As of the June 7, 2012 issue of Athletics Weekly, our digital editions will be delivered by Pocketmags for Apple, Android, PC and Mac and Kindle Fire.
This move is designed to improve your digital reading experience, particularly in the ever-growing mobile and tablet market and to enable us to increase our offering to you to include, back issues of our British Olympic Legends series and our AW Greatest series of bookazines, including the recently released London 2012 Olympic Games preview volume, The Greatest Show on Earth.
Your AW issues will continue to be available via Exact Editions as well as Pocketmags until July 31, 2012 to allow you time to move across to Pocketmags at your own leisure.
Please note, back issues will not be transferred across, however they will remain downloadable as PDF files on Exact Editions until July 31, 2012, so please feel free to download as many as you wish via the Exact Editions site.
