    Im ready to pull the trigger on a new iPad ( 32gb w/wifi only ) but have one more concern that I cant seem to get/find a definitive answer for.

    So, if you can help, please do...

    I want to be able to watch sports through on-line programming like 'Live Access' & 'Universal Sports' on my iPad as I watch other sports on my TV.

    Im just not getting the 'Flash' & 'non-Flash' & 'HTML5' issues that Im hearing & reading about except that Jobs hates Flash which is seemingly over used, blah blah blah...

    Im a simple guy & just need a simple answer. Are on-line sports events viewable on the iPad or not???

    If not, is there an APP that will make it possible?

    Thanks for any help...

    I've never heard of either service but have just been onto the sites using my iPad. All Access clearly states it uses Flash for video so that won't work on the iPad. Universal Sports also doesn't work as it uses Silverlight.

    Supposedly if you are from the UK there is a website that offers Live sports to iPad users. To get that to work in the US we would need a browser that supports proxies and i don't think there is one yet.
