How do the free trials work?
All Kindle Newsstand magazines and newspapers come with at least a 14 day free trial for new subscriptions. Customers who have previously purchased or trialled a title are not eligible to receive another trial on the same title. From time to time you may see certain titles offer a longer free trial period, which allows you to try that title for longer without charge.
You can cancel your subscription at any time during the free trial period without being charged. If you are enjoying your subscription, you don't need to do anything as your paid subscription will automatically begin at the end of your free trial period. Once you are a paying subscriber, you can still cancel at any time and it will be effective from the next billing cycle.
To cancel a Kindle E Ink subscription, go to Manage Your Kindle on your device or on Amazon.co.uk. Kindle Fire subscriptions can be cancelled by going to the App Store on your Kindle Fire, then selecting My Subscriptions from the menu.
What's the difference between Kindle E Ink and Kindle Fire magazines and newspapers?
Magazines and newspapers for Kindle Fire make the most of the tablet's colour screen and contain colour photos and images. Many have interactive elements such as resizable images, video and links to web content. Kindle Fire apps are specifically designed for reading on Kindle Fire and cannot be read on Kindle E Ink devices or Kindle Reading Apps.
Newspaper and magazines for Kindle E Ink make the most of the Kindle E Reader's E Ink screen and offer the benefits of reading similar to Kindle ebooks. They generally are text based and don't feature images or interactive content. Kindle E Ink editions can be read on any Kindle E Ink device and selected Kindle Reading Apps, but cannot be read on Kindle Fire devices.
How do I get a magazine or newspaper on my device?
First, choose the right magazine or newspaper for your device: Kindle Fire titles are for the colour Kindle Fire tablets, and Kindle E Ink titles are for the black and white E Ink E Readers.
Kindle Fire magazine and newspaper apps can be downloaded for free from Amazon.co.uk or from the Newsstand store on your device. Once the free app is downloaded to your Kindle Fire, open the app and choose to take out a free trial subscription or purchase a single issue.
Kindle E Ink magazines and newspapers do not require an app. Simply purchase an issue or start your subscription directly on the website at Amazon.co.uk or from within the Kindle Store on your Kindle E Ink device.
Can I read Kindle magazines or newspapers on other devices, like an iPad?
Magazines and newspapers for Kindle E Ink can be read on non-Amazon devices, like smartphones and iPads, by using the free Kindle Reading App.
Kindle Fire magazine and newspaper apps have been specifically designed for use on the Kindle Fire tablet and cannot be read on any other devices.
I bought an E Ink subscription from Amazon.co.uk. Does that now include the Kindle Fire subscription for free?
Kindle E Ink and Kindle Fire subscriptions are separate products designed specifically for each device type. To enjoy a title on both a Kindle E Ink reader and a Kindle Fire tablet, you will need to purchase a subscription for each device.
I bought an all-inclusive print and digital subscription package from the publisher of my magazine/newspaper. Can I use that on Amazon?
Kindle Fire magazines and newspapers have enhanced functionality including existing print subscriber authentication. If the publisher of your magazine or newspaper has enabled that function in their Kindle Fire app you will be able to activate your subscription in the app without an additional charge. Usually this is done by entering your subscriber ID number into the Kindle Fire app. The subscriber ID number is given to you by the magazine or newspaper publisher at the time you purchase your subscription package. Please check with the publisher for assistance with obtaining your subscriber ID.
