ships, libraries, cafes, and other businesses across the planet to provide complimentary access to their customers. It’s the best way for any brand to deliver a personalized reading experience.



PressReader is designed to make the reading experience engaging. Our proprietary SmartFlow technology can guide readers from one story to the next in a way that’s optimized for their device. Or they can flip through digitally enhanced replicas of their favourite titles.



We work with our publishing partners to find solutions to declining print circulations and an increasingly fragmented media landscape. Whenever you read an issue on PressReader, you support the people who wrote it. Our publishers get to extend their reach and get paid every time someone reads their publication. The best part is, it doesn’t cost publishers anything to join PressReader.


It started with a vision. In 1999, we wanted to keep people connected to the stories they cared about – stories from home – whenever they travelled. Now, PressReader is seriously changing the game. It’s an award-winning digital platform that delivers digital content to readers in a way that makes sense to them.
We’ve seen the shift. We’ve seen the changes in how people consume content of all kinds. So much has changed since 1999. Our vision, however, hasn’t.
We’re still connecting people through news.
