How to subscribe to and then access your Courier ePaper

So you’ve heard about The Courier’s special digital subscription offer and want to sign up?

As you may know, we are making access to our website and ePaper (The Courier newspaper itself in an on-screen format) free for three months to help keep you informed during the coronavirus crisis.

We wanted to share this short guide showing how to sign up, and then how to access the service every day.

First of all, one important message: this offer is only for accessing the service through our website. You may find Courier eReader apps in app stores — but this offer won’t work with them.

Let us explain more in this short video.
