If you’ve recently been notified about changes to your newspaper delivery, and you have questions about it, you may be able to find answers in the following Q&A.

Q. Why can I no longer get my paper through carrier delivery?

A. Unfortunately, carrier delivery is no longer available for your neighborhood. Switching to the U.S. Postal Service for mail delivery ensures reliable, consistent delivery of your paper.

Q. When will my paper be delivered?

A. Monday through Friday editions will be delivered the same day through the USPS. Sunday early editions will be delivered with Saturday’s mail.

Q. What if I switch to mail delivery and do not like it? What are my options?

A. You have full access to the e-Edition, digital content, and the smartphone app included with your subscription. If you would like to change your subscription to digital-only, we can help you with that.

Q. Is there different content in the early Sunday edition and the Sunday edition that’s available Sunday on newsstands?

A. The early Sunday edition includes puzzles, comics, sports, news, feature stories, investigative projects, and more. Late-breaking news or sports scores that aren’t printed in the early Sunday edition are readily accessible online through, The Inquirer App, and the e-Edition.

Q. Mail sometimes comes much later than my paper was delivered by carrier. What can I do?

Q. How do I get the digital version if I don’t have an email address?

A. You can visit anytime without an email address. However, some content may be restricted to those who are logged in with an email address. You will need an email address for the app and to access the e-Edition, which are both included with your print subscription.

Q. Why can’t I get delivery of the Daily News?

A. The Daily News is no longer available to be delivered or mailed to certain addresses in our readership area. We are planning to provide subscribers with The Philadelphia Inquirer, by mail, in these areas instead of the Daily News.
