From the editor’s desk

Dear valued 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, as well as major regional titles like the Townsville Bulletin, Cairns Post, NT News, The Mercury in Hobart and so on.

In recent months, we have also introduced some new innovations - including interactive puzzles and up to date local, national and international coronavirus coverage and analysis - so keep an eye out for those.

As a subscriber, we deliver the news to you with fewer 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 NewsMail.

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

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.

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 … when they are playing.

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.

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.

You can now play interactive puzzles online

On top of all this, one of the most loved newspaper features, the crosswords and puzzles has been brought to life for the first time for digital subscribers of the NewsMail.

Each day, this site will host a new national crossword and Sudoku puzzle. They are interactive, so you can enter words and numbers onscreen.

Puzzles can be found at our online games hub.
