Available titles include The Guardian, Washington Post, USA Today, The Times of India, The Hindu, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, Rheinische Post, Men's Health, and other international and regional titles from more than 108 countries. Companies can also use the service to host and distribute proprietary content, like newsletters or training manuals.

PressReader already works with cruise lines including Silversea, Seabourn, Crystal Cruises and The World, but this new partnership will make Telemar its exclusive distributor for the merchant and cargo shipping sector.

The news content will also be made available through Telemar’s toctoc social hub app, which allows users to make calls and send messages via satellite.{/mprestriction}
