See Section 3: Flash Player Requirements for more information. Some features may be limited or unavailable if you are running a configuration that is not recommended. The following profiles are recommended for a standard TheBlaze TV experience. Note: If your computer is more than approximately three (3) years old, then you may experience technical difficulties when attempting to use TheBlaze TV and TheBlaze TV plus.
