"We're thrilled to be partnering with Rogers Media to bring for the first time the Next Issue experience to customers outside of the U.S.," said Morgan Guenther, CEO of Next Issue Media. "In addition to its industry leading magazine titles, the Rogers organization offers unparalleled reach to consumers throughout Canada via its cable, wireless, broadcast, sports and Internet properties. We look forward to working with Rogers to ensure a seamless delivery of world-class magazine brands to new and existing consumers."

The Next Issue Canada digital newsstand will be available to Rogers cable and wireless  customers on October 15, with access to all Canadians starting December 15. U.S. subscribers will have access to Rogers magazine titles October 15. The app will be available on iPads, Android tablets and Win8 devices, with a smartphone companion launching in the coming months.

In addition to the leading U.S. titles, Next Issue Canada will offer access to the most popular Rogers titles including: Maclean's, Chatelaine, FLARE, Today's Parent, Sportsnet, Canadian Business, LOULOU and MoneySense. The initial version of the app will be in English with a French version to follow in 2014.

"The Next Issue platform is the future of magazine content consumption. Our investment in Next Issue signals a collective commitment to our digital future," said Whyte.  "Next Issue Canada delivers added value with an all-you-can-read experience.  It retains the best of print while making the content come to life vividly, giving readers a more personalized, interactive experience. As a result, the magazine of today is even more powerful than the magazine of yesterday."
