PLAYSTER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH STREETLIB
MONTREAL – May 10, 2016 – Playster, the all-inclusive streaming platform, has announced a partnership with StreetLib, the largest independent multi-language publishing distributor.
The partnership brings another 90,000 eBooks to Playster, including titles from independent and self-published authors. The eBooks will be available to users in the coming weeks and can be downloaded to mobile devices for offline reading.
“Our goal is to expand our audience and allow readers to enjoy books in a language they’re comfortable reading in,” says Philip Keezer, CEO of Playster. Users will be able to access books in several languages, including Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and German.
Antonio Tombolini, CEO of StreetLib says, “Getting StreetLib’s catalog in Playster’s collection is a great opportunity for our authors-publishers to reach a new kind of readers, also keen on other medias. After consolidating our presence in Europe, we are now focusing on North-America and partnering with Playster aligns with our will to improve our offer there. We’re very happy about this new partnership and look forward to working alongside Playster’s dynamic team.”
