Ap­ple wants ma­jor U.S. news­pa­pers in the U.S. to add their con­tent to Tex­ture, the mag­a­zine dis­trib­u­tor app Ap­ple pur­chased in spring, Re­code re­ports.

Ap­ple has con­tacted e New York Times, Wall Street Jour­nal and Wash­ing­ton Post about join­ing the app, ac­cord­ing to peo­ple fa­mil­iar with the e ort, Re­code re­ports. An Ap­ple rep de­clined to com­ment on the e ort.

Tex­ture al­lows peo­ple to ac­cess as many sto­ries as they like from a se­lec­tion of mag­a­zines for $10 a month. It’s not clear if the pa­pers would be in­te­grated into the ex­ist­ing ser­vices or made into an ad­di­tional ser­vice.

“But no mat­ter how Ap­ple struc­tures the pro­posal, it may be a hard sell for any of the pa­pers, which al­ready have big sub­scrip­tion busi­nesses of their own and would be con­cerned about can­ni­bal­iz­ing their own sales,” ac­cord­ing to Re­code.
