What some of our customers say

"I love talking newspapers...Now I can no longer read, they are my lifeline."

"Your service brings in to my living room, a local newsagent."

"It's so accessible and totally portable; you sit on the bus and plug in your headphones and you're reading your magazine like anybody else."

"A lot of those magazines I took in print form, I had to gradually give up. To have them back again is great! It re-opens up a world I thought was closing."
