That a magazine sensibility complements specialty television is demonstrated by yesterday's launch of a digital magazine for iPad and iPhone of Blue Ant Media's Travel+Escape channel. The company has last year launched a similar digital music magazine for its music magazine AUX and has just launched Cottage Life TV as a complement to its very successful print magazine of the same name. According to a post on the TechVibes blog,
The inaugural issue of this magazine showcases five of the worlds most gripping travel destinations including Norway, Chile, California, Space and Canada’s own British Columbia. The issue is dedicated to pushing the limits and takes readers on an adventure to face their fears from climbing a 3,000-foot wall in California all the way to Space travel.The free app through iTunes provides a free sample issue and a single issue thereafter costs $1.99, with a subscription being $14.99. An Android version is not yet available.
