Access Help: Web Subscription

Your Web subscription gives you access to all of our locked premium content from the latest 5 issues, once you log in. 

How To Access The Site

Step 1.

Go to any page of our web site and click on the LOG IN button located at the top left of the page (above the red 'SOS' logo). 

  • Enter your registered email address (or username).
  • Enter the password you usually use for the SOS site.

Step 2.

When logged in your username will appear in italics in the top-left box next to the MY ACCOUNT and LOG OUT buttons.

If you are an SOS direct Subscriber, you can now access all of our web site content and read the latest reviews/techniques articles the day they're published.

  • To access the current issue, click the MAGAZINE menu button or go to
  • TIP: use the Month/Year selectors on that page to quickly locate past issues.

Non-Subscribers can still read over 12,600 unlocked articles for FREE, but most of the great content of the latest 5 issues will be locked. Also, you will not have access to Digital Sub benefits like the Tablet/Smartphone app, and you will need to buy our monthly Full Issue PDF (if you require it).

Step 3.

Check your MY ACCOUNT details. Click MY ACCOUNT to navigate to your MY ACCOUNT > EDIT options (Address, Password, Preferences etc).

Please take some time to modify your settings, if necessary.

If you have problems accessing your Web subscription, please visit our FAQ page for further help.
