FYI: Spectrum TV.com "Live TV" Tab May Not Work in Firefox

Guys,

 

Just a heads up that the Live TV portion of Spectrum TV.com may not work in later versions of Firefox.  This is because all new versions of Firefox block Adobe Flash Player content by default, and the only way around is to go into Firefox Settings and disable the Flash Blocking option, (not recommended.)  Spectrum TV's Live TV option works on IE 11 and Microsoft Edge just fine.  Has anyone tested Spectrum TV Live TV on Google Chrome?

 

My recommendation has always been for Spetrum to update Spectum TV.com to HTML5 format.  That code is much safer than Adobe Flash.  I included a JPEG file of what customers will see when they try to run Spectrum TV.com, Live TV from the website or Manage DVR settings in My Account.  For me this is on Firefox 59 Windows 10.  Clearing cache has no effect.

Guys,

 

I went there now.  Got the "Run Adobe Flash" prompt.  Clicked On it and  "Remember this Decision" in the Firefox Window and it worked.  Remember, if you get the Adobe Flash run prompt, you should ONLY run Flash on Trusted Sites, as there are rogue sites out there that like to use Flash content to spread malware.
