TNT Video FAIL

Two years ago, I complained about how the Associated Press forced you to use Internet Explorer if you wanted to view their videos. Since that time, the AP has moved to a cross-platform compatible video viewer. Who hasn’t, right?

Um, TNT, that’s who.

For some reason, my DVR didn’t record Leverage last night (very cool show, btw) and I tuned into the late re-run about 20 minutes into the show. I figured, hey, TNT has full episodes online. I’ll just watch it there.

So, I hopped on over to TNT and got this.

Seriously, TNT? Windows only? What year is this, 1998? Maybe I need to only use Internet Explorer too. Perhaps you could suggest I upgrade from Netscape Navigator.

I decided to try Hulu. Nope. Just a link back to TNT.

*sigh*

When will media companies learn the lessons that YouTube taught them when it comes to video? Don’t make me download a plugin (unless I don’t have Flash, which is common to virtually everyone). Don’t make me switch browsers. And, for the love of all that’s holy, don’t tell me I have to have friggin’ Windows.

I like your damn show, TNT, but your website sucketh.
