Global Eagle Entertainment (Global Eagle) has collaborated with Magzter, a specialist in cross platform digital magazines, to provide airlines with a catalogue of regional and international digital titles for in-flight entertainment (IFE).
Magzter, which currently is available as an app (iOS, Google Play, Windows 8, Kindle Fire, among others) and a web portal to buy and read digital magazines and books, features over 3,500 North American and international magazines from more than 1,000 global publishers. Global Eagle’s subsidiary, DTI, will distribute the new content to airline customers worldwide via its eReader platform, which is compatible with seatback and wireless IFE systems.
“Our partnership with Magzter represents our continued success in seeking out and delivering relevant content solutions for our airline customers,” commented Dave Davis, Chief Operating Officer at Global Eagle.
“At Magzter, we are consistently dedicated to increasing publisher’s exposure to the global magazine consumer. This partnership with Global Eagle Entertainment augurs well as a step forward in achieving that mission,” explained Aaron Wall, Director of Strategic Alliances at Magzter. “The magazines on our platform cover a variety of categories including entertainment, sports, lifestyle, travel and news which are all very popular with leisure and business travellers. Magzter’s extensive international coverage will also allow airlines to offer popular local and regional magazines which can be route-specific and complementary to their regional audio and video in-flight entertainment programming.”
