Highland News Leader subscribers can now have access to the complete newspaper online.
New, as a value-added bonus, all paid News Leader subscribers have unlimited access to the BND digital platforms, including the e-editions of the News Leader and Belleville News-Democrat, which display the complete newspapers as they were printed.
Current News Leader subscribers will need to visit www.bnd.com/plus and click on “existing subscriber” to activate their membership — just follow the prompts and it will walk you through the sign-up process. Subscribers will need to make sure that they are using the name, address and phone number that is on their print subscription. The system verifies access based on matching a number of these things.
After that, you will need to enter an email address and create a password. The system will verify that you are a current subscriber and create the account.
Then, any time you want to access the e-edition, just log in using the email you put into the system and password you created.
As the News Leader and BND are currently reconfiguring things on the both websites, the easiest way to get to the e-edition is to go to www.e-bnd.com.
