What does a digital membership cost?

Baltimore Sun home delivery subscribers receive All Digital Access for just 99 cents a week, while for non-subscribers it's $3.99 a week. For a limited time, we're offering an introductory rate of 99 cents for the first 4 weeks to all new digital members.

Can I get a digital membership as well as home delivery of The Sun?

Yes. To get digital as well as the Baltimore area's most complete news and information package, special sections, money-saving coupons and other retail advertisements, comics, the New York Times crossword and Parade magazine, email sundigital@baltsun.com or call 410-332-6807.

Now that I have become an All Digital Access member, I want to use The Baltimore Sun news apps specifically designed for the iPad, iPhone and Android devices. How do I do that?

Just go to iTunes or Google Play store and download the free app. When you begin to access the stories displayed in the app, a log-in screen will appear. Enter your email address and Press+ password.

I always read the obituaries and death notices—are they available without limit?

Obituaries, which are articles written by Sun staff, as well as death notices, which appear on pages created by our affiliate partner, Legacy.com, are free to view on baltimoresun.com at all times for all users.

Why wouldn't I just go to another local news source to get my news?

With more than 100,000 articles, photos, videos and blogs, baltimoresun.com, touch.baltimoresun.com and our apps have far more original reporting and news than any other local source. The Sun's news staff is by far the largest in the area, resulting in coverage you can't get anywhere else. If you want the whole story—and you want it first—you need baltimoresun.com.

It's the first of the month. Why don't I have more page views?

baltimoresun.com and touch.baltimoresun.com each offer a number of free page views every 30 days, beginning with your first day of access; it doesn't correspond to an actual calendar month.

If I refer a Baltimore Sun story to others on a social media network (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), will the story count toward the allotment of "free" page views?

No. If someone accesses a Sun story from a social media link, that page view does not count toward the limit on page views allowed. So, feel free to refer as many stories as you would like on your social networks.

Is the popup ''join now'' window a secure URL?

Yes. If you right-click on the window and ''view frame info'' or ''frame source,'' you'll see it's an https URL.

I get email newsletters from baltimoresun.com. Are they impacted?

No. Your email newsletters deliver as usual and only if you click through to baltimoresun.com will the page limit begin to apply.

If I have a computer at home and a computer at my office, do I need two digital accounts?

No. You can log in using your digital account username and password from wherever you access the Internet.

I run an office. Can all of our employees use the same account?

If your office has fewer than 10 employees, each user should have his or her own digital account. For 10+ employees, site-level pricing is available. If you are interested in site-level licensing, please contact Tim Thomas (410-468-2655, tim.thomas@baltsun.com).

If I already subscribe to the print version of The Baltimore Sun, do I receive a discount to my digital membership?

Yes. Customers who already subscribe to The Baltimore Sun print edition receive a hefty discount to their online membership, paying just 99 cents a week for an All Digital Access package.

Do eNewspaper subscribers receive the home delivery discount for digital membership?

Yes, everyone who pays for a subscription to our eNewspaper qualifies for the home delivery discount.

I have a subscription to The Baltimore Sun but not for all 7 days. Do I still receive the home delivery discount for digital membership?

Yes, you do. All home delivery subscribers qualify for the discount.

Can everyone in my household use the same account?

Yes, you can use the same account for all your family members.

All billing is via credit card, and invoices are not available. However, you will receive advance notice of any price increases through Press+, which is affiliated with the Baltimore Sun as a vendor.

If you ordered through an Internet link indicating it is powered by Press+, you must cancel by notifying Press+ directly in accordance with their terms and conditions. You may cancel at any time prior to a new subscription period to avoid automatic charges to the credit card you select for payment by calling 866-717-7377.
