Now Playing was a short-lived entertainment magazine that focused on popular entertainment, including movies, television, music, DVDs, and games. It was published by the media conglomerate theGlobe.com, starting life as a special section in Computer Games magazine in 2004. In April, 2005, Now Playing launched as a separate magazine.[1] The headquarters was in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.[2] It ceased publication in 2006 due to MySpace spam. Within a year, parent company theGlobe.com was forced to shut down its other print titles as a result of an unfavorable ruling in a spam lawsuit.[3]
