They're good lads and lasses, I agree. If you've not got a digital subscription yet I'd urge you to consider it.

The freebie online viewer they are using is dreadful. It's slow and it resets the zoom level each time you turn the page. I gave up.

Thanks for the feedback but we assure you we tested this against all similar page-turning magazine platforms and it was hands-down the fastest to load for a large magazine like Sound On Sound with over 160+ pages.

Puzzled why would you want to keep the same zoom-level as you turn pages? Surely you wish to see the double-page spread or single page (you can view both ways) in its entirety before you zoom into something?

But, each to their own, and sorry if it's not your thing -- that's why we offer 4 ways to view/read our monthly content when you take out a (great value) DIGITAL subscription. Each reading medium has its own pros and cons:

* iOS/Andorid Tablet with up to 5 simultaneous device licenses
* Web access to HTML versions of all monthly articles
* Full Issue PDF download (works on smartphones too)
* Digital Magazine page-turner

Should paper subscriptions have arrived by now? Or do we in the North have another day or so to wait? ;)

My copy arrived a few days ago, I live in Nottingham.
However, in the past I’ve seen the latest SOS in WH Smith’s before my copy has arrived so it could be completely random. :lol:

Mine arrived Wednesday. Usually arrives Wednesday or Thursday, but it has been as early as Monday, or as late as the following Monday. The vagaries of 2nd class post :shh:

I shall have to break with habit and try the digital version.
It's not nearly as good for swatting mosquitos though.

We always send out free replacement print copies to any subscriber whose magazine does not arrive. Give it a few days and drop me a PM.

There are still problems with mail in UK and abroad, mainly due to big backlogs that have built up with fewer mail workers able to go into the sorting houses during early days of the pandemic.

Just checked your account, and your subscription lapsed after the August 2020 issue -- hence why no September issue has arrived with you (which also locks you out of using the Digital component to view September, so best use the Digital Magazine 'replica' page-turner for now?

If you go renew your sub, it'll start with October Print+Digital issue, but I'll post you out a free September 2020 magazine.
