Alternatives to the RNIB Newsagent Service on RealSAM Pocket

Unfortunately the RNIB Newsagent service has been impacted by a major server failure that they are working hard to fix. This means that customers who read newspapers and magazines on Pocket, email and other digital streaming services have been impacted. The RNIB has indicated that services are likely to be offline for the remainder of this week so, in the meantime, we wanted to share some of the other options available on Pocket to stay up with your daily news.

You can also contact the RNIB as they are able to send some services via email, please email newsagent@rnib.org.uk or call the RNIB helpline on 0303 123 9999.
