Amazon shuts down Kindle magazine, newspaper subscriptions


San Francisco: Amazon has stopped selling magazine and newspapers through the Kindle Newsstand and also said it will stop distributing current Kindle Newsstand subscriptions in September. Kindle Newsstand lets people read Kindle-specific versions of publications directly on their devices.

“For monthly Kindle Newsstand subscriptions, you will continue to receive your issues until September 4, 2023, unless you decide to cancel,” the company said in a statement. After that date, you will not be able to renew your subscription through Amazon. You may continue to read the issues which have already been delivered to you.

The company has also stopped selling print magazines and newspapers in addition to Kindle newsstand subscriptions. The company said, “You can continue to manage your print magazine subscriptions through Amazon until June 5, 2023.” After that date, all customer service inquiries for any remaining active subscriptions will be handled directly by the publisher.

Earlier this month, Amazon announced that it would be closing eight of its Go convenience stores in the US. According to CNBC, the tech giant will close two Go stores in New York City, two locations in Seattle, and four in San Francisco on April 1. The company said it would work to help the affected employees secure other roles at the company.
