    There is a web browser that claims to show flash movies (though it won't get you flash sites or games), although it warns that it doesn't work for all of them. I forget what it's called, but it's $4.99 (last I checked) and if you search for web browsers in the app store it'll be near the top of the list.

    There's no official Flash for iPad, so I have no idea what you're attempting to download (some x86 binary? xD). May I suggest researching a device before purchasing it?

    However, there's an application called 'Frash' for jailbroken devices, which I believe is a port of Android's Flash player, supposedly it's extremely buggy and unlikely to give you the performance adequate for streaming.

    Do a search on the App Store with "msnbc". There are several apps that will allow you to access the site. I do not know if you will be able to get what you want but they are free.

    Anyone knows that Apple doesn't support Flash on iOS. It is something that won't change.

    Skyfire browser. I haven't used it a lot so I can't say how well it works. It provides support for flash videos by analyzing the contents of the websites visited and by transcoding the videos to a format supported by iOS.

    Download an app called cloud browse. It's laggy but still watchable. :) .
