The New York Times and PressReader announce new agreement to drive global distribution and reach new audiences

PressReader has become the exclusive distributor of The New York Times Company’s digital news products and digital replica editions to hotels, airlines, cruise- and ferry lines, as well as non U.S. public libraries.

The New York Times Company (NYT) and PressReader have announced a new collaboration to further expand NYT’s global presence through PressReader’s network of channel partners spanning over 150 countries.

The partnership provides an even broader global audience with unparalleled access to The New York Times’s journalism, which has earned numerous prestigious accolades, including the highest number of Pulitzer Prizes of any news organisation.

PressReader, as an industry partner of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), is also uniquely positioned to offer The New York Times to travellers globally — on the ground, in the air, and at sea. The New York Times’s journalism will further be available to numerous remote and isolated locations with limited connectivity, such as science research centres in Antarctica.

In addition, outside of the U.S., PressReader will now distribute The New York Times’s journalism to public libraries and patient-care facilities.

PressReader’s channel partners in over 150 countries are now able to get access to not only The New York Times’s digital replica edition but also its digital “News” product — containing current and historical journalism dating back to 1851.

Additionally, as part of the agreement, The New York Times Company will continue its decade-long collaboration with PressReader and its white-label tech platform Branded Editions — which is equipped with auto-translate, on-demand audio capabilities and additional accessibility features — for The New York Times, The International New York Times, and TimesDigest.

We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with PressReader Group. At The New York Times, we believe great journalism has the power to make each reader’s life richer and more fulfilling, and all of society stronger and more just. This agreement allows us to increase access to our high-quality, original, independent journalism from anywhere in the world and connect with an even broader global audience.
