Time, Sports Illustrated & Fortune Offer Free iPad Access For New Subscribers

Most magazines are now available in digital formats, but very few offer simultaneous print and digital subscriptions for one price. Now a few of Time Inc.’s bigger print products have made a deal with Apple that would give some subscribers access to the iPad version of Time, Sports Illustrated and Fortune magazines for no extra cost.

Those magazines’ iPad versions go for $5 per issue, but this deal will give it to new subscribers free of charge.

The hitch (aside from having to own an iPad) is that you’d need to also purchase your magazine subscription through Apple’s iTunes store.
