RNIB offers our online audio newspapers through the Sonata. Some customers received a year's free subscription to the Newsagent download services with their new Sonata player, when this runs out the service will stop working unless the subscription is renewed. To continue receiving newspapers after this you will need to subscribe to the MP3 service which costs £75 per year.
