    Well it was great while it lasted, but it looks like more media providers are beginning to filter our the Windows RT browser as a mobile browser.

    Just two days ago, I was able to watch my NBA Broadband league pass on my Surface with no issues.... today, the link keeps taking me to the Nba mobile game time site (telling me to shell out an additional $200 for another subscription).

    Changing desktop agents do nothing for me atm, but maybe someone much smarter than I will figure out how to make a custom string.

    Do you have another Windows 8 machine to test? Its possible that it is treating IE10 as a mobile browser as it isn't recognized by their web app code.

    The new Photobucket does, but they have an option for full web. Selecting that brings back the usual experience.
