With the Advent of pay to use E-Newspapers

Has anyone had any problems in the Kobo devices with the use of the Calibre Newspaper conversion plugins, since a lot of the papers such as the Toronto Star, and Toronto Sun have converted to please pay us to read our papers?

I only download toronto star on saturday, and this week it didn't download...just stuck on 1%, but since I didn't notice til sunday, i didn't bother retrying and didn't think anything of it, since I've been having internet problems, so sometimes I have to restart the fetch news to get it to work.

Annoying if that's the issue!

I doubt there will be an issue. I'm just downloading today's paper with zero issues happening (and it's way more than 20 articles).

From what I can tell the paywall is based on the use of cookies to count the # of articles read. I might be wrong but I don't think calibre accepts cookies.

Thanks for the heads up PeterT, which if that's the case then great. Has anyone else dealt with anything Similar?
