Press paywall jumping

Post by antdad »

I haven't honestly looked but is anybody successfully getting around press paywalls or am I just way behind the cracked curve on this one? I don't mind reading the right wing press but I ain't paying for it. :)

Did anybody even think about trying to find out how to do it, uh must be my devious mind. Here you go, not sure I'm allowed to post the link but it seems to work on all the large online UK papers I've tried. FT, Times, Telegraph ie the adult papers for those with IQ's over 90.

That's why the Mail gets quoted so often ... no paywall.
I have no idea why, but I can read everything on the Torygraph without paying.

Did you ever take out a sub? I took a 3 month digital sub out of the Torygraph for a quid and was able to still read it using my log in for many months later.

Anyhow the extension for chrome works, been enjoying the FT without any culture war histrionics.
