Just signed up, I am getting a grey screen on everything I go to watch.

What's the deal and how can I fix this?

The FAQ says if I have any antivirus software/extensions to disable hem, I don't think I have any.

I am using my Laptop which is on Windows 8, using IE + Chrome.

Ditto when I try to access a programme on TVNZ on demand using latest version of chrome and firefox but works on TV3 using the latest version of Kubuntu Linux.

I had a similar experience recently. It worked on iPad app and one of our computers, but not on my Mac or, frustratingly, the HTPC. Rebooting our router fixed it.
