Five has launched its download service, and you can get episodes of CSI before they are broadcast. I’m not a great fan, but my daughter is, so I thought I’d check it out as a surprise for her.
And what do we find at http://download.five.tv/systemrequirements/? We find the following…
To use Five Download you need ensure that your computer is set up
correctly with the right software and a broadband connection. Please
follow these system requirements.
Five Download is only available in the United Kingdom
You need Microsoft Windows XP or 2000
You need Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0
ActiveX must be enabled in your web browser
Cookies must be enabled in your web browser
Users of Windows XP must use Windows Media Player 10. Users of Windows 2000 must use Windows Media Player 9
You need a broadband connection of at least 500kbps
You need to set the clock on your computer to the correct UK time, time zone and date
So here I am, on my Mac, using Firefox, trying to avoid the security disaster that is ActiveX. I think I’ll wait for the DVD. Or perhaps check out BitTorrent.
