    So, I just got my new Droid X a few days ago...I'm totally new to it and to Android phones in general. I was psyched about the X running Flash so that i can check out upcoming episodes of shows or whatever from the channel website right from my phone. However...HBO.com is telling me that "my device does not support Flash", and cwtv.com tells me "sorry, your phone does not support video streaming." What's the deal with this? :sad: Is there a fix? I ever called verizon and told them about HBO.com not working and they said that "certain sites are not compatible with the X flash" blah blah blah. Anyone experiencing the same thing, or know how to fix it? Please help! Thanks

    Yeah, they told you correct, some sites are not compatible with the adobe flash version that is out for android, and theres nothing you can do about it.

    Honestly I have no clue, I use flash if I happen to go to a site that has it and it works....but not on purpose.

    It's not that flash isn't actually capable, it's that sites like HBO and Hulu block phones from connecting to their servers. I'm guessing it's because they want you to buy their shows for your phone on Amazon or something.

    Don't hold you breath

    In the ongoing feud between TV content providers and Google, expect anything running Android to failto load Flash cotent from TV providers. In this case the phones are collateral damage (as I see it) from the GoogleTV "ban."

    Until the media mavens get their heads out of their respective asses and stop trying to dictate how we consume media, expect this spotty experience to continue.

    It is not Google's fault, nor is it a problem with Adobe, but idiot media types clinging to outdated business models looking to avoid anything "futuristic"
