Just received the following notice about the switch to Nxtbook and the availability, including of back issues, as PDF. That's really nice, thank you S&T team!
Dear Sky & Telescope Subscriber,
We wanted to let you know that, after listening to our readers and in response to your concerns, we will be changing our digital distribution platform from Zinio back to Nxtbook Media beginning with the November 2019 issue. We had used Nxtbook for many years before last year’s switch to Zinio, and we have found that readers prefer Nxtbook.
How will I know when a new digital issue is available?
We will send digital issue alerts every month as each new issue becomes available. These emails will contain links to the current issue. You may choose to unsubscribe from these emails.
Will I be able to download PDFs?
Yes, with our switch back to Nxtbook, readers will once again be able to download full PDFs of each issue for their personal use. Readers may also opt to read the issue in a web browser or via the Sky & Telescope magazine app, available for iOS and Android.
What digital issues will I have access to?
You will have access to digital issues for as long as you've been subscribing, back to 2010.
What is the status of my digital subscription?
Right now, all print subscribers have free access to our digital issue. Your digital subscription has automatically transferred to Nxtbook, so there is no need to resubscribe. If you are having any difficulty accessing your new subscription with Nxtbook, whether through the app or browser, please contact customer support.
How do I access the digital issue?
Every month, you'll receive an email alert that the digital issue has become available. Click on the link available in that email, enter your email address, and you'll have access to the issue. No password is required. For any other questions about your subscription or about digital access, please call Palm Coast Subscriber Services at 800-253-0245 or contact them via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
