    Sorry it wasn't meant to be harsh.

    As a pro web designer, if they can't make it work in some way on most browsers then they are bad designers and the site doesn't deserve you visiting them.

    I checked out the site and the code they are using. The links to the TV shows are a mix of formats, .ram .asx mostly .asx. This is streaming windows media. If you get flip4mac http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm
    it's free, Quicktime will play windows media files.

    BUT in the code is this warning...

    if(confirm('Warning: THIS SITE CONTAINS EXPLICIT SEXUAL CONTENT
    INTENDED ONLY FOR ADULTS OVER THE AGE OF 18
    IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR DO NOT WANT
    TO VIEW SEXUAL CONTENT DO NOT CLICK THE ENTER
    BUTTON. EXIT BY CLICKING THE BACK BUTTON OF YOUR
    BROWSER OR CLICK THE EXIT BUTTON. IF YOU WISH TO
    VIEW MATERIAL OF A SEXUAL NATURE CLICK ENTER')){
    document.location.href=url}

    do you really want to go there?

    Haha that's funny.:rolleyes: But it's sad, this is prolly the only thing (besides the MacBook problems) why I'm holding back on Mac. I asked an Apple rep on how to get around the IE-based websites on Mac (without BootCamp) and he said "Absolutely! You can use Safari, FireFox, or Netscape to view IE websites". I was :mad: in disbelief. Although there's BootCamp beta, I think it's such a rip off to fork in $200 to play some of my favorite IE-picky games and view IE websites.
    That's true but I'd hate to leave MSNBC as my news center.
    Recently MSNBC have been responding to my feedback (finally!) in attempting to utilize Flash and ditching WMP/IE for it's news videos.
