You should not need Flash for anything now (well, not iPlayer and other legitimate sites):

They do. It's called Britbox.

Latest Firefox stops flash from working automatically but some sites that allow it look for it first and give an error.
Disable it completely and provided you're in UK, BBC iplayer will work (with html5, assume).

Good. I never heard of it, but will research it. does it cover ITV/Ch4 or Harlech by any chance?

EDIT: Searching on DuckDuckGo led me to Britbox.com, which threw me out.

Unfortunately, BritBox is exclusively available in the United States and Canada.

I haven't looked at it. I was just aware that it existed. I know it includes ITV but I didn't know that it was exclusive to USA/Canada.
