Sentinel readers gain ‘All Access’

FAIRMONT? – With the launch today of our electronic edition, subscribers to the Sentinel have a new way to enjoy the newspaper that has served the region since 1874.

All Access, which can be viewed at, makes the entire newspaper available to subscribers. The feature also is available in app form for Apple and Android tablets and smart phones.

With the apps, readers can view every story of every page of the print version of the newspaper, regardless of their geographic location. Readers can flip through the pages, view the newspaper in gallery fashion, or view articles in an easy-to-navigate grid. Once downloaded, the newspaper can be viewed without Internet connection.

On the web, subscribers can access the entire print edition in addition to the website, which contains articles dating back to 2008.

A link has been added to the upper right corner of the home page to get additional information, establish an All Access account, and to locate the apps. A page at provides information and links that will help users enjoy the Sentinel anywhere.

If you are not a subscriber, you can click on the subscribe link to become one. All Access is included with print subscriptions, or can be purchased separately.

“The addition of a digital version of the newspaper was a logical next step for the Sentinel,” said Sentinel Publisher Gary Andersen. “Readers can now access the same newspaper regardless of whether they are on their porch or traveling far away from southern Minnesota. We are very committed to serving our readers wherever they may be, and this is a great step toward delivering what our readers expect.”
