Ignite TV App Web Version Requires Flash?

This App requires Adobe Flash when using Windows 10 Pro and Edge (Developers Beta).  Microsoft has indicated Flash will not be supported after December 2020 by any of it's browsers.  Will Rogers be addressing this problem (and please don't point me to Chrome, just answer the question).

FYI, this issue has also been raised in another thread: https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/Ignite-TV/Apple-has-released-Safari-14-no-Flash-support-at-all...

This is not up to Rogers at all. They have been waiting on Comcast. Comcast have been dragging their feet over this for years.

Comcast has now transitioned away from using the Adobe Flash Player in their Xfinity Stream web app: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/XFINITY-Stream-Website/on-MacOS-Adobe-FlashPlay-support-ending-soon/m-...

 

Hopefully, Rogers is in the process of updating/migrating https://ignitetv.rogers.com/ as well.

So, now it is up to Rogers.

So I'm brand new to IgniteTV and only 2-3 days ago happily discovered I could access my TV content on PC and Win10 11.6" tablet using a browser by accessing  https://ignitetv.rogers.com/

but it seems that's already at risk. Talk about pulling the rug out if Rogers doesn't come through with an alternative that can be rolled out quickly and not just late in December.

 

There has to be better communication lines with the customers than us stumbling across an important issue like this in a public forum while doing some unrelated browsing and search. Come on Rogers you can do better!

When Rogers first deployed IgniteTV, Adobe had already announced the end of life for Flash. So they deployed a new product that had an already known end date. This is of course because they just bought Comcast's solution for all of this. Since Comcast now has a replacement, I expect to see it deployed to Rogers very soon.

Re: Ignite TV App Web Version Requires Flash?

As of January 1 2021 Flash will not be supported on Windows 10 and as of now the ignite website to watch shows and recordings is dependent on Flash player on the browser.. I hope Rogers is working on a website overhaul that will be ready for the New Year
