Time Inc. and Sports Illustrated introduces "All Access" digital subscription plans to deliver the iconic print magazine to consumers on Android tablets, smartphones as well as on the web. Earlier this week, Time Inc. announced plans to make TIME, Fortune, People and SI available for subscription on the HP TouchPad when it's introduced later this year.

The new apps from the editors of SI are an extension of the title's aggressive development initiative. In the last eight months SI has introduced a new magazine iPad app, SI Snapshot (developed in HTML5) for Google Chrome and a new SI Facebook Fantasy Football game. There're also several new Swimsuit digital products, including 3D, coming out on Feb'15th. And last week, a concept for SI on the Android Honeycomb was showcased by Google.

The specific plans are:

  • Print/Digital (Samsung Galaxy/Android Smartphone/Web): $48 annually or $4.99/month
  • Digital Only: $3.99/month
  • Current print subscribers have free access to the digital package throughout the remainder of their term

Beginning today, SI "All Access" includes new magazine apps for the Samsung Galaxy and Android smartphones (OS 2.1 and higher); web access to the issue (after log in) can be found here.
