How do I access my Digital Duo bundle?To purchase your Digital Duo bundle, you will need to register by following the links on the bundle page for the Digital Duo. You will create an account with Press +, the company which provides our meter access service. Once registered for Press + you will be logged in to your account from the device you are currently using. Within 24-hours you should also receive an email from newspaper’s circulation department with your username and password information to start your E-edition subscription.
However, if you switch to another device or clear your saved login data, you may see the message asking you to subscribe. If that happens, simply click the “Sign In” button located in the right column. NOTE: The subscribe and log-in links, in grey, at the top right of the website are for blogging registration and not for access.
To access your E-edition, go to the right column on at www.thecoastguard.ca and follow the link for the E-edition or Smart edition. You can also download Press Reader apps to read your E-edition from your tablets or mobile devices. For iPads and iOS devices. For Android devices.
What if I don’t want to purchase a Digital Duo bundle? Will I be blocked from the site?No. You will still have access to 6 free articles, photos, videos or slideshows every 30-day period. Upon reaching your limit, you will be asked to subscribe. If you don’t want to subscribe, you can revisit our site during the next 30-day period to access your 6 free articles. Some of our content, like the homepage, section fronts of our site, and classifieds will always remain free for any to access. These pages, however, only include a small portion of the overall stories.
Why has The Nova Scotia Weeklies group of newspapers started charging for online access?Newspapers across the country are witnessing a migration of their readers from print to online. They, and we, can no longer reasonably expect to support our online franchise through advertising revenue. As a result, we’ve opted for a “metered” approach, in which casual readers get 6 articles for free every 30-days. Our most avid online readers are asked to pay a modest fee to continue reading, and print subscribers, who are some of our most loyal customers, are entitled to access the website’s content and the E-edition, a digital replica of the newspaper, at no additional charge.

What is an E-edition?The E-edition is a digital copy of the daily newspaper which can be read on your tablet, laptop or desktop. The E-edition has several features within its pages including a reading translation in several languages, sharing among social media services and more. The E-edition is included if you purchase the All Access Pass or Digital Duo bundles or are a current newspaper subscriber.
How do I access my E-edition?To access your E-edition, scroll down the right column on the website and select the E-edition link.
What is the cancellation policy?You will be able to cancel your subscription at any time. When you cancel, we will stop charging your account the following billing cycle.
