The Lebanon Democrat, Mt. Juliet News and Hartsville Vidette readers will soon have an all-new way to experience nearly everything the three newspapers have to offer in a completely different way.

Lebanon Publishing Co. will unveil new e-Editions for the three newspapers Tuesday after months of planning and working to implement the technology. Subscribers to the e-Editions will get all the features of the newspapers’ respective print editions delivered faster, available anytime on a computer, tablet or smartphone and with added interactive features.

“We are proud to offer this innovative technology effort to combine ease of use for our readers with the benefit of increased connectivity for our advertisers,” said Lebanon Publishing Co. president and publisher Joseph H. Adams. “Our online readers now have an affordable option that takes the print newspapers to a new level.”

The e-Editions, found at lebanondemocrat.com/e-edition-landing-page for The Democrat, Mt. Juliet News and Hartsville Vidette, give subscribers an online replica of the newspapers with working links to allow readers immediate interaction. Throughout the digital pages of each newspaper, readers will be able to click on links and email addresses within stories and advertising to take them anywhere they wish immediately.

Best of all, the e-Editions are available at noon each day papers are published during the free trial period to subscribers. All it takes is a simple signup and readers are ready to start enjoying the e-Editions. The e-Editions will be free to everyone for a limited time, and will be just $5.99 per month for a subscription thereafter.

Registered users of the websites automatically get access to the e-Editions, and those not registered can sign up for free at the newspapers’ respective websites.

“It’s never wet, always where you can find it and just a click away,” said director of content Jared Felkins. “It’s a true newspaper experience right on your computer and even comes with pages that flip. This new e-Edition is truly the best of both worlds.”

Readers will now be able to read the paper 24 hours a day from anywhere there’s Internet access. Or download that day’s pages and read them later.

It’s also easy to navigate. Readers will be able to flip pages, enlarge text, search archives and print articles. It will even connect readers to advertisers’ websites.

To sign up, simply go to the respective newspaper’s home pages, click on the link in the top navigation bar and follow the sign-up instructions. Those with questions or need technical support can email webmaster@lebanondemocrat.com.
