feeds from subscriber bulletins

I used to pick up the feed from The Times (UK) until they went subscriber only.
I am however registered and can access the WEB pages but cannot add them as a channel in AWASU, is this because New International have removed the RSS feeds?

If not how can I pick the summaries as before?

What happens when you try to add the feeds in Awasu? Post one of the feed URL's here, or email it to us (support@awasu.com).

If they've protected the feeds, it could be in one of several ways. You may need to enter a username/password, or they might be doing it using cookies. Try opening a browser window in Awasu, logging in to their site, then trying to subscribe to a feed.

OK - if I open up thetimes.co.uk in AWASU, then when you try to read anything it transfers to timesplus.co.uk and asks if you want to subscribe, find out more or in a 3rd column it should allow registered users to login but the login boxes do not appear.
If you go to the base WEB page at timesplus, you get a message to say you are accessing an encrypted page and if you hit the login tab button, you go back to the subscribe/more information page without the login!

Interestingly the url shows .... /app/barrier?execution, so does it know the request comes via Awasu and stops the login boxes being displayed?

If I login first in firefox and then bring up Awasu it makes no difference.

Yah, The Times really are doing their best to drive away all their readers :|

I'm not quite sure what's going on. Awasu does identify itself, so they may not be allowing access to anyone other than the most popular browsers.

Logging in from Firefox before firing up Awasu won't help, it has to be IE.
