    I thought I would be able to watch all my tv shows as I cannot get CBS or CW shows which all my favs are on without Adobe Flash or macromedia. It stinks as I know I will have to pay a restocking fee as well. I did not realize I could not get all my episodes and I know I could join Netflex Or HULU+ etc again another fee as I feel I spent enough on the device I thought that was the point. I thought since in my home we have like 5 ipods...2 MAC's Apple seemed like the logical choice since the account was already set up etc. I am very disappointed any suggestions out there as I am not very computer savvy as most. I just wanted this for TV.books and camera really and of course the internet. I know Samsung gallery tab has adobe our pc in house runs on Windows 7 so I think I would be okay with it. I like everything else but no adobe:( Any suggestions how I can get around this without Adobe? I think there would be more customers for the Ipad if it supported adobe. I have been watching my shows for 2.99 an episode thru Apple this week:( Help me please anyone?

    Have a look at Splashtop Remote Desktop for iPad and the Skyfire Web Browser.

    If you use the search feature (upper left-and corner of every page or the bottom of the iPF App) you'll find numerous, similar discussions.

    Hope that helps!

    NOTE: Please post any suggestions that can assist the OP, however this thread won't be allowed to devolve into another Flash pro/con thread. TIA! :)

    So what you are saying is that you did not do research before purchasing your ipad or you would have known that Apple does not and never has, nor never will, support flash.

    Right?

    Netflix and Hulu are very worthwhile services to subscribe to. Tons of content and Hulu has many new shows up very soon after they play live. I understand the Flash thing not working for you but there are ways around it as others have pointed out.

    With splashtop do you log onto your own computer, or another server someplace?

    There is a CW app. You can watch all you want for free on your ipad.

    They could have done their research but maybe didn't realize the site was Flash... they did say they weren't computer savvy.

    Agreed - and as Ive said a bunch of times: Initial research and reviews will only give you so much information. Owning the device for a while is the ONLY way to fully evaluate it. Almost like a car - you can read good reviews all day but until you drive it and live with it for a while, you cant fully assess whether it works for you or not.

    I would suggest you do your homework on an android tablet before switching as there are several media and streaming sites that aren't supported on that platform either - far more than the iPad, in fact. I switched from android after discovering I couldn't use Netflix, Hulu or HBOGo, among others.

    The sites may not work in Safari, but the saying "there's an app for that!" is true. Both the CW and CBS have 'em.

    You can watch every TV Channel on your iPad

    Just use your SlingBox. I have about 800 channels.

    Spashtop works fine when I am on my own home network but unable to obtain a connection when on the road both with WiFi and 3G.

    Actually I did do my research for close to 3 months as I did know there was no adobe flash and I figured there would be ways around it and there is as I get all my tv shows thanks to all the positive feedback I got on this forum.
