Magazine e-reader for existing subscriptions?General

    I can't seem to find information on this anywhere. Is there an Android app that I can use on my tablet for reading magazines for which I have an existing subscription? Everything I'm finding (Google Play Newstand, Zinio, etc.) seems to require purchasing a subscription but doesn't give an option for existing subscribers.

    FYI - I have a Nook HD+, but nobody uses that forum so I wanted to post in a forum people actually use. I've got Cyanogenmod loaded onto it so it's straight-up Android 4.3.1.

    Where is your current subscription? If it is Amazon, then the Kindle reader should do it.

    If you are talking hard copy subscriptions, the answer is that most don't provide paper and electronic together.

    Some are through Magazineline.com, others are Discountmags.com. They are hard copy subscriptions, but some offer the option to switch them to digital subscriptions (Brew Your Own, for example, which I can read using their app). I read this article from a little over a year ago reporting that Google Magazines (Now a part of Google Newsstand) added the subscription option, "Free for print subscribers", but I haven't been so lucky to see any magazines with that option in Newsstand.

    The option is still pretty limited. I haven't seen it on any magazines I read.

    Time magazine is digitally available to print subscribers but most magazines are requiring dual subscriptions. It's not for lack of app support, it's the publishers policies that are the issue.
