LAST DAYS: 28 days of digital access for free

THERE'S never been a time in our recent history where the need for accurate and up to date information has been so critical.

With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe, authorities have made major announcements affecting everyone's lives almost daily, sometimes hourly.

Now you can read everything free with us. 

You cannot rely on your social media feed or friends. You need stories written by journalists using trusted sources and experts - delivered to you as they happen.

We realise the need to keep our readers informed and that's why we have kept 'need to know' information freely available.

But we don't want our audiences to miss out on the exclusive insights and premium content coming from teams across our regions, the nation and from UK to New York.

That's why for a limited time, we are offering 28 days of digital access for free. That not only includes this site but News' major metro titles like The Courier-Mail and Daily Telegraph as well as titles including The Gold Coast Bulletin and the legendary NT News.

It's a chance for you to see the very best of what we have to offer during this unprecedented time.

Once the 28 days is up, it will be followed by another 28 days at a discount of 50%.

Each day, as news happens locally, you will be sent breaking news alerts and alerts via our app. Make sure you sign up for notifications.

We also provide regular local newsletters as well as a special coronavirus newsletter around lunchtime to let you know what's happened that morning.

As well as breaking news, we are providing stories from a special new series called Hibernation: Your coronavirus guide to daily life.

It includes great advice on what to cook, what to watch, what to listen to, and how to deal with the practical, emotional and financial challenges we all now face.

As well as comprehensive coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, a subscription delivers access to a range of great content: exclusive news, sport, business, lifestyle, entertainment and opinion articles and access to our digital print edition, a complete digital replica of Today's Paper.

You can even access a selection of back issues so if you miss a day, you can catch up.

But you'll need to be quick - the deal expires soon. You can find out more and read the terms and conditions here.
