Vox.com will be a part of Apple’s upcoming magazines and news subscription service. As per Bloomberg’s report, Apple has inked a deal with Vox for its upcoming subscription service due to be unveiled next week.
Vox.com is a part of Vox Media which owns other popular online properties like The Verge, Recode, and SB Nation, the deal inked by Apple is only for Vox.
The site is owned by Vox Media Inc., which also publishes the Verge, SBNation and Eater, though its other properties won’t be part of the service initially, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the accord hasn’t been announced.
While Vox does not offer any subscription service of its own at this point, its CEO Jim Bankoff had revealed at SXSW this month that they would be adding a subscription option with different tiers later this year.
Apple will be unveiling its Apple News Magazines subscription service at “It’s Show Time” event next week. The service is expected to cost $10/month and offer subscribers access to a bunch of newspapers and magazines. So far, Apple is reported to have signed up The Wall Street Journal for the service along with other popular publications, though the Washington Post and The New York Times have declined to be a part of the service.
