Am puzzled by a recent email offering a digital subscription - the black tag deal - via

It makes absolutely no reference at all to the online archive. Below I have pasted a quote from the FAQ saying that anyone who subscribes via gets access to the online archive.

Is this still the case or do I only have access to the 13 magazines that I subscribe to ?

If I will have access can I access using a Linux system or must it be via a tablet or phone ?




Q: Who is entitled to access the Online Archive?

A: The Online Archive is available to all Digital and Print + Digital Subscribers that have signed up directly via our website ( Access to this archive is only available with subscriptions purchased directly via ourselves because we require a subscription number in order to automatically enable your access. If you purchase from a third party seller (e.g. PocketMags, Apple, Google Play, Amazon) you will not have the required subscription number and so will not be able to access the archive.

If you have just subscribed to Print only you won't get the archive.

If You Have Print + Digital or Digital only you will get access for the duration of your subscription. Only if bought via our own subscriptions department.

Someone else will confirm Linux requirements.

For Linux, just use a Web Browser. I use either Firefox or Chromium/Chrome on Debian.

They could do with a more upto date cover for BW's link, 232 is a bit out of date.
