Five major magazine publishers launched their own digital newsstand today called Next Issue Media. Hearst, Conde Nast, Time Inc., Meredith, and News Corp. are basically trying to create a Netflix for magazines — for $9.99 or $14.99 a month, subscribers can read unlimited amounts of the 32 included magazines. Its market is currently limited to newer Android tablets, but should come to the iPad later this year.
