From a Post on Digital Book World:

Ebook and book app developer, SkyInk Studios, has announced a plan to launch a new ebook subscription service, booxl. The service will employ a model similar to both Netflix and Spotify. Customers will be able to download the booxl app to view ebooks and book apps through their tablet and e-reader devices and also stream the content online.

The company began developing the platform some months ago as a way to offer their own titles and those of partner publishers and authors. That idea became a vision to create the leading ebook subscription service. In addition to its network of partners, the company is building relationships with outside publishers and authors. SkyInk is also in dialogue with a major data provider to license a substantial number of ebooks for the platform.

Unlike some niche ebook subscription services, booxl will be a multi-genre platform, offering customers a wide breadth of selection spanning all sorts of fiction, non-fiction, reference, education and even digital magazines and comics. The platform will include a large children’s section and child-friendly interface. The company hopes for its beta version to be live in February.
