We've partnered with Telemar to launch PressReader for commercial ships

We’ve partnered with Italy-based Telemar Group to offer PressReader to the commercial shipping industry. Our offline solution makes over 4,000 current-day, full-version newspapers and magazines available for download via satellite. Crew can download publications directly from their ship’s SeaMore local server onto their own personal Android and iOS devices. Content is updated daily and is available anywhere in the world.

We already work with major cruise lines around the world to provide this service to their passengers. Our industry partners include Silversea, Seabourn, Crystal Cruises and The World. Telemar will now be the exclusive distributor of PressReader’s solution to the merchant and cargo shipping sector.

Finally, PressReader’s content will also be made available in Telemar’s innovative toctoc social hub app, which allows users to make bi-directional calls and send messages via satellite.

The new IMO Maritime Labour Conventions establish standards for crew facilities, and emphasize access to daily news, sports and entertainment. For employers seeking to comply with these standards, maintain crew welfare and retain staff, PressReader provides an invaluable solution. Companies can also use the service to host and distribute proprietary content like newsletters, training manuals, and so on.

Telemar will now also offer PressReader to the Enterprise (oil & gas including remote installation) and Leisure (yachts, passenger ferries and cruise ships) maritime sectors.
