Digital subscriptions FAQ
Do I need a subscription to read Salt Lake Tribune content?
Visitors to sltrib.com can view 7 different articles (including opinion columns, comments pages and multimedia features) per month for free. Access to our homepage, section pages, podcasts and obituaries is unrestricted.
Can I use an ad blocker on sltrib.com?
Subscribers are allowed to leave their ad blockers on while they're reading sltrib.com. Non-subscribers must turn off their ad blockers to read sltrib.com pages. (Note: Salt Lake Tribune obituaries are hosted on a third-party site, Legacy.com, which has its own rules on ad blockers.)
What do I get with my digital subscription?
Digital subscribers receive unlimited access to all content on www.sltrib.com and to The Tribune’s mobile app. Subscribers also will be emailed a daily “e-edition” — a PDF replica of the entire print edition that may be read on a browser. They also are invited to Tribune-sponsored events.
The Digital Unlimited subscription does not include Tribune newspaper delivery.
How much does a digital subscription cost?
All Digital Unlimited subscriptions are 99 cents for the first month, and $7.99 afterward.
Existing print subscribers can become digital subscribers for an additional $1.99 per month.
Can I buy an annual subscription?
Yes. Digital Unlimited annual subscriptions cost $79.90 — a savings of $15.98.
I already have a print subscription. Do I get a discount?
Yes. Print subscribers can become digital subscribers for an additional $1.99 per month.
Can I use my print-subscription account to log in to sltrib.com?
No, you will have to create a new account to log in to sltrib.com.
I already have a subscription to the Electronic Edition through Utah Media Group. Can I also access sltrib.com through this subscription?
No. The Electronic Edition, sold through Utah Media Group for several years, is separate from sltrib.com and provides access to a readable digital replica of the day’s paper. It does not connect to sltrib.com subscriptions.
However, a daily copy of the e-edition is included with new sltrib.com subscriptions.
How can I read the e-edition that is emailed to me as part of my sltrib.com subscription?
The “e-edition” — a readable digital replica of the day’s paper — will be emailed to you daily. Open it by clicking on any headline or on the front page.
•If you are reading on a phone or tablet, you may be asked to choose whether to read on an app or browser. Choose browser to proceed.
•You must use the most recent email to access the e-edition. Once you have opened today’s issue in the browser, navigate to the black menu on the right-hand side of the page and click “Editions.”
Does my sltrib.com subscription give me access to the Digital Replica app?
No. You must read it in a browser, and will not be able to log in to the app.
Can I bundle print and digital if I’m not already a print subscriber?
Yes. Our digital & print package includes Friday-Sunday print delivery and an Unlimited Digital subscription, all for the special price of $13.99 per month. Upon signup, digital access will begin immediately, and print delivery within two to three days.
How am I charged?
Annual subscriptions will be charged once a year, beginning with your first signup.
Monthly subscriptions (both Digital Unlimited and Digital Add-On print subscribers) will be charged once a month on the same calendar day. (For example, subscribers who sign up on the 15th of the month will be renewed every 15th of the month.)
Print subscribers who purchase a Digital Add-On subscription will be charged separately for their print subscriptions by Utah Media Group.
You may cancel at any time, but we do not give refunds. Your sltrib.com access will continue until the end of your current billing period.
