Never heard of the website.

Have you tried things like hulu? or netflix? Or actually going to the networks website?

No experience with that site, but windows viruses won't work on your Mac so you'll be okay. If you want to be safe turn on your firewall System Preferences -> Security -> Firewall but it won't make much of a difference.
