It'd be nice if discovery.ca would actually tell you that it's a
geographical limitation and not something else. When I try to watch, it
tells me:

> This content is not currently available for viewing in your browser. For
the best video experience, we recommend using a supported browser for your

I assume their coding is a little off there. Otherwise, I know what a FAQ
is but I wouldn't know how to instantiate it as a template on the type Va.
And what, I need a 75" display too?
