Have you downloaded Firefox?  PBS is programmed for Firefox.

Did you follow all of the the steps of Len's instructions? It was more than just F12. Everyone else I've directed to those steps have gotten it to work.

It is your browser, not Win8. So if you download Chrome, Firefox, Safari, any of those should work. They are working on IE10, its just not been release in full version long enough.

Thanks for the hints, this worked for me last night!  I DO NOT LIKE Windows 8/IE10.  (but then again, I'm the cheapskate who didn't buy a touchscreen laptop.)
