September's digital edition of Sight & Sound

Film magazine Sight & Sound has released a new HTML5 digital edition for desktop, iPad and iPhone as well as a native iOS application, which is available through Apple's Newsstand.

The title has also digitised its 80-year archive, along with that of sister-title the Monthly Film Bulletin. Subscribers can access all issues published since 1932 via a £20 bolt-on.

BFI (British Film Institute), which publishes the titles, has launched the new digital and app strategy in order to reach a wider audience and generate more revenue, according to a release.

The digital archive, web and native iPad editions use PageSuite technology, which is also used by local publishers including Newsquest, Archant and Northcliffe.

Rob Winter, publisher of Sight & Sound, said in the release: “These publications are a unique record of the development of a vibrant film culture in the UK. Being able to offer access to the archive as well as a digital edition of the new magazine means we have a much better opportunity to engage with like-minded film fans all around the world."

Sight & Sound, which is running a once-a-decade poll on the greatest films, is offering various subscription rates, including an app-only subscription priced at £34.99 for 12 months. Print plus digital and app-only subscriptions include access to two years of archive content.
