What is a Digital Magazine?
Texas Highways magazine has partnered with Zinio to provide our magazine in digital format with the same layout and text as the print version. The digital format offers:
- Automatic delivery of every issue directly to your computer via the Internet.
- The ability to read your magazines anytime, anywhere—even when you're offline.
- A hyperlinked Table of Contents takes you directly to the articles, features, and sections of most interest to you.
- Quick links to advertisers and additional web content.
- Keyword search that helps you find anything within the issue.
- The ability to highlight text and add "Post-it”notes.
- Paperless archiving. Keep back issues on your computer for fast reference and easy storage.
Does the digital format contain everything in the print format?
Yes, exactly the same format.
How Does it Work? What application will I use to read my digital magazine?
Zinio has developed free reader software, called the Zinio Reader. When your first digital issue is available, you’ll receive an email notification from Zinio. As you download the first magazine, you’ll also be guided to register with Zinio and download the free Zinio Reader software.
Will the free Zinio Reader work on my computer?
Here's what you'll need to use the site, access My Library, read online, download the Zinio Reader and fully experience your digital magazines.

How do I get my digital issues?
When you install the Zinio Reader, you will also create an account with Zinio. Zinio will notify you by email as each new issue becomes available. The Zinio Reader also has a “Delivery Manager” feature that will download your issues automatically. You can retrieve them manually if you prefer.
Do I need to be connected to the Internet to read my magazines?
No, you only need to be connected when you download your issues. After that you can take your computer anywhere and read your magazines offline. The hyperlinks in the issue and advertisements will require an Internet connection.

Digital Magazine Features
Can I read my digital magazines on more than one computer?
Yes! You can install the Zinio Reader on two (or more) computers, and then download your digital issues to your desktop at work and at home, for example, for convenient access anywhere.
Will back issue archives be available? Is there a charge to access them?
Each issue you receive is stored on your hard drive in a “Digital Magazines” folder for your own archiving. If you ever accidentally delete your magazines, you can download each one up to three times at no additional charge from Zinio.
What is the cost of a digital subscription compared to print?
A digital subscription costs exactly the same as a U.S. subscription to the print edition. If you are an international subscriber, you will probably save money with the digital format, since you will get the U.S. subscription price.
I’m already a print subscriber. Can I convert my subscription to the digital format? Or can I get both?
To convert your print subscription to digital, contact the at Texas Highways. To obtain both a print and digital subscription, each must be purchased separately.
Why do you need my email address?
Zinio will notify you by email when each issue of your subscription becomes available.
