The main TV3 page comes up ok.  But when I go to watch a show it flickers twice then:
 
We were unable to return you to TV3
Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears the website continues to have problems.

What you can try to do
    .   Return to tv3.co.nz

this has been happening ever since I first tried to watch the block online a couple of weeks back.   (hadnt noticed before)

Are you using Internet Explorer desktop or Modern UI? Tried Chrome or Firefox?

I just watched 'The Block' on my Windows 8.1 laptop on TV3onDemand and it worked fine. Watched it in Chrome v38 (desktop mode). Even had the adblocker turned on.

No issues what so ever so it is therefore not a Win 8.1 problem but most likely a browser problem.

- Works OK on IE 11 in desktop mode.
- Works OK on Chrome v38 in Win8 Mode

Thank you so much.  Have always used Internet Explorer and never dreamed of changing it.  Downloaded Firefox and all working perfectly.  Thank you for your time and advice people. :)
