Make the most of your digital subscription

Dear subscriber,

Firstly, we want to thank you for your support of local journalism. Your subscription helps to fund stories that really matter to our local community. Without you, many of them would never be told.

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.

In recent months, we have also introduced some new innovations - including live sports streaming of local junior rugby league and rugby union games. You can expect to see more of that in coming months.

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 Queensland Times.

You also have access to the digital edition of your local paper.

For instance, if you're away from home and want to see the paper as it prints, download the Digital Edition on your device, be it desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.


Look for the Today's Paper module near the top of the website, which shows the actual front page. Click on 'read now' and you can flick through the entire paper.

If this is your first time reading the Digital Edition, we may ask you to log in again, using your masthead account details, but it will be seamless next time you access this benefit.

Download the Digital Edition on your device, be it desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.

Seeing how your paper looks from the beach or your favourite park, that's gold!


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 I 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.


Another bonus in taking up your Courier-Mail or Daily Telegraph subscription is the access it gives you to +Rewards.

You'll find that on the right-hand side of the menu bar at the very top of their home page. There are great freebies and discounts on offer to you.

And why not have a go at Super Coach, another fun family activity? Spend some time with the family picking your team, and starting the battle for bragging rights in either the NRL or AFL season.

There will be an exciting announcement in the next few days about a new SuperCoach game we are launching this month. is the address, and subscribers get to sign up for Super Coach Gold.

We're for you.
