As a subscriber, we want to ensure you continue to get the most out of your digital subscription.

It gives you access to not only our best stories, but the best stories from across the News network, including the Courier-Mail, The Daily Telegraph, The Herald-Sun in Melbourne, as well as major regional titles like the Gold Coast Bulletin, Cairns Posts, NT News, The Mercury in Hobart and so on.

If you love a full-featured digital editon of the paper, you can read the full digital version of any of the above titles.

it's a good added bonus to your local news offering online.


In coming months, as COVID-19 restrictions allow, we plan to livestream some great local sporting events.

Being a subscriber, you will be in the box seat of the best local action.

As a subscriber, we deliver the news to you with less advertisements so stories load faster, the pictures are bigger and the content is easier to find and read.


If you haven't already done so, you should download our app which is available from Apple's App store or Google Play for Android devices. Just search under the name of your local site.

But your best way to find all the local news is straight from our website.

Our app is another way to see our coverage displayed well.

You can also read the digital edition of The Courier-Mail, The Daily Telegraph or check out what Andrew Bolt has to say in the Herald-Sun. If you are into NRL or AFL, their coverage is exceptional.

Last time we checked, not everyone had taken up this offer.

It's easy.

1.    If you have previously activated your Courier/Telegraph+ entitlement: Simply visit the Courier/Telegraph website and log in using the subscription email address and password you gave them on redeeming.


2.            If you have not previously activated your Courier-Mail+ entitlement: Simply log in to our website, select My Profile, then My Rewards and then follow the links.

Activate this, and you'll have the best of local, state, national and international news on your device.

The Courier-Mail and Daily Telegraph also has some wonderful puzzle options available via its site, and I find they're great for family time. Whip out the tablet and let the family join in.

You can also access Sudoko and the Crossword on our site here.

Again, thanks for supporting local journalism in these difficult times. We really appreciate it and will continue to work hard to improve your online experience.
