Yes I know!
It sucks!
But I booted up XP on VMware and then loaded the page and there isn't really anything exsitting on there, as you have to pay just to see stuff you can get free form alot of other places! and get alot more (eg, hulu)

But even so they don't need to block out the page completely, alot of us Mac users have windows media player plugin things wich will let media player content play/stream on Macs anyway (like the TV3 site)

It is worth while for Mac users that are also subscribers to lodge a trouble ticket with them and voice dissatisfaction with being unable to access the service.

Yes that "was" what I was using too, but they have made there Mounty cap very low so I can't use it anymore. Looking for another way...

How can you watch hulu when you're no located in the United States?

Edit: I just had a look, it appears that they've changed the limit from 10gb per month to 3gb per month :(

Is it possible to use the RealPlayer flash downloader to save old episodes watched?
