75% of Apple News+ Magazines in Canada are already free

These are the Canadian magazines Apple News+ (formerly Texture/Next Issue) is offering. I’ve been reading magazines with my Library Card through Press Reader and Flipster, and noticed a good amount of overlap. So I went down the list to see just how many you could get for free (and read on your phone/tablet, just like Apple News+). Turns out, most.

Out of 27 magazines, only 7 weren’t available from the library. That’s 74% (so I’ll round up to 75%). That’s not bad for free.
