Shock mag debuts in Canada

Hachette Filipacchi's Shock mag has come to Canada. The mag, already a success in France under the title CHOC, is a kind of news-y youtube.com with a shock spin (10% is consumer-generated content). In Canada, it bears a cover price of $2.99 and will be available on newsstands beginning today. A digital version is also available at shocku.com and a mobile offering is slated for the end of June. Video content, games and more are also on offer on the site. The biggest shocker? There are only a handful of ads in the 98-page print property. Brands represented include Bowflex and the Girls Gone Wild video franchise. Circulation in Canada stands at 51,000.
