HBO.com among sites on IE10 Windows RT Flash "Blacklist"

Earlier this week, Microsoft updated Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 and Windows RT that allowed its built in Flash support to be turned on by default for the first time. That means nearly every Flash-based website should be able to run on IE10 on both operating systems.

However, Microsoft is still supporting an IE Compatibility View list of websites that it feels do not support IE10 with Flash. At the time Microsoft said those sites amounted to less than four percent of all Flash sites they have examined. The sites were put on this new "blacklist"  due to "the core site experience requires other ActiveX controls in addition to Flash."

ZDNet.com managed to check out the newly updated IE10 "blacklist" and found that just three websites are currently banned from being run on IE10 on both Windows 8 and Windows RT (Briggs-riley.com, webassign.net and webinato.com). Nine other websites are also on the IE10 Flash blacklist but they are only for Windows RT-based devices, such as Microsoft's own Surface RT.

The report states that HBO.com is one of the sites that won't run at all on IE10 on Windows RT. Another site that technically won't run on Flash is Twit.tv, the popular tech-based video news site, although it will run on Twit.tv's HTML5-based site.
