    The newspaper is of great value...

    Hello.

    The newspaper is of great value in the world today. By reading it, we can keep in touch with the whole world even though we live in out-of-the-way places.

    Are there any errors in this sentence?

    ... even though we live...
    ... even if we live...

    Isn't either way fine?

    No, even though is factual, even if is hypothetic.

    out-of-the-way places
    Is there an expression like this? Wouldn't far-flung sound better here?

    The newspaper is available in big cities and in places far from them, so it would be better to choose "out-of-the-way" over "far-flung".

    <out-of-the-way>
    far from a town or city
    - a little out-of-the-way place on the coast

    <far-flung>
    a long distance away
    - expeditions to the far-flung corners of the world
