    I wanted to watch past episodes of Dragons Den.
    I logged on to cbc.ca/dragonsden/episodes.
    I selected the episode and clicked at the play button.
    I was told I needed Adobe Flash Player.

    1. I thought Adobe Flash layer was included in Windows 8. No? And I cannot find anyway to install the "latest version" either.
    2. My Shockwave Flash Object is enabled.
    3. My Active X Filtering is disabled.
    4. Then I went to install Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 8 (KB2880289) and I was told it is not for windows 8.1

    So, how do I watch the episodes?

    updating...............

    I turned on my Win 7 laptop and I was able to watch the episodes.
    I came back to my Win 8.1 laptop, put the cbc.ca/dragonsden/episodes url to Compatibility View box, still no episodes.

    What browser are you using.

    I had run into a problem with flash a while back in Chrome because somehow more than one instance of flash was installed. I had to go into the setting and disable one of them before it started working again.
