    I have just been on a four hour train journey and tried to watch live tv. However I could not load adobe flash player. Can anybody let me know how to watch live tv. Many thanks to anybody who can assist.

    The iPad does not support Flash, so you cannot load the Adobe Flash Player. If you want to watch live TV then you'll need to load a dedicated app - in the UK the BBC iPlayer app, or Channel 4's 4oD will work fine.

    I guess the train could have WiFi, but if it was 3G you'd be lucky to maintain connectivity sufficiently well to be able to watch live TV - and you'd need 3G (HSDPA) as opposed to EDGE or GPRS.

    iPad TVCatchUp.com

    It's not an app, it's a website, iPad browser enabled and allows you to watch live TV broadcasts on the Freeview network (assuming you're in the UK). If not, sorry.

    Not really related to TV on the iPad (though gets round your Flash problem) download iswifter from app store. Great for flash sites. I use it to update my website & also lets the kids play Moshimonsters. Not as fast as safari & sometimes can be a little pixelated but handy for when you need it. You could try it for TV.
