Frequently asked questions about our digital options

I've read the website for years, why are you charging for it now?
Portions of The Maui News have been available on the web without cost; however, readers have never gotten the entire paper. The new app offers you the entire newspaper, every word, delivered to you regardless of where you are. Charging a small amount for the digital version will allow us to continue to provide you with the most comprehensive report on Maui available anywhere. News gathering throughout Maui County comes with a cost. Since 1900 readers have shared that cost by subscribing to the newspaper. By having online and app readers sharing that cost it will assure that we will be able to continue the award-winning coverage readers have expected.

When will each day's newspaper be available?
The digital version of the newspaper becomes available around the same time the newspaper does, which means you can enjoy it with your morning coffee regardless of where you are. After you have registered online, you can sign up to receive an email alert when the newspaper is posted to the web.

How long will it take to download the newspaper to my tablet?
The tablet edition is optimized to download very quickly. Depending on the speed of your WiFi connection, you should be able to be relaxing with your newspaper in around a minute.

I don't have a tablet, why do I have to pay for the digital version?
You don't, print and digital have different rates. Our bundle price offers you a significant discount when you take both, but we offer non-bundled prices as well. A digital-only edition gives you access to both the tablet app and our website, www.mauinews.com.

I'll just get my news about Maui elsewhere
The Maui News as well as other professional media outlets employ professional journalist to gather the information that you both want to learn about as well as the information you need to know about. Facebook and Twitter may give you your friend's opinion on an issue but will normally fail to give you a fair and objective view of the big picture.

How do I sign up for my account?
Sign up is easy, simple click on the digital access link or follow the links at the bottom of the story. Once you have your account set up you can enjoy digital access to The Maui News anytime, anywhere.

If I am on vacation, can I still read the digital version of The Maui News?
Yes, Simply log in as you would from your home. You can now read your Maui News from anyplace in the world.
